Our name was inspired by the Litchfield's Bermuda Palms resort motel in San Rafael, which was built by Irving "Whitey" Litchfield in the 1940's. In its day, the Palms was a legend, everyone from rock stars to Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack to Richard Nixon could cross paths at Litchfield's. Though the property has changed over the years, the famous "Litchfield's" sign remains lighted to this day.

Proprietor Charlie Litchfield opened the restaurant to the public in April, 2017. You'll often find Charlie helping in the kitchen or serving in the restaurant, always maintaining an active role in the operation of Litchfield's.

A Sampling of Our Dishes

Some of our favorite dishes from the past year. If they're not on the menu now, they'll be back when the ingredients come into season.

Squid and pork belly

Fall Burrata Salad


This Fall-themed salad incorporates the hearty bitterness of raddichio, the sweet flavors of kiwi and pomegranate, the herbal freshness of mint, and delicate creaminess of burrata with a savory vinaigrette for a unique and delectable salad.

King Salmon

Halibut with Roasted Fennel


This winter dish derives its flavor from a garlic cream sauce that blends well with the soft flesh of the halibut fish and the mildly sweet, anise flavor of fennel. A crispy pan-roasted halibut skin tops this delightful and fresh entree.

Trumpet Mushroom



Chef Ivan's take on this Italian classic uses berebere, a traditional Ethiopian spice, to provide a slight spiciness. Local musscles, prawns, and rock cod round out this tomato-based dish.

Squid and pork belly

Squid & Pork Belly Salad


The inherent saltiness of the squid is complimented well by the umami of the roasted pork belly. Adding arugula and mustard seed vinaigrette adds a spicy nuance that brings the dish together. [Not currently in season]

King Salmon

King Salmon with Pesto


Wild King Salmon fished fresh from Half Moon Bay, pan-seared and placed on a bed of wild rice risotto. The pesto seasoning with basil fresh from our garden provides a light but richly flavored seasoning to compliment the salmon filet. [Not currently in season]

Trumpet Mushroom

Wild Mushroom on Celery Root Fondue


Forraged straight from our 60 acre property, trumpet mushrooms start to dot our hills in mid-Spring. Served on a bed of celery root fondue and paired with arugula and shaved parmesan for a delicious vegetarian treat. [Not currently in season]
