While it may be set smack dab in the midst of quaint Yountville, Thomas Keller's take on the lively French bistro paints a scene that may as well be straight out of Paris. Picture red velvet booths, marble tables, polished brass, and that iconic tiled floor. Then throw in a buzzy scene dominated by bon vivants, a next-door bakery that ensures bread here reigns supreme, and the result is spot on. The kitchen keeps the mood upbeat thanks to a litany of well-crafted plates. Start by slathering butter onto a hunk of pain d'epi, before moving on to crispy roasted chicken over corn with bacon lardons and oyster mushrooms. Seasonal bites, like the rustic tomato, are worth a second look; while desserts like a lemon tart exude all things luxe.
