New visitor to Napa
First time visitor to Napa. Have reservations at Hurleys and Ristorante Allegra. Did we select well?
Sorry, no. Loomco is right. Those two restos would be far, far down my list.
My favorites are:
St. Helena: Terra***, Meadowood, Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen, Martini House**
Rutherford: Rutherford Grill
Yountville: French Laundry, Redd**, Ad Hoc, Bouchon at the bar only, Bistro Jeanty (but be sure to follow the posts on these last two to know what to order)
Napa: Don Giovanni***, Ubuntu***, Pizzeria Azzurro
Please do a search on each of the towns listed. Also do a search with each of the resto names and read many different Chowhound opinions.
re: maria lorraine
Another way to search is on the Places database which has restaurant ifno, the website, if any, and attached Chowhound reports. Here's a search on Yountville.
If searching on the town of Napa add the word 'city' to your search or you will get everything in Napa county.
I'd asterisk Bouchon. Yes, I didn't sit at the bar only nearby the bar, but why eat at a chain when in Napa? Also, I wouldn't go fo something like French food that can be had anywhere.
I'd add Brix to that list and maybe take advantage of their Happy Hour deals Mon-Fri 4-6. Bottega is new and has been getting some good reports.
Also Ad Hoc.
In Sonoma, there is also Cyrus.
