looking for ideas for some lunch and dinner options for a group of ladies spending the weekend in napa near the end of summer.
this is a repeat visit, last year's favorite was ZuZu. Looking for options to linger and enjoy a glass of wine, nothing as expensive or destination-esque as TFL or LaToque... also, these ladies like to share smaller plates so they can try more things (plus they are lighter eaters). and any place that allows for lingering and chatting. and moderately priced.
Here is what comes to mind:
Cindy's backstreet in SH
ZuZu - they want a repeat visit
Wappo bar - mostly thinking of this for the patio, but I haven't been for while... so I'm looking for recent opinions.
what about Ad Hoc or Redd? I have not been to either, but am wondering if these fit the criteria... what about the cafe at tra vigne?
bouchon is out - not oyster/pate people
angele - at there last time, enjoyed but want to try a new place
also out, any heavy meat restos
also, if anyone has any tour recommendations (please e-mail me off the board). to give you an idea, they went to Villa Amorosa last year and loved it. I'm thinking of sending them up the tram at sterling or to darioush perhaps? or chateau mont helena, just because it is so pretty.
