Spring Tracking: Humphrey's Murray Circle Delayed a Bit

Originally slated for a May 1st debut, the entire Cavallo Point development—including its restaurant Murray Circle and neighboring bar Farley, named after late cartoonist Phil Frank—has been pushed back a month to June 1st. The entire complex, literally a hop across the Golden Gate Bridge, is still under construction and closed to the public. However, Joseph Humphrey, last seen accepting two Michelin stars at Meadowood, has revealed his menu, and looking at the sample online, it's a locavore dandy. In addition to a la carte dishes (listed first by main ingredient and its source, then by preparation), there are two tasting menus: a five-course chef's menu ($95) and a veggie version ($75). The entire dinner menu, as it currently stands, follows:

Fish & Shellfish
Dungeness Crab, Fort Bragg:
Sunflower Seeds, Vanilla, Asian Pear, Jalapeno $15
