Calistoga Restaurant Week

Great food is abundant in the Napa Valley, and Calistoga certainly holds its own as a culinary destination. This quirky, small town is better known for its wine and wellness scene, but Calistoga is worth a visit for its gastronomic offerings alone. With everything from sold-out culinary events like the annual Calistoga Harvest Table, to over-the-top scenic patio dining, Calistoga’s menus are notable for using locally-sourced ingredients and chefs who add a delicious twist on Napa Valley cuisine.

Restaurant Week provides the perfect opportunity to explore the culinary scene of Calistoga with special offerings of two- and three-course prix fixe menus. From January 21-28, 2018, patrons could stop in to any of the restaurants listed below and request the Restaurant Week menu! Look for next year’s menus and date announcements in late 2018.

Evangeline’s menu features fresh, fun versions of bistro favorites like croque madame and Coq au Vin.  Standards such as assiette de fromages  and tour de fruits de mer are given new life in their interpretations by Chef Rios.  Most exciting, perhaps, are the ‘instant classics’ of our own making, like beef tartare and Shrimp Etouffee.  The menu layout is simple and clear, yet attractive and tempting.  The flavors are big, bold, beautiful, and yet sublime–but ”subtle” is not an adjective used to describe the food at Evangeline.
