Hello all! I'm a fellow CH from Seattle. My partner and I just booked a spur of the moment flight to Oakland for Friday, the 19th. We're not sure where we are staying exactly, but it will be somewhere in the Napa valley. I've already called and put myself on the waiting list for The French Laundry. However, I seriously doubt we'll make it in there.
So, I'd like to ask for other restaurant recommendations. What about Bouchon? Should we try that for lunch and somewhere else for dinner? Other thoughts?
