Marin

Marin Restaurant & Bar is an inviting combination of Northern California and Minnesota influences.

For Le Meridien Chambers hotel’s third restaurant in seven years, Mill Valley Kitchen’s Craig Bentdahl and Mike Rakun turned to another iconic Northern California locale for naming inspiration. Their new Marin Restaurant & Bar also shares Mill Valley’s focus on health-conscious fare. Several years of spa-inspired cooking at Mill Valley have sharpened chef Rakun’s ability to avoid fats while enhancing flavors. He makes scallops shine anew, and chicken is given a tantalizing crispiness while preserving the meat’s deeply juicy character. Rakun also offers a sizzling filet, a lean, mineral-tasting and expertly prepared grass-fed cut. Toppings are applied with great discipline, and salads are first-rate. The breakfast menu naturally emphasizes health-conscious options: bulgur porridge, quinoa waffles, a protein-packed oatmeal with house-made peanut butter. Business breakfast? Absolutely. Pre- or post-theater nosh? Yep. Date-night destination? Sure. Another reason to head downtown?
