What to Eat in Napa Valley

If you love food, then you'll love Napa. And thanks to its array of award-winning restaurants, you'll have no trouble finding delectable international cuisine to pair with your incredible wine. After all, properly pairing food and wine is extremely important, especially in California wine country. But expect to spend big bucks when it comes to dining in Napa, as the majority of restaurants offer fine dining. You'll have your pick of menus, but La Toque, Morimoto Napa and Angèle are all highly regarded (and Michelin star recipients). If you're looking for something more casual that won't break the bank, Genova Delicatessen and Ravioli Factory is a great Italian option.

And consider heading directly outside of Napa to some of the surrounding towns and restaurants, where you'll find equally as yummy dishes, sometimes even at lower prices. The French Laundry or Bistro Jeanty are located in Yountville and both Michelin star award-winning restaurants serving French cuisine, beloved by locals and visitors alike. While Farmstead at Long Meadows Ranch and Tra Vigne serve locally sourced dishes in neighboring St. Helena.
