Sometimes you just have to go to a diner.
This one has real wooden tables and ancient checkered linoleum floor tiles. A long counter with stools. One very special alcove with a big table crammed into it, where shady deals are surely hatched.
It is right here in toney Marin, as anachronistic as all-get-out and very, very busy.
I ordered biscuits and gravy. I've been systematically sampling the biscuits and gravy whenever I see it on menus in Marin, and I'm almost always disappointed.
Yesterday I was very happy. These biscuits and gravy come with two eggs, any style, on top of the biscuits and smothered with the sausage gravy. Mmmph!
I had been thinking about keeping this place all to myself, but I realize it fits perfectly with Chubbypanda's Save Our Faves meme. It's a chance to give proper props to places we'd hate to see go out of business.
You might not like this place, but I've described it well enough that you should be able to judge for yourself.
It's called Lundy's. It's on Fourth Street in downtown San Rafael.
