Subject: Re: French Laundry restaurant in Napa
Hi Robin,

Well, your mail got bounced by my spam killer because of the word 'porn' - haha, but I rescued it! I know what you mean - I have a lot of good cookbooks with good intentions for when I have more time!

Well, I've not lived in Napa for a few years now, so I won't be a lot of help as far as Bistro Jeanty - I believe that is in Yountville, but I've not eaten there, and haven't heard any comments from friends still living there. One of my old time favorites is Domaine Chandon, which is located within a winery, and the food and service is really great. Also, the Napa Valley Grille in Yountville, just north of the town of Napa.

A place for a really special meal with a lovely view of the valley, and great for sunset is Auberge du Soleil - well worth the price! I love that place! Another tasty place, rather casual is Piatti's in Yountville and the Rutherford Grill in Rutherford. Bouchon is good, Mustards is good, but somewhat over rated as is Brix.

Hope this helps.
