Tiburon: Foodniks - John Snell's (The Meetinghouse) food to go

Located in The Cove Shopping Center next to Sweet Things Bakery, this is mainly a take-out serving sandwiches, soups and hot entrees from a steam table .,.. but don't get the wrong idea ... It's not a supermarket deli.

There is a printed monthly menu with six dishes that will be available that day. New Year's Eve the menu included
- Dungeness crab cakes
- Eggplant and tomato tart
- Truffled mashed potatoes
- Roasted rack of lamb
- Liberty Duck Breast
- Herbed Salmon Fillets

There are alos fresh-frozen entrées, casseroles and hors d’oeuvres to take home, ready to bake and serve.

There are a few shelves specialty groceries. The bread is by Panorama or La Brea. A back counter with baked goods offers the breads by the loaf. The coffee is by San Rafael roaster La Coppa. The website says they try to use local products whenever possible.

There are two large picnic type of tables inside for those who want to eat there.

The day I stopped by I had the butternut squash soup which was very good. It was made with a rich stock and had a deep sweet squash flavor. Three other soups were also availale.

John Bryant Snell is the Executive Chef and Owner. According to the bio on the website he worked " first with Bradley Ogden, then with Heidi Krahling, eventually opening The Meetinghouse restaurant with former CIA classmate Joanna Karlinsky"

This was my first visit. Any locals more familiar with the food. It seems good.
