What’s better than bacon? Novato’s Bacon sizzles with breakfast delights, like the Pacifica Pan-Fried Frittata with smoked salmon, capers, sour cream and scallions — akin to a bagel and lox atop fluffy eggs. Next, we take the backroads through the hills of West Marin to Due West Tavern at Olema House to taste the signature Steak Frites, a tender New York Strip in a pool of red wine reduction with crispy, golden fries and a dab of Point Reyes blue cheese butter. Finally, we follow the smell of spit-roasted pork to Al Pastor Papi, one of the Bay’s hottest food trucks, where the Al Pastor Burrito draws a devoted following to the eye-catching hot pink truck.

Host Leslie Sbrocco joins guests Alexandra Charlos, Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen and Christina Davis from Mersea Restaurant on Treasure Island.
