Yountville with its six Michelin stars is reputed to have the highest number of these twinklers per capita than any other place on this earth. With its tiny population of 2,933, per the 2010 US census (about 800 in this number living in The California Veterans Home), and six stars it isn’t hard to understand this math.
The French Laundry leads all with three stars, its fifth successive year doing so, and single stars for Redd, Bouchon and Etoile at Domaine Chandon. There were two restaurants awarded the new Inspectors Favourites for Good Value, Bottega and Bistro Jeanty.
Add to this the local’s favorites Pacific Blues and Hurleys; Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc, Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery; Philippe Jeanty’s Bistro Jeanty; Cantinetta Piero; and the soon to come R+D Kitchens and Frank Altamura’s new pizza joint, are you foodies salivating yet.
All this and the charm of Yountville. Can you better understand why I always call this place a true enclave, a slice of Heaven?
