Special Restaurant Dinners - Winemaker Dinners

Bob Copeland | Jan 17, 2007 03:45 PM

Can anyone suggest restaurants who have periodic special dinners/winemaker dinners to which I could take guests?

I hoping for a resultant that seats 24 - 36 or so in a well-appointed setting for straight forward well-prepared food that is not overly fussy.
My party would comprise perhaps 4-6 of the total. I have found that oftentimes the food at such events is more overworked and interesting than good.

My preference is for tasty bistro/trattoria style food rather than haute cuisine.

I suppose that the daily dinners at Chez Panisse might be a good model for what I am looking for, but do any other places come to mind?
First choice is San Francisco but would consider other places as well. I haven't been to Oliveto's Head to Tail (?) dinner but think I would prefer something of that caliber but perhaps with the food items being more mainstream.

Thanks for sharing your experiences.
