Included in this week’s Inside Scoop column is the news that Charlie Palmer is opening another Wine Country restaurant — and it’s going to be in downtown Napa.
Palmer, who recently opened Harvest Table in St. Helena’s Harvest Inn, will be opening a branch of his Charlie Palmer Steak in Napa’s forthcomingArcher Hotel Napa (1300 First St.).
It will be the fifth location of Charlie Palmer Steak, joining outposts in DC, New York, Reno and Las Vegas. The menu (click here for an example) is an updated version of a steakhouse bill of fare, with dishes like a foie gras with bread pudding, prosciutto-wrapped romaine hearts, Ritz Cracker stuffed Maine lobster and of course, a medley of steaks.
Palmer will also run the rooftop bar/pool area at the self-described “uniquely Napa, luxury boutique” hotel, which is slated to open in fall 2016.
