St. Helena, Napa Valley - Goose & Gander

After a long day of wine tasting in Napa Valley, there comes a point where you just need to sink your teeth into some good old rustic American fare. We headed for dinner to Goose & Gander, which describes itself as a wine country public house. The dining room is dark, moody and pub like, complete with a basement bar and an outdoor patio.

We dove into:

Grilled California Sturgeon:

Shaved Artichokes, Green Garlic, Piccolo Farro, Oyster Mushrooms, and Roasted Lemon:

The G&G Burger:

Grass Fed Beef, Gruyere Cheese, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Duck Fat Fries:

Root vegetable medley:

And some chocolate cake for my last birthday wish of the day:

I can imagine the patio in summer is a lovely place to dine al fresco, and its certainly cozy in the dining room in the winter months. I'm still dreaming about that burger ...

  1. I love St. Helena, one of my favorite spots in Napa Valley. I use to live up on the Hill in Angwin.

  2. Lucky you! It certainly is stunning. xx
