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.
Torc has a very reasonable Tasting menu along with wine pairing. I also love the Bounty Hunter for BBQ and a fairly diverse wine selection if you're up for something more casual. Both are in downtown Napa and are within walking distance of each other.
I second Torc!
