Visit Napa Valley


Archetype exudes the passion and love of owners Ann and Howard Backen who relish the relationship between design, community, and exquisite cuisine. The luxurious dining room redesigned a few years ago from the former French Blue Restaurant, still maintains a rustic element, bringing all of the senses together comfortably to the table. The inspiring menu is comprised of hyper-local, seasonal & sustainable ingredients with a freshness not seen elsewhere in the Napa Valley. Executive Chef Anthony Paone’s new menu is fresher, cleaner and greener, offering nutrient-dense dishes that might otherwise only be seen on a spa menu. Protein dishes are similarly feel-good food; all of the fish, poultry, and meat items are sourced from farms that treat the animals, sea life and workers with ultimate respect. Let the thoughtful design and the power of a shared meal at Archetype elevate your spirit.
