Restoration Hardware's luxe new Yountville compound combines food, wine and retail #restorationhardware
It takes a certain confidence to open a new place to eat or drink in Yountville. The charming Napa Valley hamlet already boasts two Michelin starred-restaurants. So when Restoration Hardware acquired the historic Ma(i)sonry winery just down the road from the French Laundry, and then took out a restaurant permit, it seemed like a bold move. Was the Corte Madera company known for its Belgian linen sofas and doorstop-heavy catalogs getting into the wine business? The food business? Turns out, they want to get into the lifestyle business, big-time.
