Help for a single mom with 2 gourmet daughters travelling in Napa/Lake Tahoe next week looking for resto suggestions...
I will be travelling to Napa (Calistoga) and then Lake Tahoe (Kings Beach area) next week and am looking for some great places to eat with my two daughters. We are all foodies, but my daughters are 13 and 10 so uber-fancy, great wine list places will be lost on them. Plus, we have somewhat of a budget to respect, so nothing too expensive - unless it can't be missed and we can get the cheaper meal at lunch. It is our first vist to these areas (but have been to the Bay area many times) so we are open to ideas on what to do as well...all suggestions welcome!
If you going past City of Napa around lunch time a visit to Ubuntu would be a real treat for the ladies. Inventive use of seasonal produce in nice room in a highly rated restaurant that won't break your budget. I believe Kings Beach is better found on the California board.

We live five miles from Kings Beach. Here's a thread that might help:
If you do search for Tahoe or Truckee, you'll find more. After looking these over, let me/us know if you have any questions. There's also a really nice Safeway in Kings Beach that also has a Starbucks. Weather is great; you'll have tons of fun.
How about Pizzeria Tra Vigne or Taylor's Refresher in St. Helena- both are good lunch stops with your girls. You might also check out Woodhouse Chocolates while you're there- they'll love the jewel-box of a store with the Tiffany-blue boxes!
