Favorite restaurant in America: El Dorado Kitchen in Sonoma. A few years back, my wife and I tucked into their chef's tasting menu and wine pairing, and about four hours later realized we'd just had the best meal of our lives. The chef at the time and most of his line were expats from the French Laundry who started their own outpost over in Sonoma. The food was inspired, the wine pairings were thoughtful and generous, the service was unmatched, and the patio setting on a cool Nor-Cal evening was perfect.
