Undecided/unsure on a few things for next month’s trip to wine country & San Francisco and am hoping some opinions from local ‘hounds will help me finalize the last few details.
1. Will be leaving SFO on a Thursday am to Napa via 101 to Bay bridge. Found some cafés/diners suggested for breakfast on chow if we decide on a sit-down but is there a great place for coffee around SFO/en route? Bonus if it’s got some pastries or the like we can grab to munch on on our way.
2. We have 9pm dinner reservations at the French Laundry that Thursday. Don’t want to overdo it at lunch and some suggestions I’ve read have been to graze at Oxbow market but am thinking we’d like to do a casual lunch early afternoon. Landed on Boon Fly Café and Grace’s Table – any thoughts?
3. We’ll be driving from Healdsburg to SF on Saturday with a stop in Santa Rosa at the Russian River brewpub. Looking for a good lunch idea in Santa Rosa. Thoughts on Sobbit Goa or Dierk’s Parkside Café? Would rather not eat at the pub unless someone thinks it’s decent enough for lunch.
4. Have 3 dinners booked in SF. Was aiming for a more relaxed/casual atmosphere with good food after The French Laundry and Cyrus in wine country. Booked Flour+Water, Bar Tartine & AQ. Curious about Aziza though. Would you bump one of these for Aziza?
Any thoughts are much appreciated!
