Fourth Christmas in Sonoma - anything new, better, worse?

This will be our fourth consecutive Christmas house exchanging with a family in Sonoma. Has much changed on the food scene this year? I like to cook more than I like to eat out :) so we mostly stay in for dinner and have lunches out. We're located close to the square so that's always a plus. A few faves are La Salette, Fremont Diner, Boon Fly Cafe, Juanita Juantia, Sonoma Market, farmer's market (do I remember that's on Friday). So you can see, really not high end dining. And while we drink wine every day we're not "into" it like many are so a great wine list isn't important. Any suggestions for Sonoma or the immediate (or not so immediate) area will be very appreciated. TIA.
Hard to remember what's this year and what's last but
if you haven't had break from Mike the Bejkr definitely try to get to the Fri farmers mkt to get some of that
Cant remember if Hot Box in Boyes Hot Spring was open last year - it's casual good but not great
Spinster Sisters restaurant has opened in Santa Rosa and is pretty good - nice bar, good choices of small plates. I'm sure it's reviewed somewhere
Oak Hill Farm is once again open til Christmas
Victorian Farmstead who has great meat is at the Fri farmers market also
Crisp bakery has opened where Artisanal used to be - they no longer have a store front - opposite the library. Some nice patisserie and croissants etc
Otherwise can't think of anything new but if Ido will post
