La Toque restaurant
My wife and I had dinner at La Toque and the experience was nothing short of spectacular. Chef Ken Frank and his award winning La Toque was named one of the “Best Restaurants in America” by The Wine Spectator. La Toque was also awarded a prestigious Michelin Star. The multiple menu choices consist of modern French cuisine and the restaurant’s wine program is without equal in Napa Valley.
We selected three savory dishes for our meal. For starters, we had “Japanese Hamachi, Avocado and Asian Pear with Yuzu Kizami Emulsion and Dashi Gel” and “Seafood Pot au Feu with Matsutake and Local Dungeness Crab.” Next we enjoyed “New England Skate Wing with Candied Eggplant, Pine Nuts and Brown Butter” and “Ricotta Chick Pea Ravioli in a Parmesan Wild Mushroom Broth.” Our main dish included “Slow Coked Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Braised Napa Cabbage and Heirloom Apples” and “Liberty Farm Duck Breast and Leg.”
The entire 5-star experience was top notch …. from the talented chef and kitchen staff, attentive and helpful restaurant employees, to the knowledgeable sommelier’s suggested dinner wine pairing. The restaurant’s ambiance was ideal. The lights were dimmed enough to create an idyllic setting, and the overall, dining atmosphere was not stuffy like other upscale restaurants.
After we finished our delicious desserts, we both agreed that this was truly one of the best meals and dining experiences we’ve ever had. To Chef Ken Frank, our evening was “simply incredible.”
The Westin Verasa Napa is highly recommended and caters to a wide variety of guests from romantic stays, family getaways or girlfriend retreats, to weddings, banquets and corporate meetings. From wonderful accommodations and service plus terrific dining, add this luxury Napa hotel to your “must stay” list.
