Chef's Blog

Solage Calistoga's Executive Chef Brandon Sharp shares his passion for cooking, life and all things Napa Valley.

“Who says the food at a spa resort has to be plain and boring?  The menu at Solbar is lusty and full-flavored, with hearty pizzas, short ribs and other substantial fare, and emphasizes organic ingredients.  Menu items not to be missed include mini-burgers stacked with bacon, cheddar and onions, and “lucky pig,” a small build-it-yourself buffet of slow roasted pork, lettuce cups and sesame crepes with pickled pineapple and Mongolian peanuts.  The cavernous dining room has a chic country fell and can get a bit noisy at times.  The wine list has a modest 200 offerings of mostly California wines, but they’re wisely selected.”
