I've been dying to get up to Nick's Cove in Pt. Reyes for almost 3 years now so I jumped at the chance to make the drive with my sister and her bf this month.
After a bit of hiking and beach exploring in the state parks, this dreamy place did not disappoint.
Hmmm...what to order, what.to.order...
How about their token dish of BBQ oysters? Oh. My. Yum.
Eh what the heck, throw in a dozen of their regular oysters, too. (For the record, I don't know who in the course of human history first cracked one of these bad boys open and thought "well this slimy blob looks delicious! I shall slurp it down with a hint of lemon." but I'd like to shake his hand.)
We didn't want to make the other shellfish jealous, so we also got the mussels....
....and the clam chowder....
...and the crab macaroni and cheese, which nearly made me cry it was so damn good...
If you ever have a free weekend in the Bay Area I HIGHLY recommend heading up to Pt. Reyes and Tomales Bay to check out the sights as well as this restaurant.
I can't wait to go back!
