Try bollito misto, porchetta at Poggio 

In winter, exuberant Italophile Poggio chef Peter McNee prepares two regional specialties at family-friendly prices that make the short trip over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito mandatory.
The bollito misto cart will roll into the dining room Feb. 2-6, carrying five tender, slowly boiled meats right to your table. He slices off big hunks of beef brisket, tongue, oxtails, capon and house-made cotechino sausage and spoons out traditional sauces: herbal salsa verde; a rosso of roasted red peppers; and sweet-hot mostarda di cremona, fruits preserved in mustard oil, all for $19. I look forward to this meal all year.

Every Monday, McNee roasts a small milk-fed pig from Devil’s Gulch Ranch for four hours over oak wood on the rotisserie. Stuffed with rosemary sausage, the moist, aromatic porchetta comes with creamy butter beans cooked on the floor of the rotisserie to catch the pork drippings. This evocative Monday evening plate costs $16, and you can wash it down with a quarto of Chianti for $7.50.
