Restaurant at Meadowood

Californian in St Helena

If you couldn’t score reservations at French Laundry, fear not: Meadowood – the valley’s only other three-Michelin-star restaurant – has a slightly more sensibly priced menu, elegantly unfussy dining room and lavish haute cuisine that’s not too esoteric. Auberge has better views, but Meadowood’s food and service far surpass it.
