Restaurant recs in Yosemite (or on the way there from SF)

erinmargaret | Oct 2, 201610:35 AM     19

Hi,
I'm taking my boyfriend on a surprise trip to Yosemite in early November. We'll be stay in the Western part of the park. I hear that the Ahwanee isn't that great any more after the food service company changed (I think the name even changed too!). We may still do a drink there at it's such a breathtaking place, but I'd love some good food recommendations!

A poster from a year ago suggested the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort. Sounds great but I'd also love to hear about spots actually in the park, if any exist. It'll be my boyfriend's birthday so I'd like to take him somewhere nice for one meal. The rest of the time we'd welcome tasty affordable food, valuing flavor over fancy any day!

Also if there is a hidden gem on the way from San Francisco, I'd love to hear it. We will definitely be in the mood for some lunch along the way. Any favorite hidden spots in Livermore? Tracy?

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Erin
