Two of my cousins got married within the span of a week this past summer—Cousin Kristine got hitched in San Diego first, followed by Cousin Andrew tying the knot in Sonoma. While in Northern California for Andrew’s big day, I planned several notable meals along the way including stops at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, SHED in Healdsburg, and Hog Island Oyster Co. in Marshall. The latter was one of my favorite meals of the year.
A few weeks prior to the trip, I secured reservations for “The Boat”—a full-service restaurant perched on the shores of Tomales Bay. Sun-soaked and perfectly convivial, the dining “room” could not be beat. I mean, look at this view and crowd.
