@ jaiko - Oh No! I will have to look into this further! How did Boulevard win the James Beard award for Outstanding Restaurant for 2012?
Thanks. Any breakfast suggestions in St Helena or lunch suggestions in Napa?
I'm heading to San Fran and Napa in mid-Sept. and can't wait! I'll be traveling with my roommate who is a chef here in NYC. We are both HUGE foodies - NO HOLDS BAR - we will try everything from food trucks, to tasting menus. We would love to find local spots and see none tourist things in SF. The plan is as follows:
Grab a Go Car for a 2-3ish hour tour around all of SF. Just to see the sights and decide where we want to spend more time when we return to SF later in the week.
Dinner at Oriental Pearl for Peking Duck.
Arrive in Napa mid-afternoon, looking to find a vineyard with no reservation needed.
Dinner suggestion needed for St. Helena area. Looking for moderate price entrees $15-25 each. Is Rotisserie & Wine, any good?
Vineyard tours in the morning. (Cakebread, Mumm, Caymus)
Lunch at Mustard Grill in Yountville.
More vineyards after lunch Domaine Chandon, Milat and full tour at Del Dotto.
Dinner suggestions??? Could be a little more expensive would be willing to do a tasting menu or pre-fixe if there are any suggestions. Especially if places specialize in pairings.
Looking for a great Downtown Napa spot or quick pick up lunch.
Dinner at Boulevard in SF.
Touring anywhere in the city.
Lunch depends on where we are
Dinner : Incanto!!!
I know you will have so many suggestions and they are SO welcome. Thanks.
I was just in Spain and found a great Rioja. Montecillo (or Bodega Montecillo) has a great bottle 2003 Reserva. Priced at about $20 retail on the east coast. Try it!
