Tyler Florence Shutters Rotisserie & Wine in Napa Rotisserie & WinePhoto: Grub Street When it opened in 2010, Rotisserie & Wine was seen as the first of many locations of a potentially national brand by budding restaurateur Tyler Florence. But now Florence has announced that the flagship location of his casual concept in Napa's Riverwalk complex will not be reopening after a winter hiatus that was billed as a quick remodel.
Piatti Ristorante & Bar, Mill Valley This Cal-Italian restaurant, one of six locations in Northern California, has been a fixture beside Marin's Richardson Bay for nearly 15 years, but a major remodeling in 2008 opened up an enlarged bar area and the waterside view. It's primarily a dining spot, but when the sun is out, the bar scene is tough to beat. Sit on the outside deck with a cocktail and watch the birds on one side and the flirts on the other. The vibe: White marble and dark wood trim with huge windows provide an airy feel, with wide views of the water and the Mill Valley hillsides nearby. The U-shaped bar takes up the center of the building.
Kudos from a Previous Guest: "Please know how thrilled we (and ALL the guests!) were with our fantastic evening and experience at piatti's!!! Wow - where to start? Lovely venue (tide was up and sun was out and mountain was gleaming), food - wow! raves from all!!! And your staff - couldn't have been any better!!! Ristorante & Bar
Welcome to Pine Ridge Vineyards - Napa Valley Stags Leap District This appellation was one of the first in the United States to be approved distinguished by its distinctive soil. Our four vineyards here take advantage of the coarsely eroded loam and clay soils and the bare rocks that heat the district during the day yet cool quickly at night when breezes from the rugged Pacific Coastline enter the valley. Rutherford Prized Cabernet Sauvignon wines have been synonymous with the Rutherford Appellation since the mid 1800s, and the varietal now represents more than half of the planted acreage in Rutherford. The district is characterized by well-drained alluvial-fan soils: gravel sand and loam. The wines grown here are so distinctive that the phrase “Rutherford Dust” was coined in an effort to define the elusive qualities of the renowned terroir.
