Passage from Tom Blake’s Prime Rib & Boxcars: Whatever Happened to Victoria Station?
Why build in Marin? The demographics were impressive; it was one of the wealthiest counties in America. But a more likely reason was that the Bradleys and the Freemans had moved to central Marin, not more than 10 minutes from the site. And they and their families needed a nearby place to eat. The Bradleys had bought a home with a pool and a tennis court in Ross, one of the most affluent communities in affluent Marin. Not to be outdone, Bob and Sharon sold their Sausalito home (the one Mukluk had visited), and they built a magnificent home in Kentfield, just a mile from the site we picked eventually for the restaurant. The Freemans had a kidney-shaped pool with a waterfall, and, of course, a tennis court. For the two couples, having a VS so close was like having your own country club, only in the form of a restaurant.
