Mill Valley Restaurant Rally
It’s been a long year of road construction in downtown Mill Valley — just ask anyone who’s battled the traffic. Construction took an especially hard toll on the town’s restaurants which suffered as people avoided the chaos.
But now, rehabilitation projects, street paving, sidewalk and sewer improvements along East Blithedale, Miller Avenue and Throckmorton are finished — and downtown restaurants are celebrating with the Downtown Mill Valley Restaurant Rally.
The week-long Downtown Mill Valley Restaurant Rally sees seven of downtown’s favorite restaurants offering three- and four-course prix fixe menus for $55-$60. Every night of the rally, one restaurant will also offer a Willy Wonka-style “golden ticket” with a $50 gift card toward each participating restaurant (a $350 value). A few will also offer a specialty cocktail for $8.
