I'm gonna be staying in Sonoma County for a week on vacation with my girlfriend. All I know the area has is great wine, the French Laundry, some great restaurants (Chez Panisse, Gary Danko) and authentic Vietnamese in San Fran. I spend whatever money I have on dining, which in this case would be a max. of two Danko, Panisse ($110 a personish) meals or one French Laundry meal at the upper end. That being said, I would also like to have a dining experience each day (prix fixe lunch, whatever) that will give me something I can't get in Charlottesville, VA. I should have access to a car, and am also open to any vineyard suggestions/dining/culinary excursions that you can come up with.
An overview of the area's restaurant districts, cusine types, favorite restaurants, price points, budget meals, ANYTHING about the area's culinary scene would be helpful to me. This is a once in a lifetime experience and I want to taste as much of the Bay Area's kickass food as I can.
