Farmshop Marin, one of the county’s top dining destinations, first fired up its ovens in 2013. Opened by Thomas Keller protégé Jeff Cerciello, this 7,000-square-foot space, impeccably designed by L.A.-based firm Commune, has attracted locals and visitors ever since. Recently Cerciello brought in some new team members, including general manager Andy O’Day and bar manager Russell Sheldon, both formerly of S.F.’s DOSA, and executive chef Brian Bowen, recently of Murray Circle. Their new spring menu includes Marin Roots curried nettle soup, fava bean falafel, Spanish octopus, and green asparagus pizza, just in time for summer nights on the patio — an ideal spot to enjoy Marin Country Mart’s live music while enjoying a bite to eat.
