Wood Tavern

For authentic American food just a stone’s throw from San Francisco, check out Wood Tavern. They specialize in perfectly roasted chicken and prime rib cooked to perfection, but if you’re into deli meats, the pastrami gets rave reviews as well.

Brown Sugar Kitchen

No one does soul food quite as well as Brown Sugar Kitchen. Now in a new location on Broadway, the good folks at Brown Sugar Kitchen have mastered not only the house favorite chicken and waffles, but no one in the Novato area makes mac and cheese better or with more flair.
