Reco's for Napa (the town) and SF in September?

italophile | Jul 14, 2009 11:45 AM

Hi all, I'm a Chicago-by-way-of-Boston hound, hoping you can recommend some places for my upcoming trip (9/1-9/7) out west.

We are in Napa valley for the first part of our trip, in the city for the weekend. Currently, our only confirmed dinners are these:
- Girl and the fig
- Bouchon
- Bottega

What I'd like to learn more about are:
1. A great place w/ a view for lunch in Sausalito (we'll be stopping on our way up to Napa)
2. Somewhere in the town of Napa - we are staying in the city and would love to walk and explore on our first night there
3. A Friday and Saturday night option in SF.
4. A dim sum option

We like almost everything - Italian, Japanese/Sushi, Greek, Middle Eastern, French, Chinese, American, Spanish, etc. My husband isn't crazy about Indian or Vietnamese, but he's a good sport and can be convinced!

We haven't booked our hotel yet, but thinking Union Square or Nob Hill - we're not afraid of walking or public transportation, though want to eat IN the city. Price range, isn't totally an issue, but nothing like TFL please.

If anyone is familiar w/ Chicago or Boston restaurants, we love places like Avec, The Bristol, Mia Francesca, Perennial in Chicago, and our faves were Toro, Stella, Via Matta, Excelsior in Boston.

Thank you in advance!
