We were there in April and Wappo was open then.

Personally, I was very sad that Catahoula closed at the begining of the year. Also, what used to be the smokehouse, is now a Spanish (tapas) restaurant.

We had dinner at All Seasons and quite enjoyed our meal. One of the desserts was even "deconstructed", which was amusing to run into in Calistoga. We also had a nice breakfast at Hydro.

Heard some good things about Stomp (in the old Catahoula space in the Mt. View Hotel) just last week from a St. Helena resident who works at a Calistoga winery. It's on our list to try next time we're up.

Haven't tried Stomp, but I too hear good things about it. Be forewarned, Calistoga in August is HOT - average high is in the low-90s.

Yes, indeedy, it is quite warm up there.

I was in St. Helena a couple days last week, and the high temps were over 100 both days. It's a dry heat, though!

:laugh:

It was good to get back under my fog blanket!

Thanks, everyone... Looking forward to it...by the way, I live in hot, humid Canada where it is in the '90's, as we speak, so I think dry heat will be fine!

Did Wappo really close? It was one of my favorites, as was Catahoula's. Hey,90 degrees is nothin, we've been experiencing 108 degree weather here in the Central Valley. Can't wait to get over to the PNW for a couple of weeks! :)

Just got an e-mail from Wappo and they stated that they are open and plan to stay that way! That's great news! :)

annadev,

I found some articles that jogged my memory.

For a while the Wappo folks were running a latin american style restaurant in the train station (where the smokehouse was) called Wappo Taco. They have since re-themed the menu to more global latin cuisine and re-named that restaurant Fuentes Tapas.

That might have been what you heard about.
