A smooth start for ‘slow streets’ in downtown Tiburon

Tiburon’s Main Street was transformed into a car-free outdoor dining space over the weekend, the first in the town’s summer-long “slow street” initiative. There were lines for both the gelato counter at Servino Ristorante and the ice cream line at The Candy Shoppe and, at times, lines to get into Sam’s Anchor Cafe, where people wanted to get an outside table on the back deck. The street closed down between Fountain Plaza and the traffic circle near the entrance to the Main Street Parking Lot starting Friday afternoon through 8 p.m. Sunday. Throughout the weekend, diners enjoyed meals outside the street’s restaurants, including at Luna Blu, Waypoint Pizza, Caffe Acri and Salt & Pepper. (Elliot Karlan photo / For The Ark)
