Anyone have any truly memorable dining experience recently in Napa Vally, specifically restaurants that are NOT on ritzy glitzy spa/resort tract? Looking for up and coming, or restaurants that punch above their weight class, so to speak, good food and wine without dropping $1,000 for dinner for two tasting menu/wine pairings.
The Charter Oak (St. Helena)
Goose & Gander (St. Helena)
Redd Wood (Yountville)
Miminashi (Downtown Napa)
Compline (Downtown Napa)
Basalt (Downtown Napa)
The Kitchen Door (Downtown Napa -- Oxbow)
Live Fire Pizza (Downtown Napa -- Oxbow)
Cole's Chop House (Downtown Napa)
Cordeiro's Steakhouse (Napa)
As an aside, Kitchen Door has great brunch.
