Playing Kitchen in Napa Valley, California

Alejandro Benes
Posted: July 30, 2008

(continued from page 2)

And there's BakerStreet, with three tables on a small, cigar-friendly patio outside the front door, all the reason one needs to stay in Napa next time there's a visit to the wine country. Did I mention that they also sell double-nine dominoes?

About 25 cigar lovers were at the Davidoff night at the BakerStreet event. Brenda Roberts greeted everyone. There was a lot of laughing. Wines were served and so were Venezuelan arepas. I smoked a Winston Churchill robusto and relished just being able to get off my feet and sit in a big leather chair and watch everyone delight in the hospitality.

Alejandro Benes is a partner in a group of award-winning restaurants in Southern California.
