THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Tavern at Lark Creek Restaurant Review

: The Tavern at Lark Creek is a chicly downscaled remodel of the 20-year-old Lark Creek Inn. It’s still owned by the Lark Creek Restaurant Group but now there’s a different look and a menu so appealing in its range of lower-priced yet creative dishes, you’ll almost be glad the economy’s on the skids. There’s an American Colonial style to the spindled wooden chairs in two clubby rooms; the outdoor garden overlooking a tree-hung stream is one of Marin’s choicest hangouts. In the main dining room, a wood-fired oven blazes to produce entrées such as crisp-skinned chicken or smoky moussaka with spicy lamb sausage. Starters include deep-fried macaroni and cheese croquettes with cheese fondue. Seasonal salads such as diced ahi crudo with dried olives, orange, jícama and wild fennel fronds are reminiscent of spa food in a Mediterranean resort. New Orleans flavors shine in shrimp and Anson Mills organic white corn grits, served bubbling in an individual Lodge skillet. Many dishes change seasonally. Cocktails include a cucumber-based refresher; the approachable wine list includes biodynamically produced selections.
