Madcap

A Sophisticated Story



Upon entering Ron Siegel’s newest solo venture Madcap, I was immediately impressed with the finesse of it all. This is not a place for picky children, it’s created as a sanctuary to enjoy the finer things in life and get caught up in the story Chef Siegel is trying to tell.

Vibe: Dark and intimate with vibrant art, the space looks like something you would stumble upon in SF’s Mission District rather than sleepy San Anselmo. A redesign by Michael Brennan transformed the former Lincoln Park Wine Bar into a 47-seat space filled with mostly 2-tops and some booth seating. Everything about the space whispers refinement, from the stunning ceramic dishes to the red velvet and leather banquettes.

Menu: The menu fuses Japanese and American fare, highlighting fresh produce in artistic and elegant ways. For instance, the summer melon salad may sound simple enough, but Chef Siegel’s deconstructed version with stone fruit gelatin and anise hyssop flowers is anything but ordinary. If you feel like splurging, there’s a $80 tasting menu.

Not to miss: The avocado roll appetizer filled with shrimp, topped with fresh stone fruit, cilantro sauce and marigold flowers. $9
