MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Set sail aboard the Sausalito ferry for dinner at this Mexican smash hit that is located just steps from the harbor’s bobbing yachts. Colorful and casual, Copita’s most coveted seats are on the sidewalk patio (complete with partial views of the water and quaint downtown), but a spot at the exceptionally well-stocked tequila bar or in the brightly tiled dining room is no disappointment. A light meal of tacos could include seared mahi mahi with pineapple pico de gallo and tomatillo salsa or tomato-accented chicken tinga with avocado and Mexican crema. Options abound for heartier appetites, like 24-hour carnitas and chicken mole enchiladas. And the lively surrounds are a hit with kids, who love sipping on the sweet house-made horchata.
