Came upon an old folder filled with menus from when I was a California critic. I’ll be posting them over the next few days. This one, from The Trellis Restaurant in Williamsburg caught my eye. Marcel Desaulniers (despite his name, he’s an American-born chef), has since sold the restaurant. But he remains famous for, among other things, a cake called Death by Chocolate. (It was not on the menu in 1983.)
With its three Michelin stars, Meadowood is now a much more exalted restaurant than it was in 1983. But it’s always been good – it was always a favored place for local winemakers to take clients to dinner – and is still one of the dreamier places to stay in the Napa Valley.
