restaurants Reviewed by: James great food!
bahay kubo Reviewed by: Bong The food is good.
buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.
Asia Buffet Reviewed by: Edward From Fontana I like the dinner menu with the salted spicy shrimp with shell, the deep fried crab, baked mussels. The fried rice is tasty. Good value for the money.

About Bolinas

Bolinas, California is an unincorporated community in Marin County, California in the San Francisco Bay Area. The population of the Bolinas CDP (Census-designated place) was 1,246 at the 2000 census. Located along the coast and accessible only via sometimes unmarked roads, Bolinas is perhaps best known for its reclusive residents; historically, any road signs pointing the way into town on Highway One have invariably been torn down by local residents.

Bolinas and its reclusive reputation feature in the 1981 novel Ecotopia Emerging by Ernest Callenbach.

Geography

Bolinas is located at 37°54′8.85″N, 122°41′58.19″WGR1 on the California coast approximately 30 miles drive north from San Francisco just off California Hwy 1.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 3.6 km² (1.4 mi²), all land.

Bolinas and the Point Reyes Penninsula are on the Pacific Plate, moving north relative to Stinson Beach and the North American Plate at an average rate of about one inch per year.

    Literary scenes with strong affiliations to the New American Poetry were in evidence elsewhere in California -- most notably Bolinas in the 1970s, when that somewhat remote hippie village north of San Francisco became home to many poets. In particular, the transplanted easterner and Poetry Project veteran Bill Berkson and his press Big Sky flourished there in the decade, publishing both a magazine and a series of books. Bolinas residents of the period also included Robert Creeley, Bobbie Louise Hawkins, David Meltzer, Lewis Warsh, Tom Clark, Lewis MacAdams, Philip Whalen, Aram Saroyan, Joanne Kyger, Jim Carroll, and Duncan McNaughton, among others. Ted Berrigan, Alice Notley, and Joe Brainard were among many occasional visitors, with Joe Brainard's Bolinas Journal providing an interesting record of one such extended stay.
