Earlier this week, Michelin released its annual list of top local eateries, starting first with its 2016 Bib Gourmand honorees. As a reminder, the Bib Gourmand includes eateries that offer excellent food at a reasonable price.
The San Francisco Bay Area saw 74 total establishments make the cut, 4 fewer than last year. So, how did Napa Valley fare?
Last year Napa had seven eateries on the Bib Gourmand list and 2016 is no different. The only change to the Napa Valley list was the removal of C Casa (Napa) and the addition of Farmstead (St. Helena).
In order to receive a Bib Gourmand designation, restaurants must serve two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included). Here are the 2016 lucky seven:
Bistro Jeanty (Yountville)
Cook St. Helena (St. Helena)
Farmstead (St. Helena)
Graces Table (Napa)
Redd Wood (Yountville)
The Farmer & The Fox (St. Helena)
