Some tidbits for you in the North Bay. First up, Eater mentions the opening of ~LUNA BLU~ in the former location of The Boathouse in Tiburon. The owners are Renzo and Crystal Azzarello, and while lunch and dinner will showcase Renzo’s Sicilian background (think lots of seafood), during the day, there will be an English tea in between lunch and dinner (wife Crystal is English). Cocktails, beer, and wine are all on offer, with 20 seats inside and 30 on the deck. Hours: Mon, Wed-Thu 11am-9:30pm, Fri 11am-10:30pm, Sat 9:30am-10:30pm, and Sun 9:30am-9:30pm. 35 Main St. at Tiburon, Tiburon, 415-789-5844.
A couple of residents in Milf Valley have been asking what’s going on at the ~TYLER FLORENCE SHOP~, which has its windows papered over and a sign announcing it will become Tyler Florence Test Kitchen. A note back from team TyFlo confirms they are in fact doing a remodel of the demonstration kitchen in the shop so they can offer cooking classes and live demonstrations. Timing and permits are still being finalized, so stand by for an update on this soon! 59 Throckmorton Ave. at Corte Madera, Mill Valley.
Novato residents will be fired up with the upcoming opening of ~COOPER’S PUBLIC MARKET~, which should be very soon. It will be a small, family-owned indoor market selling sustainably raised eggs, produce, dairy, meats, cheese, honey, and other staples produced within 30 miles by family-owned farms and businesses. Follow along on Facebook for updates. 1425 Grant Ave. at 4th, Novato.
