Restaurant Review: La Toque, Napa Valley, California

Hello and happy Monday!  Last week, I shared two posts with our adventures in Napa Valley:  Weekend Getaway: Napa Valley & Morimoto and Weekend Getaway: Napa Valley Oysters & Wine Tasting.  Today will be my final post from our trip: a foodie review of the Michelin star rated Ken Frank restaurant La Toque.  La Toque is located in the Westin Verasa Napa, right downtown.  There are so many amazing restaurants in Napa Valley, and La Toque has been on our list to try.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to dine here on Saturday evening before we headed home Easter morning.  Check out the photos of each dish below!
