Awesome! thanks so much.

Thanks! And what chicken road stand is this? I am trying figure out food for that day!!

Beetlebug, how long does the mountain top tour last? This sounds like a nice way to start the day!

Ok, you have all been more than generous and apologies if i am asking for too much. Trying to plan the day, i feel it would be ideal to find a winery between glen ellen and Healdsburg to hit before lunch. Any recs? I would love sparkling given the time, but i understand that might not be possible there. Thanks so much. I dont know how people plan vacations without chowhound!

Yes, thanks. I got that.

Fabulous! thanks so much. Any recs for food around there as we are at it? :)

Robert- any specific winery you would suggest from the ones listed in this map, or one you would note isn't there? Thanks a million

Thanks! Any suggestions of specific wineries in the Alexander Valley or Dry Creek? I would prefer smaller wineries, rustic or fancy is fine. (i would want to avoid at all costs circus such as the Coppola). Preference for reds over whites/sparkling.

Thanks! Absolutely great idea to insert a farm or two!

is there a place where I can find some reliable Sonoma wineries itineraries?

Thanks, i was indeed looking at Scribe. I will make a reservation for sure!

Mrich, so looking at flight itineraries and such seems we only have 2 days for wineries. One day we have a reservation at 5.30 at meadowood, so I think we'll stay around Sonoma (the town) or nearby. That el Molino central looks awesome! I will definitively make it there!

So that leaves us just one full day of exploring. Of the three itineraries you proposed, is there one you like better? Maybe nicer scenery going there. better food? Robert's descriptions of the Pinot in RRV is very appealing, but I am sure we will find wonderful wines everywhere!

Robert, would you recommend we went to Sebastopol if we only had one day? Over RRV or healdsburg?

is there a place where I can find some reliable Sonoma wineries itineraries?

thanks for this. Very helpful! Thanks particularly for the sonoma farmer's market tip. We actually land on aTuesday and this is perfect.
I had considered doing the picnic at Lynmar. Would you recommend that? Or are there some wineries where you would recommend eating too?

Hi,

My husband and I will be in Sonoma for 3 days in June/July, and trying to decide on a good itinerary of wineries while we are there. I started looking at the different threads here but I am finding it a bit overwhelming given that I know little about the area. We are staying in Glen Ellen and have decided (unless you tell me otherwise) to avoid Napa (expect for a meal at Meadowood) and stick to Sonoma. I am thinking one day we will stick to the Russian River Valley and haven't decided on the other day. Is there a place where I can find some decent recs of places that aren't overly touristy that will give me a good first sense of the area, and then I can go read your specific recs on particular wineries? I am not being too ambitious and just hope to hit 3 or so per day. So any suggestions on how to start to tackle what seems like a daunting task? thanks

Is DBGB any good besides the sausage?

To top, it's a group of 6, so not so easy to find reservations. I couldn't get a reservation in at least 10 places I thought of, so I ended up looking on opentable to see what was available for a group that big, which is how I ended up at DBGB. We have one at Jane- which, while a bit boring, might be the right place. Thanks everyone.

2 lunches and 2 dinners in Brooklyn...need to make it count!

I would STRONGLY suggest that you try to get reservations for Battersby or try to walk in early during the week. They only take reservations for the prix-fix, but it is worthy and seriously delicious. The same owners have Dover, which is also very good. I would recommend you try the cauliflower salad at Dover; it is amazing.

A good option for lunch is AL di la in Park Slope. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Brooklyn and the lunch means you skip the dinner line.

I have also become a big fan of Colonie on Atlantic Avenue. Delicious, innovative, good drinks.

For brunch, I really like Buttermilk Channel or Frankie's.

Enjoy!

I have a reservation for DBGB, I am going out with my-inlaws, which are somewhat finicky and my FIL doesn't eat pork, so I think that kills the option of many of the sausages and other delicacies. I have read less than stellar reviews, and I am wondering if it is a mistake to go there. i was tempted by the reasonable prices, and well, I do love all things pork. Is the fish etc any good?

Auberge du S, Meadowood or Sobar-Solage [Napa Valley]

well, you are all making me feel very happy about my lack of reservation luck!

Auberge du S, Meadowood or Sobar-Solage [Napa Valley]

Thanks. I think we are going Meadowood. Looks fantastic.

Auberge du S, Meadowood or Sobar-Solage [Napa Valley]

I was hoping to get a reservation at French Laundry for our anniversary dinner but no luck. I am considering these 3 now (I have reservations in all of them, although the one at Meadowood is late, 9:30 pm).Would you help me choose one?
My preferences:
-less stuffy place
- hopefully a bit animated. we are "young 45 year olds" :), i don't love a boring place
- creative
- a place like no other

i am assuming these will all have impeccable ingredients, service.

We are staying at Glen Ellen, in case that matters.

Is it OK to take a child to Sylvain?

Thinking of going to Preservation Hall with our 7 year old for the first show, and hoping to catch dinner before nearby. People have recommended Sylvain a lot. Is it ok to bring a kid? We live in NY and eat out often, so she is used to be in restaurants and behaves ok, but i wouldn't want to take her to a super stuffy place, or where i need to hush her every 4 minutes. Would this be OK?

Looking for food recs not too far of the parade routes on Monday night and Fat Tuesday

Hi-

We will be arriving to NOLA on Monday Feb 16 in the afternoon, and staying at the Loews Hotel near Poydras. I am at a bit of a loss on how to plan our meals on Monday night and Tuesday, as it seems that moving around wont be too easy and many places are closed anyway. I am still hoping to not have to get mediocre food for the first days of our stay. What would you recommend that is within a half and hour walk from the hotel? Places we have reservations for the rest of our stay are Boucherie, Maurepas, hoping for Jacques Imo, Couchon. Also, I will be with my 7 year old, so I want to avoid the FQ. From what I have seen Parasol's might be a good option for lunch, perhaps ever the Commander's Place is doable? We are New Yorkers, so not afraid of a good walk. Happy to hear recs for simple places, such as Clover Grill or the such.

Mission Chinese or Red Farm tonight?

at this point, we are not really looking for romantic- just better food and shorter wait times!

cacio e pepe or caffe falai?

An out of town friend just announced a last minute visit and is requesting Italian. We want to stay downtown. These two places have reservations available. I have eaten at Falai Paneteria and like it; Cacio e Pepe was on my list of to go places but never made it and can't find any new reviews. Has anyone been to either of them? Which one would you choose?

Visiting Portland with children

We'll be visiting Portland with two 5 year olds, and we are looking for places with great food where we can take them. We have a sitter so we can go to Le Pigeon and Ned Ludd, but would love suggestions particularly for lunch and trucks. Keen on finding places that have interesting food but also something that kids will eat- these are pretty ok eaters, will have veggies, new stuff etc but we need places where, for example, not EVERYTHING is spicy. Does that eliminate Pok Pok? What truck / pod would you recommend? And what about donuts?
Thanks!
