1. Copita Tequileria Y Comida 739 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965 (Marin)

Turns out the Golden Gate Bridge isn't just for tourists to gawk at after all. Get your ass over the beast now, and into Downtown Sausalito, where you'll find Copita, a Mexican restaurant and tequila bar. The owners pride themselves on serving up seasonal food and using fresh, local ingredients. No dish better represents this philosophy than their sublime guac that's made with a just-right portion of serrano chili that comes straight from the owners' personal garden.

2. Bar Bocce 1250 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA 94965

The latest addition to the Real Restaurants Group 13-territory empire (Bix, Betelnut, Zero Zero, etc.), BB is a Sausalito waterfronting pizza-slinger that seats 52, including 30 in the cedar-rich interior and 22 on a badass back patio that overlooks a pergola-covered firepit and a granite-sanded 55'x10' bocce ball court that's fully lit, so try not to take what it says too personally.
