.Coho’s Felicia Ferguson

Felicia Ferguson is the co-owner of and newly-opened seafood restaurant, Coho, and long-standing Italian favorite, Piazza D’Angelo, both in Mill Valley.

What do you do?

I am part-owner to two restaurants in Mill Valley, and I am also mama to my amazing 3-year old daughter Emilia, which is a job in its own!

Where do you live? Mill Valley.

How long have you lived in Marin? I’m originally from Marin so have lived here off and on my

whole life. My husband and I moved from San Francisco to Mill Valley in 2016.

Where can we find you when you’re not at work?

During the week I am usually hiking around Mill Valley and on the weekends lunching at Hog

Island at the Marin Mart with friends and their kiddos.

If you had to convince someone how awesome Marin was, where would you take


The morning would start off with a croissant and cappuccino from Le Marais Bakery. Maybe a

hike through the neighborhoods up to Mayor’s Lookout or a drive out to Stinson Beach or Pt

Reyes. Picnic lunch from Lou’s Takeaway or a visit to the Farmer’s Market depending on the

day. Shopping around downtown Mill Valley. Oh and of course you can’t forget ending the day

with a nice plate of pasta and a spritz at Piazza D’Angelo on the terrace. Need I say more??

What’s the one thing Marin is missing?

Good Asian cuisine and a dim sum spot. I’m talking about Indonesian, Singaporean,

Vietnamese, regional Chinese (Sichuan, Hunan, Shanghainese…)

What’s one bit of advice you’d share with your fellow Marinites?

Be kind. It’s so easy to take all that we have for granted and we all should remind ourselves

how grateful we are to call Marin our home.

If you could invite anyone to a special dinner, whom would they be?

Barack Obama, Stanley Tucci, and all my family and friends.

What is some advice you wish you knew 20 years ago?

Don’t be afraid to have a voice and be comfortable with saying no.

What is something that in 20 years from now will seem cringeworthy?

Fast fashion.

Big question. What is one thing you’d do to change the world?

Conscious consumption – it amazes me how much food goes to waste and how many people

still go hungry. I definitely feel like something can be done about that.
