Take a California destination famous for great wine, add amazing weather and its resulting bounty of fresh produce, and toss in the devotion of local chefs to making the most of this abundance. The result? Sonoma County’s enviable dining scene. From one end of this huge county to the other (it can take you two hours to drive across it), you’ll find winning restaurants, both casual and fine dining (in Sonoma County there’s not a lot of difference between the two). From the Sonoma Valley in the east to the Pacific coast, you’ll find great places in just about every little town in the county, so whether you’re lying on the beach, exploring over 400 wineries, or walking along the Russian River, you’ll find somewhere nearby for lunch or dinner. The casual atmosphere throughout the area enables you to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the great food, along with a glass (or two) of Sonoma County wine, of course!
