Left Bank outpost to open in Tiburon

The likely future home of Petite Left Bank is seen under construction at 1696 Tiburon Blvd., which sits at the corner of Juanita Lane (foreground), in downtown Tiburon. The restaurant, which applied for a permit on Sept. 14, would sit on the bottom floor, in the former New Morning Cafe site, with two residential units above. On Sept. 23, the Tiburon Design Review Board OK’d an outdoor kitchen and hot tub for the deck of the top-floor housing unit. (Elliot Karlan / For The Ark)

Left Bank restaurant is bringing its popular French cuisine to downtown Tiburon.

The restaurant group from Michelin-star chef Roland Passot plans to open Petite Left Bank, a scaled-down version of its well-known brasseries in Larkspur, Menlo Park and San Jose, to the Tiburon Boulevard space previously occupied by New Morning Cafe and Grass Shack ice cream parlor.

The restaurant is part of the ongoing redevelopment project at 1694-1696 Tiburon Blvd. Property owner ACV Argo Tiburon LP demolished the existing one-story building in 2019 to make way for a new 2½-story, 3,676-square-foot building with restaurant space on the ground floor at 1696 Tiburon Blvd. and two residential units above, which will be accessed off 3 Juanita Lane.
