Matt and I spent all day Saturday working on some home improvement projects so we dedicated Sunday to a day of leisure and headed out to Napa County to spend the day at a favorite town, Yountville.
Yountville is a small town near the big wineries in the Napa Valley – it was made famous by Thomas Keller when he founded the French Laundry almost 20 years ago. Keller expanded his restaurants on Washington Street to include bistro Bouchon, the Bouchon Bakery next door, and casual Ad Hoc down the street. To tempt taste buds even more, a few years ago chef Michael Chiarello opened Bottega next to his flagship Napa Style store. All of the restaurants are within a few hundred yards of each other which certifies Yountville as foodie heaven.
Yountville is a very small town, and most businesses, shops, restaurants and tasting rooms are located along the main street (Washington). Start your day at the Coffee Caboose and don’t miss getting your pastry at one of the best bakeries in the region, Bouchon Bakery, across the street.
