Santa Rosa Restaurants/Dry Creek Passport Weekend
My best friend and I are treating ourself to the Dry Creek Passport weekend at the end of April for our birthdays. We are staying at one of her favorite spots, The Gables Inn in Santa Rosa. We're flying into Oakland Friday morning and headed up.
Have never been to the passport weekend before...not sure what to expect. Any tips? Any places not to miss who throw a great bash?
We would like to make dinner reservations for Friday night (figure we will be stuffed from eating and drinking all day Saturday and Sunday). Have read about a number of fine restaurants in the area. I think we would like to keep costs somewhat moderate so we have some $$$ leftover to buy wine on Saturday and Sunday...any suggestions?
I am very intrigued by Zazu, but not really sure of the price range...their website is very inviting though. Also, how is Flavor in Santa Rosa? We both love good food and wine...and atmosphere of course! We're a couple of single chicks (okay, maybe we're just a little too old to be called "chicks"!), so a decidely romantic spot might not be as fun for us. And we will probably want to do dinner a little later...maybe 8ish.
Thanks for any suggestions and tips...we are counting the days...that would be 23 from today!
