Goose & Gander
If you only have the time for one burger while you’re in Napa Valley, make it the one from G&G, made with a mountain of grass-fed beef, gruyère, bacon, and a lethal remoulade, all served with duck fat fries. For an even richer meal, you could add bone marrow on top and order the mushroom soup, a carryover from the previous, famed, tenant Martini House. When it’s warm out, the patio gets busy, but if you’re looking for a night out (or at least the St. Helena version of that), head down to the iconic basement bar and hang out with the locals. The drinks list is long and full of fancy options with floating flowers, like the Mellivora Capensis with honey, chili, black cardamom, and apple-coconut foam.
