I know, this is gonna be really general, but hubby and I are going to San Francisco and Santa Rosa (also Napa&Sonoma) for about a week. Haven't been in town for a few years and would love to get some meal recs -- we'll have a few upscale meals, but also would like moderate choices. We love non-touristy/off-beaten path type of places. We're staying near Union Square and then onto Santa Rosa (we'll have a car and will be traveling all over wine country -- any winery suggetions would also be appreciated).
Not huge fans of Thai or Indian. We dine on lots of sushi here so probably no on Japanese food.
Love Italian, Chinese, Mex, "Calif cuisine." Oh, we also love a good bowl of chowder, but never know where to go. Many thanks in advance and if you're ever in L.A., (or Silverlake/Los Feliz) will return the favor in spades! Thanks!
