A tour through Napa's varied and delicious farm products, Oxbow Market offers the opportunity for you to pick up many items to take home with you. The market also offers places to grab a bite and a coffee if you need a pit-stop.
It's the French Laundry, need I say more? Get ready to blow a month's rent on what will surely be the best meal of your life.
This place is a favorite among locals, and doesn't have the same pretentiousness that can come with the food at many of Napa's restaurants. The food speaks for itself, and they have an organic garden out back.
This is Thomas Keller's most casual option in his restaurant empire, using simple ingredients to fill your belly, and tempt you back another day.
When you think Napa, you don't really think BBQ. But you should. It's not the typical 'elevated' Napa fare, and it doesn't necessarily pair well with wine, but sometimes you just need some down and dirty home ribs.
Long Meadow Ranch is dedicated to 'excellence through responsible farming,' and they really have achieved it. Not only do they produce wine, but also honey, olive oil, eggs, and grass-fed beef. Truly a foodie's dream.
Yes, it's a winery. But it serves food from Thomas Keller's Bouchon to pair with its tastings. A win win!
A Michelin-starred restaurant that serves pizza? That's right. This one's not to be missed.
