Twice within a month friends came into town and both times they chose The Corner as the restaurant of destination. Only a fifteen minute walk from The Inn On First, a Napa Valley luxury bed and breakfast. The Corner provides a hip, casual atmosphere with an uptick in scale on the food. They take great American classics and make them into something wonderfully delicious and fun.
Garden Beets with Candied Pecans, oh my. Pork Belly with Peach Mostarde, mm-mm good. Foie Gras with Pistachio Butter on Brioche, a slice of heaven. For main courses, they provide enough choices for meat and fish eaters to find something to please the palate: Squid Ink Tagliatelle with Mussels (yes, your teeth will turn black as you sop up every morsel), Sturgeon with Eggplant Raviolo, and Duck Breast with Pinot Lacquer and Cherry Juice.
When you want American basics with a high touch of class and distinction, this is the place to eat.
