Long ago, the Napa was very remote – it wasn’t close to a big city, and the residents liked it that way because they wanted to live closer to the food they ate, and savor the natural flavor of good quality ingredients. Those traditions live strong in Napa ,which boasts many farm-to-table restaurants, world-class chefs and award-winning cuisine on every street. You’ll find the top local chefs at the Napa Farmers Market every morning because they care about the freshness of the food they serve.
Of course, Napa Valley residents stick close to their roots too – there’s a restaurant for every taste, every occasion, and every budget because we eat here too and we take pride in the joy of dining with great company.
