Update on Restaurant Renovations: Paseo California Bistro and La Boulangerie

July 10, 2019

Coming Soon:  Paseo California Bistro
On May 15, 2019, the Mill Valley Zoning Administrator approved a Conditional Use Permit amendment application modifying the operating hours for 17 Throckmorton, home of the former El Paseo Restaurant.  In the spirit of honoring the past, but looking to the future, the refreshed restaurant will be called El Paseo California Bistro. Building off the past practices and mission of its predecessor, Paseo will provide Mill Valley with the unique opportunity of experiencing locally-sourced and naturally harvested California cuisine.  Under the use permit, proposed operating hours will be:  Monday through Friday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday: 9:00 am – 10:00 pm. The updated hours will accommodate weekly lunch and weekend brunch opportunity, while the proposed closing time will allow for an extra hour of public service.  The executive chef confirmed that the target opening is early fall 2019.

Coming Soon:  La Boulangerie
La Boulangerie Café will replace the former Gira Polli restaurant this Fall, after tenant improvements are completed. An amendment to the Conditional Use Permit will allow breakfast service beginning at 6:00 AM, followed by lunch and dinner. The remodel project, which began this week, will provide new signage, new building entries, windows, lighting, colors, and materials as well as access and parking lot improvements. In addition, a new wall and landscaping will be installed along E. Blithedale Ave. The City issued a building permit on July 1 for an estimated 14-week construction timeline.
