Well Hallelujia! It's nice to see a fresh face, so to speak!

I enjoyed reading about your dining choices and look forward to reading the posts about wineries, both here and in Sonoma

Hi, I don't post much (or at all really), but I do lurk and collect a bunch of hints and tips. We just returned from a week in Napa and Sonoma, and I wanted to dribble a little info to the boards. Here are our eats in Napa.

Bistro Jeanty, first visit. Nice intimate place, certainly the French theme comes through. We had coq a vin and pork shoulder. Good stuff. We had been warned by some friends that you can leave there Thanksgiving full, and they weren't joking. They had a half bottle of Rhone wine which was nice after a full day.

Brix. first visit. Great place. Deal of the valley is the pizza. Holy heck for 14 bucks it was awesome. Wife had a pasta dish that was also good. For wine we had another half bottle, this one a cab franc blend from Virage. Went good with the meal. Really enjoyed the whole experience, it was chilly and they seated us by the fireplace.

Press. Second visit here. Great place, definitely recommend this one. We split the NY Strip. Cooked perfectly, they split it for us. Sides were good (though forgotten) and we had another half bottle, this time a Black Chicken (Robert Biale was a first time winery visit this trip).

Coles Chop House. Second visit here. Yummy. My parented joined us for dinner. Three small filets and a pork chop. Hashbrowns, brussel sprouts, and broccoli. Full bottle of the Black Chicken. Great place, great food. Really enjoy that place.

Highlight of the lunches was Tacos Garcia in Yountville in the parking lot of Panchas (see below). We had tacos and a burrito, which we ate in the rental car during a downpour. Who cared, great grub. We also grabbed sandwiches a couple times at the Soda Canyon Store, which is always fun. A midday Bud Light and a sandwich always goes good for me. We also hit Mustard's and split a burger. Always a good time (PBR for that, I go higher class there)

Other non-wine stops:

We stayed at the Silverado Resort and had breakfast twice there, which is always good. We also went to Napa and had breakfast sandwiches at Joe's Downtown. Always fun to hit a bar for breakfast. Strong smell of cleaner inside (must have been a good night) so we sat outside. We went back to Joe's for a pre dinner beer one night, and were not impressed. The staff was sort of non-helpful, simply pressuring us to order something at the bar, rather than engaging us about their brews. Will not go back.

Panchas was the best. We loved going there either before or after dinner for a beer. PBR in plastic cups cannot be beat. Enjoyed the flashback of smelling like an ashtray in the car on the way to the hotel. Cool place. Felt like digging deep in the college t-shirts for a throwback jersey of sorts to wear.

I plan to get some winery visit notes up as well, and Sonoma County food and wine as well in the coming days.
