Bistro Jeanty ****
Description & Atmosphere
This charming little French Bistro, with red and white striped awnings,
is nestled in the heart of Yountville in Napa Valley. Chef-owner
Phllippe Jeanty previously Executive Chef at Domaine Chandon
for 20 years opened Bistro Jeanty in 1998 and today it's more
popular than ever.
The restaurant has a lovely homey atmosphere and the decor is authentically
French. It reminds us of Toutoune,
one of our favorite restaurants in Paris.
Classic brasserie-style French food and recreations of Jeanty's
favorite childhood dishes have put Bistro Jeanty on Napa's culinary
map. The food is, without a doubt, some of the best in Napa Valley,
so it is no surprise to us that the restaurant has consistently
won awards for its fine regional French cuisine.
The Creme de Tomate en Croute Tomato Soup in Puff Pastry
appetizer is sensational. It's like opening a present. First you
pierce the pastry with your spoon, then discover the creamy tomato
soup beneath it. This dish alone is worth a trip to Bistro Jeanty!
Main courses include Jeanty's classic Steak Frites Rib Eye
Steak, French Fries and Bernaise Sauce, Sole Meuniere Sole
with Mashed Potatoes and Lemon Caper Sauce, Moules au Vin Rouge
Mussels Steamed in Red Wine, Coq au Vin Chicken, Mushrooms,
Bacon, Red Wine Stew and a variety of other delectable entrees and
Desserts are great too if you still have the room. We like
the Chocolate Creme Brulée or the Montbriac (a creamy Blue
Cheese), one of the menu's three cheese selections.
