I am trying to plan a nice dinner in March for about 10 family members to celebrate my wedding earlier that day. It's a mixed group, ranging from plain tastes to hardcore foodies. One person can't eat any seafood, and several will be opposed to ethnic food. Ideally, the food would approach the quality of Manresa, French Laundry, Meadowood, etc, but for the above reasons a tasting menu cannot be the only option.
I was thinking that Boulevard or Gary Danko might be good choices, but I would greatly appreciate any suggestions that you may have. We will also be spending a night in Napa, so similar recommendations in that area would be great too.
