Anyone interested in taking to a quick trip to any/all of these places? All of them are on Washington Street in Yountville in Napa Valley, I believe

I'm visiting the Bay Area in about two months (first time!) and, from what I understand, that's how far ahead you need to put in reservations at some of these places.

Any interest?

Oh, and those interested in something more in-town, I'm definitely planning a visit to Fleur de Lys as well.

Sound tasty...any plans from people who are in SF now to try one of these in the next week or 2? (I'm here through next Fri, and if so would love to join the group.)

Hey Paul,

I'm totally interested! I just moved to the Bay Area a couple of days ago and was just sayi8ng yesterday how I wanted to go to these places and needed someone to go with. Message me your details about when your coming in and everything. Lets hope we can go to Ad Hoc on a fried chicken night- I hear it is perfection!

Forgot to add Slanted Door as well, as that's super close to where I'm staying. Anyone eaten there before?

It sounds like you've gravitated to some of the more expensive guide book recommendations and you'll probably not be disappointed, just light in the pocketbook. But there are many, many, MANY restaurants in and around SF that can rival those or at least satisfy your desire for an exceptional meal and dining experience for far less cost.

Some have been suggested here's a couple more. Butterfly's on the Embarcadero. Zazie over on Cole Street (near the Haight Ashbury neighborhood)

East Bay (that is North Oakland and Berkeley) has some exceptional restaurants as well. Marica on College Ave has a 3 course prix fixe at 25 or 22 if you get there before 6:30. Focus is seafood and its superb.
