So my fiance and I are getting married in about a month down in Mexico. We are flying up Monday evening and headed back to New York Thursday afternoon. He's a chef & I'm a somm, so needless to say meals are a big part. Additionally, we've been contemplating a move to SF to we also want to try and get a feel for things as well. Here's the plan:
Monday night we're staying at the St Regis (thank you Starwood points) and want to go out for one great dinner. Because of travel times we won't be able to get to dinner until 9pm at the earliest. We want to go somewhere great with a solid wine list and not too stuffy. We were gifted with reservations at French Laundry the next night so we are NOT looking for fine dining. Nopa, Flour + Water, Delfina or Cotogna were the spots we had narrowed it down to, but, we're open!
Tuesday morning we were going to drive to Tartine Bakery, wander around the Mission a bit and hit the road. We're planning to take the scenic route and stop at Muir Woods on the way up to Napa. Get to the hotel, have a massage and then head to our 7:30 French Laundry reservation!
Wednesday is all wineries. We haven't booked our visits yet, narrowing down where we want to go. We're not sure about lunch or dinner for this night yet? Gott's for lunch? Redd for dinner? We're totally open!
Thursday we'll drive back down. Plan is to go through San Francisco again and hit the farmers market on the way to the airport.
I know you all get one million requests for help with this stuff. If you had any suggestions or guidance it would be SO thoroughly appreciated!!
