Napa Restaurant Dilemma?!

angmatt Apr 19, 2011 07:29 PM

My husband and I are going to Napa for 3 days this summer and I am torn between a few restaurants. The only ones of this list that I have been to are Mustards, but I know that my husband will love it, so I am considering it again! Here are the restaurants that I am torn between. Any suggestions between these or even others that you think may be better would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Wow, they're all walkable from each other than a jaunt to mustards! Two thoughts: mix your styles and don't do two heavy places per day.

    My very personal ranking: Redd, Bouchon, Mustards, Bottega, Bistro Jeanty.


    A. breakfast pastries at Bouchon Bakery, lunch at Solbar at Solage in Calistoga (Michelin one star, stylish place: try the sliders, the pork special or the chicken pailaard,; nap, late dinner at Redd.

    B. Breakfast at Luca Hotel, Yountville, quiet and deliciously wonderful; lunch at Mustards, pork chop,
    calamari salad, Duck, dinner in your room-- drink, don't eat

    C. Back to Bouchon bakery for breakfast, try the ham and cheese baguette, panini style; picnic lunch purchased at Dean and Deluca, eat just outside under the olive trees; dinner at Bouchon.

    Go home for diet and rest

      What about Ad Hoc? Personally, I would choose them over Mustards or Jeanty (haven't been to Bouchon or Bottega yet)... but they are all good choices.

        I am a big fan of Bottega. It is a good list, so maybe look at it as what type of food you feel like French, Italian, Californian...

        Definitely agree with Bouchon Bakery for breakfast! So yummy.

          If you want delicious rustic Italian food go to Oenotri.
