REEL FRESH Hog Island halibut
Chef Matt Shapiro catches and serves creative weekly specials at Hog Island Oyster Bar. An avid fisherman who recently obtained his commercial license, Matt (when not in the kitchen) can be found heading out to sea with rod-and-reel in hand. "Ultimately, I want a hands-on experience with the fish we are serving. From start to finish." Catch this: Marin coast halibut, bean and tomato salad, peach salsa and fresh basil.
REJOICE IN THE SANDWICH CATE & CO egg salad sandwich
Bread, glorious bread is celebrated this month as August is National Sandwich Month. Cate & Co. is delighted about this as they are all about breads, in all shapes, forms and flavors; and with bread come sandwiches. Thanks to the fourth Earl of Sandwich in England, we actually have a sandwich to celebrate ("Sandwich" is actually the name of a place in England). Whether you create your own sandwich from a boule, or a loaf or a baguette, Cate & Co. has what you'll need, and of course it's Gfree. Or, you could feast on one of Cate & Co.'s sandwiches made to order while you debate if "open-faced" is still a sandwich!

The Five Dot Ranch Cookhouse has been open for over a year and they are excited for many more to come! One unique menu item they pride themselves on is the "You Pick it, We Grill It."

Ice cream is a great way to cool off during these hot summer months, and there are plenty of options to choose from at Three Twins Ice Cream. Three Twins also has dairy-free options such as raspberry sorbet and rice milk strawberry banana, which tend to be a little more thirst-quenching as the temperatures rise.
