Los Angeles Chowhound visiting "up north"
Help me please. I am traveling to the bay area and the wine country. Probably three nights in each place. With money not really a concern, please recommend the best dining for my visit.
Thanks in advance for you help. Cheers!
There are three essential Bay Area restaurants that just don't have equivalents in SoCal: Zuni Cafe (if not for a dinner with the oysters, Ceasar salad, and roast chicken for two, stop in for lunch or latenight for their burger and ultrathin fries), Chez Panisse (if you don't want the more formal, set menu downstairs, try the upstairs cafe), and Tadich Grill (oldest restaurant in the West, oldtime waiters, no reservations, get the sand dabs or the petrale sole).
