Being progressive and ahead of the curve is baked into San Francisco's identity. On the culinary front, consider the sushi burrito or the unlikely Irish-Indian fusion spot that is Kennedy's in North Beach. But it turns out we're just trying to catch up with Sausalito — specifically Avatar's Restaurant. This place, self-described as a purveyor of "ethnic confusion," is the OG of food fusions. Since 1989 the diner has combined Mexican and Californian specialties with Indian spices and curries, yielding results like the signature curried pumpkin enchiladas. Try to save room for dessert: The only thing on the menu, Avatar's Dream, will send you to chocolate heaven. Sausalito, we see you.


An Indian-Mexican-Californian (and also and a little Jamaican) fusion restaurant.
Vegan and vegetarian dishes, gluten-free samosas, oil-free and carb-free preparations — pretty much everyone can eat here.
