Where should I eat dinner on July 4?

Originally posted on "not about food;" I hope this is enough about food to merit posting here, thanks for everyone's forbearance.

Wife and I will be spending a few days in northern wine country preceding July 4. We have a redeye flight out of Oakland 10:00 p.m. July 4. The general issue of where to eat dinner is up for consideration. Many places closed on Sunday, even more are closed that particular Sunday because of
the holiday. I continue my calls trying to decide where to go.

Specific question for now: Don't know what if any holiday fireworks etc. happen over the bay; and/or if there will be any problems crossing the Bay Bridge in the neighborhood of 8:00 p.m. if you were in this situation, would you be
willing to cross into the City for dinner or would you stick to the East side of the Bay?

Any recent out of the ordinary faves that you're dying to post about? Thanks all.
