At Charlie Palmer Steak Napa, Chef Russell draws on his vast experience with sustainable whole animal butchery and inventive charcuterie production to create a robust menu of prime steaks and chops. He will bring a selection of his signature dishes from Washington, D.C. including a Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, Classic Tuna Tartare and Lobster Corn Dogs,” said the magazine.

He’s reported to have plans to work with local producers and ranchers including Devil’s Gulch Ranch, Hidden Pond Farm, Oak Hill Farms, Bernier Farms and other — most of which are already favorites of Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg.
