Hedonism is alive and well at this transit hub turned gourmet emporium, where foodies happily miss their ferries over Sonoma oysters and bubbly, SF craft beer and Marin-raised beef burgers, and locally roasted coffee and just-baked cupcakes. Star chefs are frequently spotted at the farmers market that wraps around the building all year.
