Brunch in Napa Valley
I will be venturing up to Napa in a few weeks with friends and we are looking for a great Sunday brunch. I've been surfing around and it looks like most recommendations are for either ABC or Boonfly... but most of the reviews I've seen aren't super recent.
If you had one brunch in Napa, which we do, where would you go?
Our two dinners are going to be at Bistro Jeanty and Bottega. Lunches at Dean & Deluca and Taylor's Refresher/ Gott's (side note: which is it exactly?)

Brix. No question, not even a little bit. Sometimes we go up to Napa for the purpose of a Brix brunch, and then decide what wineries to visit while we're up there. Don't miss the gorgeous salads and other uses of beautiful fresh veggies and fruits. And the cheeses. And the gulf shrimp. And the clams. And the muffins. Oh dear now I think I have to go back again. If the weather is at all cooperative, ask to sit on the patio directly next to a heat lamp because the gardens are just so beautiful.
It used to be called Taylor's Refresher but there is a legal dispute about who owns the name "Taylor's Refresher" so it is now also known as Gott's, the name of the family that currently owns it.

For me, Sat or Sun lunch/brunch favorites include:
Solbar in Calistoga, sliders to share as a starter and then the paillard chicken with butter lettuce
Redd in Yountville, John Dory with clams and chorizo over foamed jasmine rice
For less formal, more breakfast like offerings, I like
Boon Fly Cafe, especially smoked salmon flatbread and eggs Benedict
Fremont Diner, anything with hot buttermilk muffins
