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

Thanks very much. We are heading there Tuesday!

barndiva or the healdsburg shed?

Thanks Melanie. I didnt even think about the design aspect. I really had been focusing on the wineries and only now looking for food options. The Shed was recommended in this board to me. And i kept coming across good reviews of Barndiva! But if there are other places i should consider, by all means let me know!

Looking for a place for a light lunch in Sonoma (town) that is not girl and the fig

Thanks very much. El Molino is on my list of places to go, but I think I'll leave that for a day when I don't need to be light. Other options look fab, thanks.

Looking for a place for a light lunch in Sonoma (town) that is not girl and the fig

Hi,

Planning a wine country trip, and trying to decide on a place for lunch in Sonoma or near by. We have reservations for an early dinner at The Restaurant at Meadowood, and i am having a strangely hard time finding a place for lunch that day while we are visiting wineries around glen ellen, sonoma and perhaps Carneros. considering the Freemont Dinner, but it doesn't seem particularly light. I dont want to do girl and the fig as it is the ONE place i have eaten at in Sonoma. Ideas?

barndiva or the healdsburg shed?

Thanks! Seems its a no-brainer then!

Recs for late lunch near sfo?

Yes, a tuesday. Thanks

Trying to decide for a,place for lunch on or day exploring wineries around Healdsburg. Which would would you choose? Or do you have a better suggestion?

Recs for late lunch near sfo?

Hi,

Landing at SFO at 1.30 pm and looking for a place for lunch on our way to Sonoma. I figured b y the time we rent the car etc, we might not be eating until close to 3. We are planning to eat that night at the sonoma farmers market, so maybe a heartier lunch wouldnt be a terrible thing. Any suggestions nesr SFO or on the route to Sonoma?

Thanks

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!

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

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!

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

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!

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

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?

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

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?
