This tiny bakery in Yountville CA (Napa Valley) is famous for good reason. It is arguably the best French pastry anywhere around. Light, flaky, delicious. Because it is so small there is almost always a line waiting. A few tables outside have to handle the guests. But wait we will. One bite of the heavenly pastries and you will be glad you came. I adore the almond croissants but pretty much anything you order will be a delight. Great coffee too.

Oysters, French onion soup, homemade bread & sparkling water for an early Sunday lunch make this Thomas Keller restaurant affordable and enjoyable.

My husband and I travel quite a bit, eating out during a vacation or while traveling can really make the experience good - or bad. We went to Bouchon on our last night during a recent trip to Napa Valley and it was simply amazing. Our table was ready when we arrived, although a very tightly seated restaurant, we were comfortable and our server was quick and knowledgable. But the food and preparation was what really took us by surprise, there was no over the top sauces or weird food combinations, I had Rainbow Trout with french style green beans, and this may sound boring but paired with our wine, we can barely wait to go back! It was pure French Countryside atmosphere with a sophisticated staff - the creme pots for dessert were recommended and eaten with pure delight! Don't miss this gem:)

The fresh bread made at the bakery next door is an amazing start. I had the sunchoke soup and barley salad for lunch, and both were excellent. My husband and I have dined here before and always have great service, not snobby, very attentive and helpful. We love Thomas Keller restaurants!
