Celebrate Dungeness Crab Fête at Petite!

Nestled in the charming town of Tiburon, with its picturesque views and nautical vibes, Petite Left Bank invites you to a culinary celebration that captures the essence of Bay Area seafood traditions. As the Dungeness crab season sweeps through Northern California, bringing with it the promise of fresh, flavorful bounty from the sea, we are thrilled to present our Dungeness Crab Fête. This special event, running throughout February and March, showcases the beloved Dungeness crab in a celebration of taste, tradition, and the treasures of our local waters.

The Crown Jewel of the Bay: Dungeness Crab

The Dungeness crab, with its rich, buttery flavor and tender texture, is more than just a seafood; it's a cultural icon of the Bay Area and a testament to the sustainable bounty of our Pacific waters. Harvested with care to ensure sustainability and the health of marine ecosystems, Dungeness crab plays a pivotal role in the local economy and culinary scene, symbolizing both a livelihood for fishermen and a centerpiece for family and community gatherings.

With a season that typically spans from late fall to early spring, the arrival of Dungeness crab is eagerly anticipated by chefs and food lovers alike, marking a time of year when the freshest, most delectable crabs grace our tables, bringing with them the flavors of the ocean and the joy of shared culinary experiences.

A Feast of Flavors: Our Dungeness Crab Specialties

At Petite Left Bank, we are honoring the Dungeness crab with two exquisite dishes that embody the spirit of French seaside cuisine while celebrating the unique tastes of our local environment. Priced at $42, our classic Bouillabaisse is a luxurious seafood stew that marries the succulent flesh of Dungeness crab with mussels and rock fish, all simmered to perfection in a saffron-infused broth. This dish is a love letter to the sea, inviting diners to immerse themselves in a rich tapestry of flavors that evoke the essence of coastal France.

For those seeking a lighter, yet equally flavorful option, our Dungeness Crab Salad at $24 is a vibrant composition of arugula, avocado, Cara Cara orange, and pickled fennel, crowned with generous chunks of fresh Dungeness crab. This salad is a celebration of freshness and simplicity, allowing the natural sweetness of the crab to shine against a backdrop of crisp, zesty ingredients.
