New Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley
Chef Gordon Drysdale, late of the Bacchus Management Group (think Pizza Antica, Mayfield Bakery & Cafe, Cafe des Amis and more), has resurfaced at an exciting new venture: Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley.
It features, brunch, breakfast, lunch, dinner, catering and live music all under one roof.
The live-music venue features soft-service, meaning you order at the counter, then take a seat to wait for a server to bring the food to you.
At brunch, look for lemon and fresh ricotta Dutch boy with strawberries and creme fraiche; and spicy duck hash with poached eggs.
The all-day dining menu features such delights as Vietnamese fresh rolls with sweet and sour dipping sauce, crispy chicken sliders with gingery cabbage slaw, and Cap ‘n’ Crunch ice cream sandwiches.
On non-show days, the cafe stays open until 10 p.m. On show days, the hall and cafe are cleared to prepare for ticket entry 30 minutes before the doors are reopened in the evening. For a list of performances, click here.
