Art's Cafe, Perle Wine Bar, Marin Joe's (Episode #1321H)

KQED 9: Sat, Dec 1, 2018 -- 12:00 PM

Check, Please! Bay Area KIDS Special: This year marks the 30th anniversary for Art's Cafe, a San Francisco breakfast institution. Our first guest loves sitting at the counter at the tiny diner known for their signature hash brown sandwiches and Korean bibimbap bowls. Then, featuring dishes like Russian caviar and beef tartare, Perle Wine Bar in Oakland's Montclair Village is a surprisingly sophisticated pick for a ten-year old. Finally, long before "mid-century modern" became hip, Marin Joe's has been popular with locals craving Italian American comfort food in Corte Madera, and the jiu-jitsu loving kid who's been going there since he was a baby.
