MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This is one of the first restaurants to elevate the Napa Valley to greatness. For over a decade, Chef Robert Curry has been ensuring its legacy with cooking that is the very definition of Californian cuisine: global flavors expressed through local and seasonal ingredients. The kitchen’s work is as impressive as the setting, although it is during brunch or lunch when the creations truly come to life. Everything seems just a bit more beautiful from this extraordinary perch, overlooking the vineyards and mountains. Those terrace tables have some of the best views around. Meals may be inspired by the comforting flavors of Sacramento Delta asparagus soup bobbing with lobster bits lurking at the bowl's base. Then Kurobuta pork chop set atop a red wine-Meyer lemon sauce is cooked to a perfect blush and served alongside intensely charred rapini for refreshing bitterness. A warm pineapple tart surrounded by a swirl of salted caramel makes for a sweet, savory and deliciously fruity bite. Servers are stylish, polite and manage to refill your glass after each sip, without seeming intrusive. Their wine list is one of the most notable in the valley and proudly showcases local growers.
