Napa area dining

We (2 of us) have 2 or 3 nights next week in Napa...we want to side step French laundry and meadowood and are looking for other quality, should not be missed, suggestions for dinner. Also, anyone familiar with Oenotri or Angele in Napa?

We also have 2 nights in SFO--one on the later side --again..suggestions (inclusive of a Chinatown must go) are most appreciated!

Thanks so much!

Meriden/Middletown Seafood?

Your timing was perfect...thanks! We were just about to scrounge around for a place for dinner when I saw your post. We did, in fact, try close harbor seafood and were very pleasantly surprised...the steamers, shrimp and steamed lobster were all wonderful and the wait staff was very pleasant. Keep in mind that it is a BYOB. The owner was at the restaurant and visited our table several times to make sure all was well and chat with us. The evening was enjoyable and we will definitely be back.

Best late-night dining on mainline

I too, am a transplanted NYer in Merion and can more than empathize! If looking near Berwyn, try Nectar (pricey for these parts but good)
