Welcome to Tiburon!

Petite Left Bank 


Vine Hospitality is proud to announce the late September opening of their newest restaurant venture, Petite Left Bank in Tiburon, a “petite” French spinoff of the group’s local and longstanding Left Bank Brasserie concept. Arcsine, the award-winning Oakland-based architecture and interior design firm, designed the space, in continuation of their long-standing relationship with the restaurant group.



Petite Left Bank is a traditional French café and bistro located in the charming downtown area of the coastal Tiburon peninsula at 1696 Tiburon Boulevard. Like its sister restaurant Left Bank Brasserie, Petite Left Bank is named in homage to La Rive Gauche, the southern or “left bank” of the River Seine which winds its way through the center of Paris. It is the site of many wonderful and famous brasseries which evoke a bygone era of artists, writers, and philosophers who shaped the bohemian culture of the time. Petite Left Bank is inspired by these iconic brasseries, and the design relies heavily on classic bistro elements with a modern, coastal California twist. Petite Left Bank is a modern and approachable setting, combined with the allure and excitement from a lively café and bistro. Whether grabbing an espresso and pastry in the morning, a glass of wine at the bar or on the patio, celebrating with a meal of French favorites, or picking up a roasted chicken dinner or picnic pack to go, Petite Left Bank is a fun and lively concept designed for locals and visitors alike. It will be open initially for dinner daily from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., and then subsequently for lunch, morning café service and weekend brunch including takeout and catering with pickup and delivery services.

“We are excited to bring a new approach to French cuisine to Tiburon,” says Obadiah Ostergard, Chief Executive Officer of Vine Hospitality, which also operates the Left Bank Brasserie, LB Steak, and Meso Modern Mediterranean restaurants. “Petite Left Bank is a modern, vibrant French café and bistro that transports our guests from quaint Tiburon across the Atlantic to the heart of Paris with authentic ambiance and aesthetics, and of course, delicious French fare and drink.”   FULL ARTICLE

Groundbreaking Celebration

Groundbreaking celebration for the Heritage & Arts

Portuguese Dairy Mural Wall Project.

Did you know that before Tiburon had the railroad, Tiburon had dairies? In the early years the dairies were operated by Portuguese Azorean immigrant families, who were an important part of the early Tiburon community. Renowned artist, João De Brito, well- known for his use of vibrant colors that elicit light, life, energy and interpretive landscapes has been commissioned to create a wall mural at the retaining wall adjacent to the Tiburon Bike Path for beautification, identified as the “Old Rail Trail mural”. There are almost no physical reminders left that acknowledges the significance of those dairies and the contributions made by those who worked there - as we would all agree, it is an important history which is in danger of being forgotten.

Get Ready to Vote TIBURON!

On November 8th the Town of Tiburon residents will elect three (3) Town Council members. The individuals elected will serve full 4-year terms, until November 2026. Below are the candidate statements.

Alice Fredericks

Occupation: Councilmember, Town of Tiburon

Priorities are securing Tiburon’s open space, continued prudent fiscal management, restoration of local control of housing and all land use decisions, support for cost efficient recreation activities, mitigation of climate change impacts including reasonable efforts to electrify and to fund infrastructure for EV charging stations and sea level rise protection.

Although my formal education includes a Ph.D. in Behavioral Medicine and a Law degree, the most relevant experience is my 20 years on the Town of Tiburon Council working with collegial productive councils and engaged community members. I have worked as a research psychologist at UCSF, served as an extern at the California Supreme Court and am an inactive member of the State Bar. Experience includes service on the Tiburon Planning Commission, Transportation Authority of Marin Commission, Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District Board, and as a State Director of the League of California Cities. Currently Chair of Marin County Council of Mayor and Councilmembers Legislative Committee, I work for protection from the state legislature’s overreach into local fiscal and land use authority. If re-elected to serve our community, I will continue to bring a broad perspective and continuity to the Council while welcoming new ideas. Questions?

Isaac Nikfar

Occupation: Vice Chair, Tiburon Parks, Open Space & Trails Commission; Strategic Advisor, Technology Business Development & Consulting

Our family was drawn to Tiburon’s beautiful Open Space, excellent schools and safe community. After 11 years, 3 children (one at Redwood High School and two in the Reed Union School District), I am ready to give back even more to my community. As former Chair (current Vice-Chair) of the Tiburon Parks, Open Space and Trails Commission, I’ve spent five years working hard to preserve Tiburon’s Open Space and improve our Parks. During COVID-19, I ensured our residents could use our Parks and Open Spaces, as they became critical to improve our quality of life. I recently worked to revitalize Greenwood Beach, ensure toxic chemicals are not sprayed in our parks and picnic areas, and supported the acquisition of more open space.

I volunteer as Athletic Director at St. Hilary CYO (one of the most successful Basketball and Volleyball programs in Marin) and provided scholarships to families in need. Also, served as Championship Youth Coach in Little League, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, and Lacrosse.

I support preserving Tiburon’s unique character, reducing traffic, keeping Tiburon fiscally sound, protecting the environment, combating climate change, ensuring emergency preparedness, revitalizing downtown and bringing back family friendly events, including Friday Nights on Main. I respectfully ask for your vote.

As your Mayor and Councilmember, I am working hard to preserve the many things that make Tiburon such a wonderful community. All of the things that make our Town special—the natural beauty and open space, the village atmosphere and community gatherings, the civility and thoughtfulness with which we treat each other—all of these things require our continual effort to preserve and grow.

My wife and I have lived in Tiburon for nearly 20 years, and we have raised our three children in this beautiful community. I am deeply honored to have served on the Town Council over the last five years, and previously on the Planning Commission for over six years.

We have achieved a great deal. Our downtown is thriving and growing—with exciting new restaurants and stores opening for us to enjoy. Our amazing new library is opening soon. Our budget is balanced and our reserves are healthy. We are taking innovative steps to address critical issues like climate change. And we have launched an important diversity and inclusion initiative to ensure our community is open and welcoming to all.I am eager to continue this important work. I would be honored to have your vote.
