Five Napa Valley Restaurants Named to Michelin’s 2013 Bay Area Bib Gourmand list

Find out which Napa Valley restaurants made the coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand list for 2013.

It’s that time of year again–time for the annual Michelin Guide to the best Bay Area dining.

Earlier this week Michelin released its 2013 Bib Gourmand picks, with the Napa Valley checking in with five restaurants (down from seven in 2012).

According to a release, the 2013 Bib Gourmands “…were selected by Michelin’s esteemed and anonymous food inspectors and they represent restaurants that serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Most importantly, they are the restaurants that the company’s inspectors frequent themselves.”

The Napa Valley restaurants included on the 2013 list are:

Bistro Jeanty in Yountville
C Casa in Napa
Cook St. Helena in St. Helena
Oenotri in Napa
Redd Wood in Yountville

Which of the five are your favorites?

Great post, Trevor! Cool that C CASA, Cook and Oenotri were all on the list last year, too. Congratulations to all five and I can't wait to see the whole Michelin 2013 list.

I think Bistro Jeanty was also on the list last year; one of my favorite places!

Right you are, Gale! I am so excited to be coveting Yountville now, with all the great restaurants there. Did you see the article about R+D Kitchen opening up there in March? http://napavalley.patch.com/articles/rutherford-grill-owner-hillstone-plans-yountville-restaurant

Um, I meant "covering," not "coveting" in the above. I love Yountville, but I do not covet it. I think there's a commandment against that.

LOL, Louisa, you're so cute! That made me smile.

Thanks, Belle! If we can't laugh at our typos, we are lost.
