When one thinks of Napa, naturally wine is what comes to mind. While our vintners sure do make a beautiful bottle of cab, the area is also home to many world-class restaurants and has definitely put itself on the map beyond wine. Napa Valley Restaurant Week is one of the best times to come explore the culinary delights this region has to offer.
Napa Valley Restaurant Week January 22-29 welcomes you to dine throughout the valley and experience what is quickly becoming a hot-spot for cuisine. Choose from multi-course prix-fixe menus for lunch ($20) and dinner ($36 or $46). Napa is home to many Michelin-Star rated restaurants and can also brag about the farm-to-table practices.
Riverfront Napa’s Basalt restaurant is new on the culinary scene and will be one of many downtown restaurants opening their doors for you this week. You will be surely delighted by the creative dishes boasting with flavor from Basalt’s Chef Nick Sherman. In addition to the food, Basalt strives to provide a very welcoming ambiance and top-notch customer service.
