If you are looking for excellent Latin food that’s not your typical rice, beans and enchilada plate, you should try Marinitas in San Anselmo. If you’re looking for a great Latin bar, with top notch mixed drinks made from fresh fruit juices and cane sugar syrups, and a wide selection of Latin beers and micro-brewed Latin ales, Marinitas is also the place to go.
Although Marinitas is easy to get to, it’s also easy to pass by without noticing. At least that was my problem until a few friends who have been long-time patrons had a party catered by Marinitas. The food was great, so I finally sought it out and gave it a try. And, having done that, this happy camper now has Marinitas on my short list for high quality casual dinners out.
You can make your reservations on-line, and you definitely want to for Friday and Saturday nights. Unless, of course, you don’t mind squeezing in at the bar and killing anywhere from 20 – 30 minutes waiting for a table. Not to worry, though. If you’re hungry, they serve the full menu at the bar. Another very nice aspect to Marinitas is that it stays open until 11:00 on weeknights and 11:30 on Friday and Saturday, so you can have a long and leisurely evening out.
