The Bump Bar Dinner Series

Chef Lance Dillard's 10-course menu is a testament to his artistry and reverence for Japanese cuisine. Designed to be savored with chopsticks, each dish embodies elegance and sophistication. Seafood and vegetables take center stage, celebrating the bounties of the ocean and the earth in perfect harmony, paired with our caviar.

Embark on a culinary journey guided by Chef Lance Dillard, whose passion for Japanese cuisine ignited at a young age. Lance's culinary odyssey commenced in 1979, when he was merely 8 years old, frequenting Samurai in Solana Beach with his family. Those evenings immersed in sushi and Japanese delicacies sowed the seeds of a lifelong devotion to the art of Japanese cooking.

Under the tutelage of esteemed mentors like Masayuki Murata, Lance honed his skills, eventually ascending to the role of Executive Chef at Hokusei in Portland, Oregon. His culinary prowess further flourished during his tenure with the prestigious Mina Group, where he worked closely with culinary luminaries such as Chef Michael Mina. Lance also contributed his expertise to the renowned Michelin-starred establishment, Madcap, under the guidance of Chef Ron Siegel.

With an illustrious career spanning over 34 years, Lance draws inspiration from the world around him, finding beauty in the rhythms of nature, the stroke of a brush on canvas, and the ever-changing seasons. Marin County, with its breathtaking coastline, fertile farmlands, and majestic mountains, serves as a constant muse, infusing his creations with a profound connection to the land and sea.

Bumps & Bubbles

Indulge in a celebration of sustainable premium caviar at our tasting room, The Bump Bar by California Caviar Company, located in downtown Sausalito. Our chef driven seafood centric menu highlights caviar and roe alongside our regional beverage pairings.

At The Bump Bar, we believe that enjoying caviar should be a fun, educational, and elevated experience. To round out your experience, our wine offerings highlight Old and New World selections, with an emphasis on bubbles and wines made with grape varietals from Champagne.

If there’s a caviar or roe that stood out during your meal, you can purchase a tin to indulge with at home.

Sample Menus


“The Bump Bar is playfully named for the way you can order the eggs by the gram and is based on the way caviar is purchased and graded in the industry. When inspecting a tin, buyers put a little mound on their hands to visually inspect the eggs and warm it up for the tasting."
