BottleRock Food Preview

BottleRock food is off the hook. Here's what we're looking forward to.

It seems almost cruel to be talking about Napa’s Bottlerock 2016 (May 25-27) since all the tickets are long gone, but hey, we’ll be there tasting and posting all the eats, drinks and spectularity on opening day if you’re stuck in the office. The music, food and wine festival, now in its fourth year, takes over the Napa Fairgrounds with four music stages, a dedicated culinary stage, 75 restaurants (including food trucks and pop-ups), 28 wineries and 26 breweries.

You know we’re here for the food, so here are a few highlights…

– High end restaurants including Redd, La Toque, Morimoto, Meadowood and Oenotri, Ca’momi, Angele, Cole’s Chophouse, Goose and Gander and Hurley’s bring their food to the people with grab and go eats throughout the festival.

– The trucks pull up with plenty of noshing from Me So Hungry, Dabba Indian food, Curry Up Now, Bowl’d Acai, Curry Up Now. Sonoma locals Tips Tri-Tip and The Farmer’s Wife represent.

– New to me: Waffles from Suite Foods, West Coast Frozen Kuhsterd, Bling Bling dumplings, vegan pop-up Jack in the Wild, Jeepney Guy Filipino, Sweet Puff organic cotton candy, and LA’s Sage Vegan Bistro.
