The Tavern at Lark Creek in Larkspur suffered a kitchen fire early Saturday morning and is closed indefinitely.
The restaurant was hit with a two-alarm fire that was reported around 3am. The building, the historic Victorian Murphy House, dates back to 1888.
The Tavern at Lark Creek is the successor to the Lark Creek Inn, which was the first restaurant from the Lark Creek Restaurant Group. Today, that group has 14 properties across California and according to the website, is worth $50 million. The Tavern at Lark Creek is scheduled to celebrate its 25th anniversary this summer.
As with most restaurant fires, there is no timeline on the comeback yet. According to Lark Creek co-founder, president and CEO Michael Dellar, the damage is limited on the outside, but more extensive on the inside.
