A Weekend Getaway at Point Cavallo
A quick jump across the Golden Gate Bridge brings you to Marin County, a land rife with culinary adventures that makes you feel miles farther from the city than you actually are. On a sunny day, we recommend kicking off with oysters and rosé on the outdoor patio at Hog Island Oyster Company, overlooking the serene Tomales Bay, and spending a few hours wandering along the Nicasio Cheese Trail. Stop into Point Reyes for a taste of water buffalo soft serve from Double 8 Dairy (you’ll find it at the Palace Market). For special occasions, try the always quirky and delicious Sir & Star in Olema, and while there’s no shortage of weekend getaway spots, you’ll find a special opportunity once a year in Sausalito at the Lexus Culinary Classic.
The weekend is hosted at Cavallo Point—a spread of beautifully renovated former Army Officer’s quarters surrounding a verdant field with a stunning view of the Golden Gate. Over three days, Lexus invites its vintner partners and talented chefs from its partner hotels all around the country to create an array of themed, seasonal dinners. Guests can sign up for a collection of workshops on, say, making poke, or foraging and pickling. Maybe there will be a cycling class with a Tour De France veteran followed by a brunch inspired by the Pacific Islands. Perhaps there will be dinner and wine pairings at the breathtaking Skywalker Ranch. And of course, Lexus is always on hand with a variety of cars to test drive through the beautiful hills of Marin. If you’re looking for delicious staycation and flavors from chefs around the country, watch out for this annual culinary weekend.
