We'll be visiting California from London in September. I've got my San Francisco eating agenda sorted (Nopa, State Bird, Zuni Cafe, etc), but we'll then be moving on to Healdsburg for a couple of nights. Looks like there's a lot of places to eat in the area, but are there any must-do's? As you can see from our SF list, we like informal places where a buzzy atmosphere and good food are priorities. Not particularly fussed about ethnicity of the food - Asian is as welcome as Mediterranean, American or anywhere else. A good wine list is a bonus (particularly as I hope to be celebrating my graduation as a Master of Wine while in Sonoma). Don't want anywhere really formal or pretentious.
Looking forward to reading your suggestions.
