Over the weekend, I finally had a chance to give myself some much needed R&R. It was fun and relaxing to visit Napa and my favorite bakery, Bouchon. Of course what is a mini vacation without food right?! I found a new place to eat in Napa by accident. We discovered Bottega by chance while waiting for seating at Mustard. SO, instead luncheon at Mustard, we went to Bottega after a woman claimed it was one of the best meals she had in a long time.
That woman was correct. The meal was fantastic and the environment was cozy. We had lunch outside in the patio. First, yummy warm bread was served with age Parmigiano-Reggiano, olive oil, spice and herb dip.
Meal was delicious!!! Skirt steak with arugula and fries was SOOOOOO.... good. I would totally order it again.
Last but not least, what is a trip to Napa without a visit to Bouchon bakery to pick up my favorite raspberry macaron, right?! Since I was stuffed from lunch, I was not able to eat the macaron immediately thus it was crushed in my bag. Regardless of the condition, it was GOOD! Where do you like to go when you need a little R&R?
