The French Laundry – Yountville
The Restaurant at Meadowood – St. Helena

2 STARS (Excellent cooking and worth a detour)

Acquerello – San Francisco – Surprising. We’ll have to revist, never believed they’d get 2.
Atelier Crenn – San Francisco
Baumé
– Palo Alto – Inventive, gimmicky, but 1 star in our opinion
Coi – San Francisco
Manresa – Los Gatos
Quince – San Francisco – Excellent service, some of the best in SF

1 STAR (Very good restaurant in its category)
