Three nights looking forward to good californa food and wine. Love to eat, drink, be outside. I have never stayed in this particular area of wine country though I have tasted here in the past. I would be very interested in recommendations for reastaurants, wineries and grocery stores. I will definitely be cooking too. Lunch, dnner, bfast, no matter, open to all. I prefer trying new places.
French Laundry(love it)
Bouchon(eh, not so impressed, ate something gritty)
Auberge de soliel(yuck total resort/wedding food)
Tra Vigne(eh, chainy. One good meal a long time ago)
Mustards Grill(eh, chainy too)
Pilar(eh, expected better flavor, was lunch tho about three weeks into their opening)
John Ash & Co.(lunch only, wasnt impressed)
Julia's Kitchen at COPIA(I really wanted to love this place but can't even remeber what I had)
Willi's Wine Bar(nice lunch outside, mmm moroccan roasted carrots!)
I think I have been to some other places too that I cant reember-Trilogy or Meritage or something like that.
Places of interest to me, please do comment:
generals daughter(ate here a years ago hear they have new chef since last year?)
On the wineries side, I am far less opinionated and just want to try some newer, more unusual ones near where I will be staying, Windsor.
