Can I just say "WOW?!"
Mike and I decided that Napa Valley would be a perfect place to celebrate his 40th birthday. We left the kids with Nana and Poppi and headed out for a wonderful, relaxing long weekend.
After a fun traffic-filled commute through San Fran (Side note: How can you people stand it?!?!) We arrived in neighboring Yountville to the Vintage Inn.
|Not our exact room but pretty close. Amazing.|
We walked through the village and even scored some free wine/chocolate at a local shop.
Then dinner at Bistro Jeanty:
|Voila. (Isn't that French?)|
I'm not going to lie. I was a bit frightened at the menu.
*Pork Shoulder (Hmmmm...)
*Blood Sausage (*Frowny Face*)
*Duck Confit (Ew.)
*Veal Kidneys (OMG.)
*Rabbit pâte (Mkay. I just threw up in my mouth a little.)
Already then. Butter lettuce salad and steamed mussels it is!
Both were excellent. I was even brave and took a bite of Mike's Pigs Feet. Not too bad.
Our chocolate Crème brûlée dessert = AMAZING
