napa


during our stay in sonoma last week, we
stopped through napa to explore.
these two towns are so close
and always associated, but very
different in style. they do both
have great food though!
we only explored for a day,
but made plans to come back
and focus more on napa
next time. we did find one
favorite restaurant,
grace’s table.
we loved oxbow
market + all
the cute shops, and
the sunny streets.
we’ll be back
soon, napa!
^^ i guess this is the facial expression
i come up with when i’m starving.
luckily we ate {a lot} right after!
^^ we tried out the most delicious
restaurant, grace’s table. don’t you love
the name? there are so many different kinds
of food on the menu, and everything is so fresh.
the chef came down and talked to us, and we loved
getting to know him. he has his own garden and
makes everything so fresh. we tried the iron skillet
cornbread with lavender honey butter—one of my
favorite things i’ve tried! that honey butter…wow.
^^ beet + avocado salad.
the best, freshest flavors.
even chase was raving
about this salad!
handmade tamales.
we are STILL FULL!
^^ we didn’t have time to try this place,
but we set up a time to come back the next
time we visit this spring..napa has so much
to offer, and since we did more of sonoma
this visit we can’t wait to go back to napa!
thanks to grace’s table for setting the bar
high for our next foodie visit to napa!

    We went to napa/sanoma for a day trip and spent more time in sanoma – so we are similarly looking to focus more Napa the next time around!! Can’t wait to try out some of those places!!

    so i know that your blog is travel centered, but i was thinking as i looked at your cute yellow blouse that you should do a fashion/clothes post sometime :) tell us about your fav clothing shops and such. just an idea! xo

    Such amazing foods! I loved visiting Sonoma because of the smaller feel as compared to Napa. Can’t wait to go back!
