Fresh produce, eggs, and chicken from local farms and gardens and upgraded comfort food is what you’ll find at Marinade on Main, a country bistro located in Ramona’s historic downtown.

Chef-owners Jessica and Travis Tan and their dedicated staff bring smiles to their patrons, who return time and again for the outstanding service, seasonal fare, and regional wine selections.

Baked Cinnamon French Toast

This baked French toast entrée is so perfect, not a drop of maple syrup is needed. Thick-sliced bread is dipped in eggs and spices, then baked and topped with homemade streusel, crème anglaise, and candied walnuts.

Winter Quinoa Salad

Flavors and textures blend beautifully in a winter salad representing the bounty of regional farms. The salad combines grilled cauliflower, shredded beets, baby heirloom tomatoes, arugula, almonds, and quinoa, with a jalapeño vinaigrette dressing that gives it an extra kick.

Herb-Fried Chicken

It's quite possible you've never had fried chicken this good. A house favorite since 2016, chicken is brined and slow cooked in a sous-vide water bath with fresh herbs and lemon, then coated in buttermilk and special seasonings and lightly fried. Served alongside smashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables, this crunchy and juicy chicken will keep you coming back for more.
