The girlfriend and I are taking a trip down to California in early March, to relax, eat good food, and see the sights. I've been down your way a couple times, and last time I had one of the best meals of my life at Commis. I was all excited to repeat the experience and share it with the girlfriend, but it turns out they're closed the two days we'll be in town! Argh!
There's a chance we might change our plans to make a trip to Commis possible, but if not: do you kind folks have any very similar restaurant suggestions for us? Location is not a tremendously big concern, so Oakland, San Francisco, Napa, and Senoma are all in play. A similar feel (modern but not yet all the way to molecular gastronomy, price fixe where you pick 3-6 items from a menu, etc.), great food, but open on Monday or Tuesday?
