“Welcome to Dining on a Rickety Dry-Rot Pier,” says Dining on a Dime host Lucas Peterson, who in this episode, has headed north to the Tomales Bay, about a 90-minute drive outside of San Francisco. His destination? The pier of the Marshall Store, a tiny family-owned restaurant and general store perched directly on the bay and right off of Highway 1. The Marshall Store offers up great views, and even better plates of the briny, saltwater mollusks loved by many.
The menu features oysters cooked a number of different ways (in addition to raw, naturally), including with house-made chorizo and Rockefeller-style, baked with butter, spinach, and cheese.
Check out the full video above to see Peterson escape from the city with a mini-road trip along the gorgeous California coast, to try out a few plates of these famously delicious oysters.
