Two of us had lunch yesterday at Ward Street Cafe in downtown Larkspur. We shared the warm avocado prawns (sautéed prawns, tomatoes, scallions, sticky rice, wine garlic sauce, $12.95) and coconut curry shrimp (house noodle, shitake mushrooms, baby bock choy, cilantro, $11.00). I'd call this creative comfort-food cooking at its best. My lunch partner is an excellent creative cook and in the food business; she thought it was as good as I did. The noodles were substantial, meaning you had to chew them, which I liked a lot. That dish had a Thai influence including some chilies. The very nice patio was empty on this cool day and the inside wasn't crowded. Do yourself (and the restaurant) a favor and try this place.
