Now that you know what to wear in Yountville, let’s discuss where to eat while you are there. Here are my top Yountville restaurants.
Brunch at Bouchon
Does French food suit your fancy?! If so, reserve a table early at Bouchon and prepare to be wowed. Go for brunch and order from the brunch or dinner menu. If you’re in the mood for breakfast food, get the chicken and waffles. I guarantee it’ll be the most succulent chicken you’ll ever eat. Otherwise, the steak frites will not disappoint. Don’t be shy, keep asking for more baguettes and butter…you know you want to!
Cocktails at Bardessono
Lucy Restaurant and Bar at Bardessono is where it’s at! It is here where, patrons gather for happy hour before shuffling off to their dinner plans. The wine and cocktail list is extensive, and the “Nibbles and Bites” menu will tide you over before your reservation. If you dig fried food, order the beer battered onion rings and curl up next to a fire pit to enjoy.
Dinner at Redd
Reserve at Redd for a chic night on the town. This hip space is great for date night or groups alike. After you get your drink on, indulge in the crispy chicken thigh appetizer – your tastebuds will thank you later. The steak on top of potato purée and fried shallots is a great option for a hearty appetite. For a more laid back scene, cross the street for pizza at Redd Wood.
Sweet Treats from Bouchon Bakery
Satisfy your sweet tooth with freshly baked goods from Bouchon Bakery. Chocolate almond croissants, donuts, macarons, and caramel popcorn are just a handful of the many concoctions served up here. Wake up early or leave room for an afternoon pick-me-up to avoid the line. On a nice day, enjoy your pastries in the charming courtyard.
