I will be in Napa Valley in two weeks (staying in Napa and spending days in Ruthersford). I have two dinners free while I am there, and I'd like some suggestions for don't-miss-it places in the area.
I've never been to Napa Valley.
I already know about French Laundry: is it worth it?
Some cheaper-than-French-Laundry suggestions are also welcome.
Please don't suggest Chez Panisse... I am dying to go there but Berkeley is just too far from where I'll be.
Also, any comments on these suggestions (from the list given to me by the program I'm attending) would be welcome:
Bistro Don Giovanni
Auberge Du Soleil
Greystone (CIA restaurant)
Thank you SF 'hounds!
