Looking for a little taste of France in Napa Valley?
For my 23rd birthday, we wanted to do something special. With so many excellent restaurants to pick from in Napa Valley, we decided on a piece of Paris, Bouchon.
After having moved to California from Paris 9 months previously, Bouchon was the perfect choice for my birthday celebrations. Elegant ambiance, attentive service and delicious food made this experience a must do. The French onion soup was authentic and well done. All of the food was made fresh with decadent simplicity. To finish off the beautiful dinner, we enjoyed pink champagne and fresh meringue with berry compote.
For those of you who don’t know, Napa Valley is wine country of the United States, where some of the most sought after wines in the world are produced. Since the late 1800s, the valley has become a major wine and food lover destination. In recent years, some of the top chefs in the country, and even the world, such as Thomas Keller, have moved to Napa to build one of the world’s most luxurious gourmet cuisine hubs.
If you are passing through Napa Valley or heading there for wine tasting heaven, be sure to save a night for Thomas Keller’s exquisite fine dining restaurant, Bouchon, in Yountville, CA.
