Paradise Bay


Light lunch in Paradise. I finally made it to Paradise Bay in Sausalito. Prior to this make-over, this gorgeous place housed a rather mediocre Mexican restaurant. I had read rather mixed reviews of the new place, so it took me awhile to try it. But it was a beautiful day, and I thought the views would be as satsifying as any food. The service was very prompt and friendly from seating to serving.

The views were just as I thought on this bright and crisp Marin day.

maui onion soup


I started with the Sweet Maui Onion Soup with thyme smoked scallops. It was flavorful, and the waiter complimented me on identifying both sherry and brandy in the broth after checking with the chef.

I then enjoyed a Fresh Maine Lobster Maki Roll with avocado, mango and spicy mayonnaise. Forget concepts of traditional Japanese sushi, think fusion, and you'll be pleased with these fresh and inventive bites!

So what did this little meal cost? Or is that not an issue?

Anna Haight said...

So glad most of you enjoyed this post.

Anon: Cost? Well, it's very relative. It is an expensive area here and I've been a frog in the pot with the heat gradually turned up, so I don't notice so much. If I can't afford it, I just don't go. I honestly can't remember what the meal cost exactly, but probably with everything (meal, drink, tax, tip) somewhere between $20-30.
