OENOTRI – NAPA

Oenotri is a Southern Italian restaurant that serves simple, excellent food like thin crust pizzas, pastas, and salads that are sourced from their own garden. We love it for lunch or brunch, but it’s a smart move no matter what meal you’re planning.

CELADON – NAPA

Napa staple, and one that’s maintained its status as such by consistently serving excellent food year after year since 1996. Hit Celadon for a meal at the bar after a long day of “tasting” wine, aka drinking two bottles of wine. The menu changes frequently, and always includes some Asian or Middle Eastern influence to keep things interesting. Get the Moroccan lamb chop if it’s available.

Address 500 Main Street, Napa, CA 94559

Phone 707.254.9690

ATLAS SOCIAL – NAPA

We love Atlas Social for the great food, awesome service, and energetic vibe. But we keep coming back for the shareable plates, especially the crab toast and pork belly tacos.

Phone 707.258.2583

oxbow public market – NAPA

Oxbow Public Market in Napa is one of our favorite places to spend a few hours on an afternoon that isn’t occupied by wine tasting. This indoor extravaganza of consumables is home to many things we love to consume, most important of which are oysters from Hog Island Oyster Co. Pull up a seat and get to slurping, and while you’re there, also check out the Oxbow Cheese & Wine Merchant, and the tacos from C Casa.

Address 610 & 644 1st Street, Napa, CA 94559

ad hoc – yountville

Probably our overall favorite restaurant in the entire Napa Valley. Why? Because it’s Thomas Keller food without Thomas Keller restaurant pretense. Sure, you could eat down the street at French Laundry, and you probably should someday. But Ad Hoc is a place you could eat three days a week. The set menu changes daily, includes a salad, some sort of meat entree, a cheese course, and dessert for $52 per person. We’ve never been disappointed. Not even once.

Address 6476 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599

Phone 707.944.2487

addendum – yountville

For a while, people used to book a reservation at Ad Hoc and pray to the fried chicken gods that Keller’s famous version would be on the menu on the day they visited. Now, you can get that legendary fried chicken without depending on luck or divine intervention. Just show up to this shack behind Ad Hoc between Thursday and Sunday and eat your chicken at a picnic table in peace.

Phone 707.944.1565

mustard’s grill – yountville

Mustard’s is a bit up the road from the town of Yountville, but it’s an absolute must visit. The move is to come here for lunch and eat the legendary Mongolian pork chop, preferably with a bottle of California pinot at your side. We like to make this our first stop when we get into town, just to set the tone for the rest of the trip.

Address 7399 St. Helena Hwy, Napa, CA 94558

Phone 707.944.2424

French laundry – yountville

Is it worth it? Absolutely, at least one time in your life. Maybe two, if you get rich selling Herbalife or make it on Jeopardy or something. Dare to dream.

Address 6640 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599

Phone 707.944.2380

bouchon – yountville

Here’s how you do Bouchon: arrive for lunch and order a dozen oysters, a bottle of Viognier, and the croque madame. Repeat annually or daily, depending on how your triglyceride counts are looking.

Address 6534 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599

Phone 707.944.8037

Redd wood – yountville

Redd is a classic Yountville restaurant featuring Asian-influenced dishes, good cocktails, and high end service. We like it, but we always feel like we can get that experience in other cities. However, we love the pizza place by the same owners, Redd Wood. Redd Wood is a cool, casual space that smells like a wood burning oven and serves excellent pies and handmade pasta. The wine list also features bottles from some legendary wineries you probably won’t get to visit, like Araujo. Rest assured your money here will be well spent.

Address 6755 Washington Street, Yountville, Ca 94599

Phone 707.299.5030

bistro jeanty – yountville

This cute little bistro is a great spot for a causal dinner, especially if you’re looking for something French but not fussy. Order the tomato soup, which comes with a puff pastry top, along with a bottle of Robert Sinskey Pinot Noir.

Address 6510 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599

Phone 707.944.0103

oakville grocery – oakville

At some point you will probably find yourself on St. Helena Highway headed to a winery, and you will inevitably pass Oakville Grocery. STOP. The sandwiches here are amazing, and you can buy wine and snacks and deli containers of high-end sides for your winery picnic and/or drunken limo ride.

Address 7856 St. Helena Hwy, Oakville, CA 94562
Phone 707.944.8802

Gott’s roadside – St. helena

This roadside burger spot is a must visit, thanks to their famous burgers and ahi tuna tacos. We even hit this spot for an egg sandwich at breakfast from time to time (all the time).

Address 644 1st Street, Napa, CA 94559
Phone 707.224.6900

Address 933 Main Street, St. Helena, CA 94574
Phone 707.963.3486

restaurant at meadowood – St. helena

Aside from French Laundry, this might be the most expensive, most absurd meal you can have in the entire Napa Valley. The price tag is $225 per guest, and it’s an amazing experience, assuming you won’t be sweating about the bill throughout dinner. It’s more modern and a bit more adventurous than French Laundry, but every bit as impressive. Save it for a (very) special occasion.

Address 900 Meadowood Lane, St. Helena, CA 94574

Phone 707.967.1205

goose & gander – St. helena

Goose & Gander is one of the livelier spots to grab dinner in St. Helena. The cocktails and outdoor patio may be the main attraction, but the food is better than it needs to be considering the aesthetically pleasing surroundings.

Address 1245 Spring Street, St. Helena, CA 94574

Phone 707.967.8779
