Hello SF Hounds,
A friend and her significant are going to SF and Sonoma in April and asked for restaurant recs. As I haven't been out your way in many years, I turn to you for help.
Their itinerary is fly into SF and spend one day and overnight then drive up to Sonoma and spend two days then drive back and spend a couple of more days in SF. Both are reasonable adventurous and have no food allergies. They would like to have one or two very swanky experiences (one in SF and one in Sonoma), but for the rest of it they are open. Suggestions for can't miss places for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, dessert are all appreciated. San Fransisco, Wine Country and anywhere on the way up and back that they should stop.
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
p.s. - when I last visited the area I was staying with a friend in San Rafael and she took me to a place called Casa Manana that was memorable. Is it still around?
