Hello, from the Manhattan board! My husband has a business meeting in Napa in June, and is staying at the Silverado. He's asked me to find a restaurant for him to dine at with a client for dinner on a week night. The suggestions that I've come up with, based on reviewing threads, are:
Auberge du Soleil - maybe too far a drive?
Are the latter two "too casual"? Would appreciate any thoughts on these choices, or if I've overlooked places that I should consider for him. I've read a lot about Ubuntu, but don't think that's for him. I think they'd like to go somewhere that's not too far a drive from Napa proper. I've seen some good reviews of Cole's, but he's not a big fan of steak places. Price isn't a big issue, and he likes pretty much all cuisines.
Edit: He said he'll hire a car/driver for dinner so that he doesn't have to worry about his wine consumption, but probably doesn't want to go more than 20 minute or so away from the Silverado.
