Wine Tasting Style In Napa Continued

IMG_2323Wine Tasting Style In Napa

Now that we’ve talked about my top 10 Napa wineries last week, it’s time to get to food and beauty.  Next to New York City, Napa is one of my favorite food destinations.  And this trip I was exceptionally lucky to have the chance to dine at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry.  French Laundry is known by many as the best restaurant in the world and I will admit, I’m pretty sure it is.  The service was spot on, the decor was beautiful and chic and the food was possibly life changing.  Trevor and I had such an exceptional meal though that we most definitely over ate.  At about course number 8 Trevor looked at me and said, “If one more course comes out, I’m going to get angry.”  Needless to say I had to be rolled home.

If you’re heading to Napa, here are my top 5 restaurants to eat at:

1. The French Laundry

2. Etoile at Domaine Chandon 

3. Redd Wood

4. Gott’s Roadside

5. Bouchon Bistro

After all that food, it’s time for a bit of relaxation and rejuvenation.  The afternoon before The French Laundry we decided to head to Indian Springs in Calistoga.  I highly suggest taking an afternoon and doing a mud bath/massage/facial combo.  It’s the perfect bit of detox, relaxation and beautifying.
