MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

You’ll want to tip your own toque in appreciation after a meal at this downtown fine-dining lair in the Westin Verasa Napa, which blends a serious approach to cuisine and service that has just enough cheek to keep things lively.

La Toque may display an oversized inflatable chef’s hat hanging above its walkway, but the interior is the soul of modern sophistication, with leather-topped tables, a fireplace, and an extensive wine list—proffered on an iPad. The cadre of staff is notable, and the well-trained, knowledgeable waiters always appear to be in sync with the celebratory crowd.

Choose between an à la carte menu, or opt for a signature six-course tasting, beginning with exquisite canapés like perfectly seasoned tuna tartare or clams with apple vinaigrette. Thin slices of beef loin carpaccio are lightly smoked, then artfully presented to resemble a flower topped with creamy tuna sauce, sautéed wild mushrooms, and dried tomato. Intense Lebanese spices come to life in the wonderfully tender braised squid with dates, almonds, cauliflower, and a spoonful of thick yogurt.

Desserts, like the butter-crunch cake with apple, underscore the glamorous and delicious character of the restaurant itself.
