This is my first time on this particular CH board! I have been to SF before and eaten at some good restaurants, but most of this 6-day trip--just booked today for early June--will be spent outside the city, probably Healdsburg. DH and I are frazzled and in need of a restorative and chowish vacation.
I realize it might be too late to try to book tables at really good restaurants in the area (Zuni, Chez Panisse), but we are willing to do lunch/unfashionable times if there is any chance at all of hitting one of these (have not yet been). Or are they overrated anyway?! I love cookbooks from both places but have not had many first-hand reports.
But do any of you have recs for other places, especially in the Sonoma valley area? We eat everything, will have a car and generally plan our travels around meals, but this is a spur of the moment thing and I have not yet been able to do my homework properly.
Many thanks in advance for any guidance you might be able to provide.
