These Marin County Restaurants are the LEAST likely to be serving GMOs.
These restaurants have said that they do not use any of the suspect GMO oils or ingredients and are using most if not all certified organic and/or local food. This does not mean that these restaurants are 100% GMO Free. It just means you have the best chance of avoiding most GMOs if you eat at these restaurants. The two restaurants on this list that are the most strict about Non GMO are Good Earth and Cafe Gratitude. Please be mindful with condiments and drinks at these restaurants, most of the research I have done is around food ingredients. Thank you to all of these restaurants for being so fully committed to health, organics, and supporting local farmers!
Good Earth Natural Foods, Hot food bar and salad bar - Our favorite health food store on earth! They have a wok station with Asian stir fry, Mexican Food, Pizza Bar, Vegetarian hot food bar, Salad bar, organic juice and smoothie bar, and an ice cream station. They serve 100% grass fed beef, organic chicken and wild fish at all the stations. Everything is clearly marked on what is organic which is just about everything. This place is the real deal, they never cut corners and are as pure as it gets.
Small Shed Flatbreads - Mill Valley, CA - Meat and cheese is local and organic and most of the produce is local and organic as well. Fabulous pizza and salads and organic beer and wine options as well. They do use a non organic canola oil olive oil blend for salads, but the owner has confirmed that it is non gmo and I did follow up with the European manufacturer and confirmed that it is non gmo.
Cafe Gratitude - San Rafael, CA - These guys are hard core organic and are very careful about all their ingredients and making sure they are organically sourced.
Radiance Cuisine - Delicious, organic, simple Indian food in San Rafael. This is a small cafe inside the Open Secret bookstore. They are not using any GMO ingredients. Super sweet owners.
123 Bolinas - Fairfax, CA - Adorable wine bar/ cafe, small but absolutely delicious menu, they also have organic wine and beer options as well.
Table Cafe - Larkspur, CA - This is a lovely restaurant in larkspur that serves simple california cuisine mixed with dosas. They make their own fresh dosas. Almost everything is organic and the owner buys produce from local farmers markets. They use rice oil and no gmos. Chicken and meat is certified organic.
Vin Antico - San Rafael, CA - Wonderful Italian restaurant, almost all food is local and organic. I love their website and how they feature their farmers on the site, this is what I am talking about! This restaurant is serious about being organic and local.
Frantoio - Mill Valley, CA - Lovely Italian restaurant, they make their own organic olive oil. Most produce is local and organic, fish is mostly wild caught and safe harbor, poultry is organic, meat is mostly grass fed and comes from local producers, dairy is from Clover. They use rice brain oil in fryer and olive oil with everything else. Be careful with the polenta, have not heard back from them on that as well as their sugar might be GMO as well.
Fish Restaurant - Sausalito, CA - Great place in Sausalito to get fresh fish. They said they do not use any GMO ingredients. They do use canola oil in the fryer, but it is certified organic. Sustainable seafood and lots of organic and local ingredients.
Nourish Restaurant - Mill Valley, CA - I am reluctantly putting this on the list. I went to this restaurant recently and the staff was very uninformed about what was organic and what wasn’t. It seemed like there was a lot that was not organic. They did say beef and chicken are 100% grass fed/organic and fish are wild caught. Use rice oil for cooking. They source produce as local “as possible” and are organic e.g. greens,cucumber, bell peppers. American/California cuisine. This restaurant just reopened in Jan 2012.
