A: I’m so in love with the vibe at Dawn Ranch. It’s basically the California version of where Bobby & I got married, so it goes without saying I’d love to work there.

It’s called Porcini and serves up amazing, fresh, local food & craft beer, and it’s nestled smack dab between the ocean, the 101 and some giant redwood forests in way, way NorCal.)

Q: What’s your favorite restaurant in the Bay Area?

A: Piccino! I mean, there are so many, but this one is hands down the winner. Bobby & I always, always sit at the Chef’s table. Best seat in any restaurant for us.
