Lots going on in our small town of San Anselmo. It feels like a bit of a shell game. What’s old is new again. It’s a circular story. Let’s look at this season’s players:

KURO NAMI Japanese Kitchen opens this weekend in our fine town of international fine culinary experiences. Owners of award-winning The Baan Thai Cuisine have spend months updating the former home of Sushi 69 (longtime owner Hiro retired and returned to Japan) with an all new look, menu, and hip vibe. Their soft opening is coming up, so visit their website, scroll down and get on their mailing list: CLICK HERE

Ryan Scott Catering (Ryan Scott 2Go). We are blessed to have fantastic food and chefs who call San Anselmo “Home” including Iron Chef and 2-star Michelin chef Ron Siegel (Madcap), Heidi Krahling (Insalata’s), Duilio Valenti (Valenti & Co), restaurateur Michael Mina, and now celebrity chef Ryan Scott is putting putting a stake in the ground with his new “Ryan Scott 2Go” concept into the former “Black Rabbit” space on SA Ave at Redwood/Saunders off of Center Blvd. This building will be the home of his ToGo ops, as well as a unique new private dining venue; very hip. Ryan is a master chef with a flair for elevated elegance, infectious fun, and he never misses a beat to grab the mic or take a guest spot on Good Morning America. Go Gett’em, Tiger! Follow Ryan’s progress on Instagram (@ryanscott2go) or his website at

Fairfax Brew Company (aka Fairfax Brew Co): Remember Ross Valley Brewing Company? it was the first microbrewery in the area… probably starting around the same time and Brendon opened Marin Brewing Company. Breweries were.. “new.” Then Ross Valley BC became Iron Springs Brewing Company which had a 20 year run. Then HenHouse came in…twice, something like a scene from Twister. And there is sat for a while after the storm. Now, it looks like Alex of San Rafael’s “State Room” and The Flatiron is expanding his hospitality reach locally with the all new Fairfax Brewing Company (slated to open this fall). The circular story here is that State Room’s brewmaster Larry Berlin used to work with us at New George’s in the early 90’s, leaving to get his brewing certifications, then became the brewer of a new brewery concept in Fairfax called.. .The Ross Valley Brewing Company in the mid 90’s. Then Larry moved on to a couple of other breweries including Butte Creek Brewing Company, Bison (organic) Brewing, and then to The State Room… and we’re looking forward to Larry’s new brews at the all new Fairfax Brewing Company. That’s… the word on the street anyway. We’ll see how this unfolds, but they’re playing it REALLY smart with a message and brand that celebrates and embraces Fairfax with players who have a history and passion for the culture and vibe of Fairfax. Stay funky, Fairfax.  Click to Visit

Woods Beer: Status > Construction mode. “Ahead of schedule” according to some, opening Spring 2025 according to others. This is a passionate project from Jim Woods and his growing empire of taprooms, and now this small batched distillery, brewery, burger, and live music venue concept. Good things come to those who wait. Hurry up and wait. Soon come, brah. Visit Woods Beer & Wine at

As we look out the window of our little family owned pizza shop, over the bags of flower and dough balls, these are the biggest local goings-on we think you’ll knead to know.  We are excited for our new neighbors, shopping, dining, and great additions to our business community here in downtown San Anselmo, pumping new blood into the Heart of Marin.

Welcome everyone. Let’s Party.
