House of Better

1507 Lincoln Avenue, Calistoga, CA 94515, (707) 942-6257

With a green chile–infused menu unlike anywhere else in the Napa Valley, Calistoga’s House of Better (located at Dr. Wilkinson’s Resort) offers a tasty, playful spin on modern California comfort food. Dine on Southwestern cuisine outside under a colorful canopy and string lights as you sip better-for-you cocktails, local beers, and some of Napa’s finest wines. Our favorite touch? The “Backyard” lawn area’s wood-fired oven and authentic New Mexican Chile roaster.

Insider Tip: You’ll be doing yourself a favor if you save time for tea and pie—namely, the adaptogenic mushroom teas and their famous, daily fresh-baked Green Chile Apple Pie.
