Wine country special occasion meal advice

sportcat | Sep 15, 2013 12:22 PM

Hi Chowhounders,

We're going to Napa for two nights at the end of October and I'm looking for some advice on a restaurant for a tenth wedding anniversary dinner. I'm on the waitlist for FL, but not holding my breath, but that being said, my husband is not a fan of extensive tasting menus, but would happily make an exception for FL. We have a reservation for Medowood (three courses in the bar; I couldn't persuade him to do the nine course menu in the restaurant) the day before our anniversary and a lunch at Bouchon the day after, but we need a restaurant for the day itself. Really good food is the most important criteria, but also want it to be nice enough to wear a suit and not feel out of place. We went to AQ in SF last year on your recommendation and had a great time (and have returned there multiple times). Something a little along those lines would be great but I'm not sure it exists in the wine country. We'll have a car so anywhere in that area is possible.

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
