You should know (if you hadn’t heard yet) that Napa Valley Restaurant Week is just one week away. Between January 20 and 27, over 50 Napa Valley restaurants are offering multi-course prix-fixe menus for lunch (at $20 or less per person) or dinner (at $36 or $46 per person). Lunch options include Sashimi, Fish Tacos, Mushroom and Fontina Bruschetta, Pastrami Sandwich or a Cheeseburger. Dinner options include Ceviche Tostada, Seared Diver Scallops, Braised Short Ribs, “Surf & Turf”, or a Cheeseburger. This is a great opportunity to explore the diversity of Napa Valley’s “Terroir to Table” Dining options, at a discount, from Napa to Calistoga.
In fact, this may actually be the perfect week to immerse yourself in Calistoga’s dining scene. You’ll find specials to try and navigate between All Seasons Bistro (lunch), Bosko’s Trattoria (lunch), Cafe Sarafornia (lunch), Calistoga Inn (lunch and dinner), Checkers (lunch and dinner), Evangeline (dinner), Hydro Grill (dinner), Lovina (lunch and dinner) and Sol Bar (dinner). Menu choices include Spaghetti and Meatballs at Bosko’s, Warm Duck Confit and Kale Salad at Lovina and Crispy Petrale Sole Fish Tacos at Sol Bar. At Calistoga Inn, lunch options include Duck Mole Tacos, dinner options include Skuna Bay Roasted Salmon, and it’s a good time to ask for the latest scoop on their March 5 Fat Tuesday Celebration.
If you’re in downtown Napa at lunchtime during Napa Valley Restaurant Week, at Napa General Store you can add either a Cup of Soup or a special Dessert to your choice of lunch entrée all for $20. These entrées include Chinese Chicken Salad, Rueben Sandwich and a Smoked Salmon Flatbread. At Napa Noodles, you can choose from Items #1 – #16 on the menu, grab a Fountain Drink and then add any Salad or Starter for that price. Between numbers 1 and 16 you’ll find options such as Tokyo Ramen, Pho Ga, Tom Yum Soup, Adobo Pancit and a Kalbi Short Rib Plate. Or, at Ca’ Momi, you can start with a Mixed Green Salad, select either a Wood Oven or Fried Calzone, and then end your meal with Tiramisu for $20.
