Not a single North Bay restaurant made OpenTable's Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants list, and that's just fine by us. Who in the world wants to compete for elbow room at a mega-crowded "hottest place in town" when there's cool, relaxing outdoor dining to be had? Alas, OpenTable's just-released Top 100 Outdoor Dining list bestow honors on four local restaurants with exceptional open-air seating, and we couldn't agree more. To wit:

Auberge du Soleil Rutherford, Napa County

Corks Restaurant at Russian River Vineyards Forestville, Sonoma County

L'appart Resto San Anselmo, Marin County

Rustic, Francis's Favorites Geyserville, Sonoma County

In related news, Zagat has just released its "30 Under 30" list of Bay Area food-world up-and-comers, which includes a handful of more-than-deserving North Bay faces:

Heidi Brown culinary liason at the Restaurant at Meadowood

Jessica Entzel pastry chef at Morimoto Napa

Ryan Harris sales and marketing manager at Fatted Calf Charcuterie

Erik Johnson sommelier at Thomas Keller Restaurant Group

Collin McDonnell and Shane Goepel (pictured) founders and brewers at HenHouse Brewing Co.
