One evening in San Fran / 5 nights in Napa

Yank sing was great today for dim sum.

Week in San Fran & Surrounding area

Leaving in mid July to spend a week in San Fran (3 days in SF/Union Square) then 2 days in sonoma follow by 2 days in Carmel/Monterrey. Will be with out 12 & 14yo kids who we take everywhere. Looking for great dining experiences in San Fran. We are looking at Tadich Grill, House of Prime Rib (Son's pick) and some great dim sum on Sunday. Any other recommendations on places to try in Sonoma (need dinner pick) or Carel/Monterrey (lunch/dinner). We are from Miami so prefer local and west coast spots that are unique to area.

4 days in LA/Pasadena

Elsie..we are from South Florida and are foodies here so we would like local fare or stuff we cant get here. Asian i.e. Sushi would be nice as well as Pizza and Mexican (kids like that). Not really looking for any more steakhouses or chinese. Reasonable dinners in $10-20 entree range would be fine. We have looked at yelp and also looking for real life suggestions. Thanks so much

Will be in DC for a quick trip. Staying only one night. Have meetings on the hill and need a place to grab dinner by myself either by Capital or by Marriott Crystal City on Jefferson Davis Parkway on Monday Night. Seafood, a good steak or local fare.

Also need a nice place to unwind by capital to have a few cocktails before heading to airport. Heard good things about Ebbitts..

Union Square for few days

I will be in San Fran on business for a few days starting Sunday Afternoon. Looking to enjoy a few good meals while there on business. Would like to try some good asian or seafood even though will be alone. Not really crazy about dining solo in a really fancy place. I like Oceanaire's Oyster Bar to have a good dinner for example when I travel. Any suggestions? Staying at Palomar Hotel.

Dinner in Downtown area

I have been to Oceanaire in Seattle and Minneapolis. Always great. Thanks!
