New Survey Results: Best Restaurants in the North BayBy Meesha Halm | October 16, 2013 By Meesha Halm | October 16, 2013
There’s a reason why Yountville is jokingly referred to as Kellerville. Between overseeing the kitchens at The French Laundry, Bouchon Bistro, Bouchon Bakery, Ad Hoc and the seasonal BBQ spot Addendum, chef Thomas Keller heads up five of the most sought-after restaurants in the tiny Napa Valley town. But savvy insiders know that there are plenty more great food options North of the Golden Gate Bridge to be had. From killer patisseries in Marin County and ramshackle roadhouses along the Sonoma coast shucking fresh oysters, to vaunted sushi shops and fancy steakhouses in Napa Valley hawking $2,000 bottles of Screaming Eagle, the 2014 San Francisco Bay Area Restaurants Survey covers the best dining options north of San Francisco Bay. So before you head out on a road trip up to the wine country, cruise through our slideshow below for the biggest winners in the North Bay. And don’t miss all of our 2014 Restaurant Survey coverage highlighting the top restaurants in the city of San Francisco, the East Bay, the South and more.
