Napa - local dishes/restaurant recommendations please!

FoodGoblin | Jul 6, 2012 03:34 PM

Hello there,

My name is Lucy and this summer I am undertaking a big food project: I am travelling across the United States from California, through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York. The purpose of my journey is to discover the best dishes, restaurants and food producers in the country - essentially my project is to eat my way across the country. I am really looking to get to the heart of each state's cookery. I will be writing about my journey along the way and publishing it on, my food website.

For example, I am undertaking a big exploration into US bbq along the route - travelling around Texas to find the best Texas BBQ, and then comparing it to East and West North Carolinian BBQ!
All very exciting stuff, I think!

I am looking for a bit of advice on all of these places - but especially Napa (mainly because its appropriate to this particular forum section, but don't hesitate to recommend for the other places too!).

I am looking for a bit of advice on a few things:
- Particular dishes to try - what is the local 'thing' in Napa.
- Restaurants/shops/producers/food places to try
- If you know of any opportunity for me to get some hands on experience cooking that would be great!
- Any other suggestions welcomed!

If anyone could offer any advice on the above that would be fantastic!

Many thanks,
Lucy x
