As of yesterday, in the great Glass Fire that started in Napa Valley, California, the world-famous 3 Michelin star Restaurant at Meadowood burned to the ground.
The Restaurant at Meadowood, a three-Michelin-star restaurant inside the St. Helena luxury resort, was completely destroyed by the Glass Fire that has destroyed at least seven area wineries and burned over 36,236 acres. Chef Christopher Kostow, who has worked in the restaurant’s kitchen for more than 10 years, wrote on Instagram, “We are all torn apart,” he wrote. “A Eulogy is deserved, and will be given in due time… for now, I want to thank all of the TRAMily that have ever graced this magical space—and all of the guests over the years who have enjoyed the efforts of these multitudes. What an honor it has been. Martina and I wish our broader, Napa community safety and courage during this devastating time.”
Brett Anderson, a spokesperson for Meadowood parent company Pacific Union, told the Bay Area News Group late Monday that if Meadowood was destroyed — as it almost certainly is — longtime owners the Harlan family and the Kroenke family “are committed to the property. Whatever it takes to rebuild and reopen, we’ll do.”
