  • 04/02/07--17:31: Bacchus and Venus Wine Shop
  • Bacchus & Venus 769 Bridgeway Sausalito, CA 94965 415-331-2001 This wine shop is one of my favorite stops because the owner, Marcy Roth, and her staff are so knowledgeable. The shop itself is very inviting with a beautiful mahogany bar, an area that has gift items and an art gallery upstairs. I am always [...]

    We buy at least 90% of our produce for the week in our local Bay Area farmers markets.  The San Francisco Ferry Plaza farmers market is our overall favorite in the Bay Area. The setting is spectacular, and you can find almost anything there! We have been frequenting this market for more than 15 years.  We go early on Saturday [...]

  • 04/02/07--17:45: Bouchon Bakery
  • Bouchon Bakery 6540 Washington Street Yountville, CA 94599 707-944-1565 What a fabulous place – the baked goods are beautiful, fragrant and delicious!  Their breads are exquisite, too – I normally get one of their seeded loaves or a currant walnut loaf. You must try one of their “bouchons” – their signature dessert. Their “bouchon” is [...]

  • 04/02/07--17:45: Bistro Jeanty
  • Bistro Jeanty 6510 Washington Street Yountville, CA 94599 707-944-0103 The pork belly and lentils at Bistro Jeanty are to die for! The other menu item that is a must is their tomato soup with beautiful, flaky pastry on top. I tend to favor Bistro Jeanty in the wintertime, as their fare is pretty hardy.

  • Bistro Don Giovanni 4110 Howard Lane (just off Highway 29) Napa, CA 707-224-3300 Bistro Don Giovanni is one of my all-time favorites.

  • 04/02/07--17:53: Hurley’s Restaurant
  • Hurley’s Restaurant 6518 Washington Street Yountville, CA 94599 707-944-2345 I truly enjoy Hurley’s wild game week. It only happens once a year (in November, I believe) and is highly anticipated! The other weeks of the year bring excellent, fresh seasonal cuisine. Hurley’s has a nice big fireplace and is a very cozy place to [...]

  • 04/02/07--17:54: The French Laundry
  • The French Laundry 6640 Washington Street Yountville, CA 94599 707-944-2380 I have been to The French Laundry a few times now. The food is exquisite and the service is very good. It is definitely a “special occasion” restaurant and worth a visit if you can get in (no, unfortunately, I don’t have any good [...]

  • 04/02/07--17:55: Emporio Rulli
  • Emporio Rulli 464 Magnolia Street Larkspur, CA 94939 1-888-88-RULLI One of my all-time favorite bakery/coffee shops is Emporio Rulli in Larkspur. Their pastries, gelatos, sandwiches and panforte are wonderful, as are their coffee drinks. It is off the beaten path, but worth the trip. The town of Larkspur is cute, too, and offers some [...]

  • 04/02/07--17:57: Cyrus Restaurant
  • Cyrus Restaurant 29 North Street Healdsburg, CA 95448 707-433-3311 We heard many great things about Cyrus before we went, and we were not disappointed. From the cucumber soup to the seared scallops and the filet of beef tenderloin – everything was expertly prepared, extremely fresh and full of flavor. The presentation was top notch, [...]

  • 04/02/07--18:51: Restaurant Gary Danko
  • Restaurant Gary Danko 800 Northpoint St. at Hyde San Francisco, CA 415-749-2060 Gary Danko is perhaps my favorite restaurant in the city for a special occasion meal. The menu is very flexible – you can choose if you want small or large portions of each course. Their wine pairings are normally spot-on, and their [...]
