As promised around the new year, Manka’s chef-owners Margaret Grade and Daniel DeLong have finished their remodel of the restaurant at West Marin’s The Olema Inn and reopened it last week as The Olema, with a fresh and simple menu and informal setting. Urban Daddy grabbed a few photos, and Tablehopper adds a few menu details. Offerings focus on "things I’d like to eat," says Grade, and example menu items include fire-roasted crab, rotisserie chicken, and a vegetarian "bouillabaisse" made with garden vegetables. There are limited hours for now, just Thursday to Sunday, catering to those on the road returning from the beach. Later this year, they plan to reopen the nine rooms in the inn, as well.
