Napa has a number of interesting dining options with a very wide price range. There’s also a good curious crowd, and wine bars rule. Especially wine bars offering good, reasonably-priced food. In Bounty Hunter, one need not agonize what to order. Their signature dishes will save the day without burning a hole in your pocket.
Beers on tap, 40 wines and a 30-page beverage list. How can you go wrong? After all, it was voted best wine bar in Napa Valley 5 times. And oh, that beer can-standing chicken looking so proud, arrogant and snobbish shouldn’t be missed. Pair that with a smokin’ platter of apple wood-smoked brisket, pulled pork and bbq’d ribs and you’ve got a meal to feed a family. You may order sandwiches and sides like cole slaw, chips, corn bread and salads to complete your meal.
I was so averse to eating more meat the day we dined here, and ordered a vegetarian sandwich. The grilled portobello, squash, pimiento and eggplant was a hit too. Of course I tried some of that chicken but none of the ribs and brisket. My friends seemed to have enjoyed the platter though. Oh yes, I also had the artisanal craft beer.
Next time you’re in the area, check out Bounty Hunter. It’s right in the heart of Downtown Napa. Happy hours or not, you’d enjoy the “western vibe” here. And don’t forget to snoop at the bbq pit just right outside the bar to see them chickens “standing in line”.
