Mersea: Treasure Island’s Restaurant with Views

Mersea: Treasure Island's Restaurant with Views

Executive chef and co-founder Parke Ulrich spent time in many notable Bay Area kitchens, including the venerable Lark Creek Inn, as well as Epic Steak and Waterbar — both of which he’s still helming — before hopping islands to take on yet another project, Mersea. Along with co-founder MeeSun Boice, a small dedicated team collaborated to bring their “island oasis” — the meaning of mersea in Old English — dream to fruition. The menu features elevated traditional American fare including fish and chips, roasted half chicken, burgers and a creative drink list. Be sure to check out the putting green and bocce ball courts — and of course, the views.
