If you want to have a fantastic meal, at a "fairly" reasonable price I suggest going over to the CIA's (Culinary Institute of America) Greystone campus in St. Helena.

The Wine Spectator restaurant is wonderful and while students are preparing the meals the instructors oversee everything they do. I believe you do need to make reservations.

The CIA is the premier culinary school in the U.S.

Mark Erickson, the V.P. of education and Managing Director of Greystone is a friend of mine. We both started cooking for Radisson. He made me realize that I had a decent cooking ability but not the "talent" to be a great chef.

Take care,
