Resaurant Preview: Napa Valley Grille - Fall Tasting Menu





Tonight I have the pleasure of join some of my fellow foodies at this seasons Media Preview at Napa Valley Grille in Westwood. Some of you may have caught the post about my first NVG experience which was nothing short of stellar, so you can imagine why I'm excited about what Chef Taylor Boudreaux has in store for us this evening! 
 
Inspired by the fall season, Chef Boudreaux incorporates wild and foraged items from Foods in Season (Washougal, WA) while continuing to source locally grown ingredients from Southern California family farms and artisan purveyors, including Drake Family Farms (Ontario, CA) and Country Fresh Herbs (Tarzana, CA).



Here's a glimpse of some of the dishes we will be enjoying tonight:


-  Fig and Prosciutto with Burrata Cheese and Grey Salt
-  Cajun BBQ Shrimp with Grilled Sourdough
-  Warm Brussels Sprout Salad with Poached Egg, Prosciutto, Toasted Pistachio, Manchego Cheese, and Red Wine Vinaigrette   
-  Wild White Sturgeon with Oyster Mushroom and Beurre Blanc
-  Lamb Ragu with housemade Pappardelle Pasta

Follow along tonight on Instagram for all the yummy details!
