Sonoma Restaurant Recommendations

Thanks, Robert! I must have spelled it wrong in my search, because I clearly missed ALL of that! :) I am thinking of the Girl and the Fig and LaSalette Restaurants.

Sonoma Restaurant Recommendations

I know this post is outdated... anyone have any links to a recent thread, or suggestions? I am looking for the exact same thing, I'll be there next week!

Any thoughts on Benzinger?

Forgot to mention I have reservations on Sunday at Cindy's Backstreet, Monday at Ad Hoc and Tuesday lunch at Morimoto which I'll work into my sightseeing as well...

Okay, I'll try searching both. Also, I don't mind driving around either. Maybe someone has a 1day in Napa itinerary they like to do? I'd love to get a sampler of everything the region has to offer (from a local's POV vs. the guide books!)

Thanks for the suggestions! I've been reading other posts on Chow Hound and I am getting so overwhelmed with the planning.... seems like there are so many options.

I'll be in Sonoma in June for a few days and am looking for some suggestions in the Napa Valley region (have car, will travel). I am more interested in gardens, architecture and how wine is made from an educational standpoint instead of the actual tastings themselves. I'm not a big wine drinker but I love seeing the craft of how things are done and I very much appreciate that aspect of things. Any thoughts on a day trip that might include a winery or two, but some local sights too? We'll be in Sonoma at the Fairmont on a Sunday night and will have dinner at Cindy's Backstreet. I'm then are looking for things to do Monday and Tuesday and then we are off to San Fran. I am okay with booking ahead and I don't mind paying a fee for the tour.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!
