Help me with my choices in SF and Napa

mrsjoujou | Mar 25, 2014 11:55 AM

We will be in SF early April and have two dinners and two lunches. Last time we dined at SPQR, Barbacco, Atelier Crenn and Commonwealth.
This time I have reservations for Verbena and AQ for dinner and Bar Tartine for brunch. I know AQ just changed their menu format and wonder if anyone have tried their new menu? I like creative food that tastes good and looked at Stone's Throw (a little far from Vitale), Central Kitchen, Outerlands (chef change), 1760 and Nico. Aveline looks interesting, but they are not open yet. So what do you think? Should I stick with my choices or change AQ for something else?

What is a must order at B. Patisserie besides the Kouign Amann?
Same question with Craftsman and Wolves?

We are staying in Downtown Napa and I really tried to find something interesting and creative, but I didn't come up with anything I was looking for. It seems like most of the Napa restaurants are on the rustic side. Right now I have reservations for Angele and Redd for our two dinners. I also looked into Jole, Farmstead, Torc, Napkins, LuLu's Kitchen at 1313, Goose and Gander, Étoile and Auberge du Soleil (my uncle recommended).
I need two breakfast places and since we are staying close to Oxbow Market, Model bakery would be one of the choices. As far as French bakeries is Bouchon the best we can do?
Is Frati gelato any good?

I appreciate any help and thank you for reading.
