Another amazing experience in Yountville.
Was more than a weekend getaway …. It was a culinary experience. We stopped a little bit to our favorite bakery and then we decided to be touristy…. Went shopping at the MarketPlace…. You have to go there the Panama Hat store it’s just fabulous. The art galleries are very nice, although the pieces exhibited are very pricey.
So finally we decided to have lunch. There are so many options out there, it’s just amazing took us about 1.5h to decide what to try this time. So we did …..we tried Botega. They were not very busy, as it was shortly after the lunch crowd….but because they were getting ready for a wine tasting event we didn’t get to stay on the patio.
The service was fine but the food was extraordinary. We had the Brussels sprouts salad and the grilled octopus for appetizers. I believe this was the best choice ever. The grilled octopus was amazing, tender and sweet and the greens salad just fabulous.
We had the Black Garlic Spaghetti with head-on gulf prawns and mushrooms and the Mediterranean seafood brodetto with tarragon …..so delicious. We loved both dishes and I am looking forward for my next visit there….maybe for dinner this time.
