Concept for Mina restaurant project: ‘Bohemian’ ‘beatnik poets bungalow’

Executive chef Michael Mina’s downtown Tiburon restaurant, slated to open in late summer, will have a “beatnik poets bayside bungalow retreat” theme, his restaurant group announced Nov. 14 at a packed hearing of the Tiburon Planning Commission. The commission, which was meeting to review the Mina Group’s operating permit for the former Guaymas Mexican restaurant site at 5 Main St., voted 4-0 to expand allowable operating hours to 7 a.m.-2 a.m. daily; reduce seating from 412 to 273; allow the installation of new open-air trellis structures with retractable awnings on the upper and lower outdoor patio areas; allow the installation of a new upper-floor bar; allow the installation of 157 small speakers for “soft, ambient music” on both levels, indoors and outdoors; and allow space for valet parking.
