As much as we love our local veggies, most of
us don’t live on kale alone. Luckily, Marin more
than meets the needs of the inner carnivore.
52 BELCAMPO MEAT CO. “Meat centric,” one reviewer called it — apt term for a restaurant
located in a butcher shop (or vice versa) in the Marin
Country Mart. Grass-fed NorCal beef is the focus
— burgers, French dip sandwiches, beef tallow fries.
Steaks and more to go. belcampomeatco.com
53 EL PASEO HOUSE OF CHOPS Part of chef/ entrepreneur Tyler Florence’s mini-empire in
downtown Mill Valley, popular El Paseo has a meat
lover’s challenge on the menu: the 32-ounce Creek
Stone Cowboy Ribeye. Priced at $68, it’s recommended for two, but if you go it alone, we won’t tell.
54 MARIN SUN FARMS Operating out of a historic West Marin ranch, Marin Sun Farms
(pictured) purveys grass-fed beef, lamb and pork
online, at markets and in its Highway 1 Point Reyes
Station butcher shop and cafe, where the burgers are
so fresh they moo at you. marinsunfarms.com
55 WEEZ Y’S GRASS FED SHED Louise Clow’s bite-size organic burgers, fries and shakes are
so popular in Terra Linda, she has opened a second
location on Miller Avenue in Mill Valley. Opt for a
White Trash Burger with Thousand Island; a B-Rad —
yep, with bacon; or a veggie-based Moo-Less Burger.
When a burger is too much and a pizza is too cheesy, it’s taco time, and Marin has
every variety, from fried pork belly tacos nuevos in tourist-friendly Copita to take-
out tacos by the dozen (or more) from Marinitas.
