Garlic Truffle Fries @ Nick’s Cove in Marshall

Where to go for the best french fries in West Marin.

There’s an art to making fries. They have to be salty enough, but not overwhelming. Creamy on the inside and tantalizingly crisp on the outside. Never bland, dry, greasy or soggy.

Two restaurants in West Marin have fries that transcend side kick status.

Truffle Garlic Fries at Nick’s Cove

With so many tempting dishes on Nick’s menu, you might not pay particular attention to their truffle fries, but now that you know better, you won’t make that mistake.

Portions in general at Nick’s are beyond generous. My favorite weekday lunch with friend is one order of truffle garlic fries, a ceasar salad and a dozen raw oysters—all to share.

If you’re getting a burger, you can ask them to upgrade the regular fries that come with it to truffle fries. It’s extravagantly delicious.

House cut fries at the Tap Room

Sure, you could order salad with the iconic house smoked West Marin Reuben, but why? The Tap Room manages to strike the perfect salt balance, getting that longed for crispy exterior while maintaining a creamy, piping hot center. Addictive!

Now you know.

Enjoy Pt Reyes
