In my opinion, when I hear Cali wine country I not only think great wine, but delicious food too. We were not disappointed in terms of food expectations on this trip!
On Friday once everyone had regrouped at the hotel (we had people flying in from Dallas, New York and DC!), we were all famished and went exploring on foot for a yummy place to eat lunch. Despite it lightly raining in San Francisco and the group not being too familiar with the area, we found a delicious pho restaurant, Mau, that hit the spot.
Later that night, the gang headed to Tradition for pre-dinner handcrafted cocktails.
For dinner we ate at Foreign Cinema, a restaurant in the Mission District that Karen – Christina’s Matron of Honor – had suggested. (She was unable to fly in to San Francisco earlier on this day due to inclement weather). I really liked this restaurant. The cuisine is described as Californian-Mediterranean fare and there is an outdoor space where patrons can eat and enjoy watching movies on a large movie screen. The movie showing that evening was Dirty Dancing.
To start we ordered a brie and jam spread for the table.
Needless to say, no one in our party was hungry until dinner later that night!
Our last meal, together, (Tiffany and I were flying back home early the next morning), was at Torc, an American-style restaurant offering global farm-to-table dishes and wines.
We enjoyed everything we ordered, but definitely noticed that the service was a wee bit slow.
We ordered the chef’s version of deviled eggs for the table to start (sadly no picture).
For my final meal in Napa, I went with a favored meal – pasta of course!
Wth that folks, is our food wrap of the trip. Obviously there was no denying we ate well on this trip. All I have to say is thank goodness I am training for a 10-miler in April. 🙂
Have a great Monday.
