Fodor's Expert Review Evangeline

$$$ Calistoga Modern American Fodor's Choice
The gas-lamp-style lighting fixtures, charcoal-black hues, and bistro cuisine at Evangeline evoke old New Orleans with a California twist. Executive chef Gustavo Rios, whose previous stops include Calistoga's Solbar and Yountville's Bouchon Bistro, puts a jaunty spin on dishes that might include shrimp étouffée, duck confit, or steak frites; the elaborate weekend brunch, with everything from avocado toast to buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy, is an upvalley favorite.
