Napa: Food

If Napa’s Milky Way of Michelin stars (14 to Sonoma’s 7) doesn’t light up your dining dreams, there are more modest ways to absorb vino in the valley. Like the cheeseburger at Gott’s Roadside that wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr. called the best on the planet. Or the hungry person’s romp through Oxbow Public Market. But should you have an opportunity to break bread at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, the best restaurant in the country, maybe the world, you do it. No questions asked.
