I loved my time in the valley but never really found a place that blew me away. Maybe that was my mistake because I expected more. For years I always thought about how the other side lived (laundry, roux, danko etc.). I made my reservations and planned out my trip and was not satisfied after I left, food wise that is. Coming from the NJ/NY area I have been spoiled with an endless worldly tastes and styles and found Napa to be like an upscale Lambertville/New Hope. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the Cali flare, but it could never compare to the richness on Manhattan and even suburbia NJ. Thoughts anyone?
