I'm making reservations this week (two months in advance!) for dinners during our honeymoon to the Yountville/Sonoma area.
Our itinerary has us flying in from the east coast Monday morning, driving to Yountville, staying there Monday, and then driving to Healdsburg/staying there the rest of the week.
Our original dinner plan (yes, I love to eat ;)) has us going to Ad Hoc Monday night for the fried chicken, doing something low-key in Healdsburg Tuesday, Cyrus on Wednesday (once we're relaxed and not jet-lagged) and then playing it by ear the rest of the week.
However...now I'm starting to wonder if I will regret not eating at French Laundry on our trip west.
IF I can get reservations tomorrow (which I realize is a BIG IF) - should we do French Laundry that Monday over Cyrus that Wednesday?
I just worry that trying to cram in a multi-course, multi-hour meal the same day we arrive on the west coast might detract from the experience. (We are willing to splurge, so the difference in cost isn't so much a factor. Just want to make sure we get full enjoyment.)
