Foodshed Take Away

Pizza to go from Foodshed Take Away in Napa. 

Visit Napa Valley’s annual Restaurant Week program has been adapted to highlight takeout and delivery options throughout the valley. It will run from Jan. 11 to Feb. 14, with each week spotlighting one town.

As much of California shelters in place and the restaurant industry continues to struggle in the wake of coronavirus restrictions, the program invites the local community to help keep Napa Valley restaurants open — and neighbors working — by ordering takeout or delivery.

It begins this week featuring take-out specials in American Canyon.

The following schedule is:

  • Jan. 18–24, Napa
  • Jan. 25–31, Yountville
  • Feb 1–7, St. Helena
  • Feb. 8-13, Calistoga

The final day of Napa Valley Restaurant Week(s) To Go, Valentine’s Day, will spotlight romantic dining options throughout the valley.

La Toque to go

“Stay positive, test negative” is Chef Ken Frank’s message to his fans for the beginning of 2021. “We need to remain vigilant until the positivity rate comes back down, and we get vaccinations administered in sufficient numbers so that we can all feel safe again.”

He adds, “Encouraged by our success with both Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve to-go kits, we’re going to go all-in for our ‘39th Annual All Black Truffle Tasting Menu’, offering an over-the-top, truffles-till-you-drop meal kit to-go beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 13. It will be available Wednesday through Sunday nights for two weeks. As always, this menu will feature fresh truffles in every course, from the amuse-bouche through the mignardises, even truffle-infused butter to spread on your bread.”

They provide detailed instructions, pictures, and a series of short videos to help you finish and plate up a restaurant-quality meal.

They are also offering family meals to go as well as items from the Bank Cafe menu.

Frank concludes, “While I’d love to promise that we’ll be reopened by Valentine’s Day, what I can promise is that we’ll be ready with a fantastic and romantic to-go option if that’s what we need to do.”

Place orders to go at www.exploretock.com/latoque/. The restaurants are in the Westin Verasa Hotel at 1314 McKinstry St., Napa.
