R+D Kitchen in Yountville
The R+D Kitchen in Yountville was our lunch stop on Monday, October 19. We are visiting the Napa Valley for three days. The R+D Kitchen is the newest addition of the three R+D Kitchen restaurants operated by the Hillstone group. Hillstone also operates the ever popular Rutherford Grill just up the road from the R+D Kitchen in Yountville. The day was one of the most spectacular days in the Napa Valley. The temperature was moderate, but the large puffy white clouds made for a dramatic backdrop to the Valley. Unfortunately, the R+D Kitchen has a limited bar menu for outside patio dining. We decided inside would offer us a better fare for lunch. And indeed the lunch was delightful. Janelle had the Macho Salad, Gloria had the veggie club, and I had the special sandwich of the day: Swordfish with avocado crema and Baja slaw. Crazy delicious! The wine list is extensive and very reasonable. We shared a bottle of Frog’s Leap Chardonnay for $34. The service was excellent. The R+D Kitchen in Yountville is open for lunch and dinner, Monday-Thursday 11:30am-9:30pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10:30pm, Sunday 11am-9:30pm.
