Bottega – Yountville, CA
Michael Chiarello’s restaurant in the heart of Yountville is truly a gem and continues to be packed night after night even after being open for 2 years. It’s not uncommon to find Chef Chiarello making the rounds and greeting customers at tables. The setting is comfortable whether you’re setting at a booth or at a table. The open kitchen is always fun and let’s you see the beautiful team work that is responsible for the fabulous food. The menu is very seasonal so depending on when you go, don’t expect to see the same thing on the menu time and time again. Reservations are highly recommended otherwise you may find yourself eating at 10pm. Enjoy the couches and fire outside on the patio for some late night drinks and just relax!
