These Sonoma/ Napa County Restaurants are the LEAST likely to be serving GMOs.
These restaurants have said that they do not use any of the suspect GMO oils or ingredients and are using most if not all certified organic and/or local food. This does not mean that these restaurants are 100% GMO Free. It just means you have the best chance of avoiding most GMOs if you eat at these restaurants in comparison to other restaurants. Restaurant Ingredients change ALL the time, don't take our word for it, ask questions yourself to confirm if items below are still organic and non gmo and take our GMO ingredient list with you to know what to ask. Please email us if you get different info than what is listed here. Please be mindful with condiments and drinks at these restaurants, most of the research I have done is around food ingredients. Thank you to these restaurants for being so fully committed to health, organics, and supporting local farmers!
Three Twins Ice Cream - Oxbow Market- Downtown Napa - Organic, Non GMO ice cream shop.
Ca'Momi - Napa Valley - Here is what their menu says, I have contacted them and am waiting to hear back on more specifics. "Our produce is local and organic, and a large portion of it is grown in our gardens. Most of our cheeses are imported from Italy. Cured meats are either imported from Italy or sourced from Creminelli. Our eggs and dairy are Clover Stornetta organic. Our meats are organic and locally sourced. Our mushrooms are organic and delivered fresh from Wine Forest Wild Mushrooms."
These Sonoma/ Napa County Restaurants might be serving some GMO suspected ingredients, but you may still be able to get a non gmo meal here.
Farmstead Restaurant - St. Helena - Napa - They raise their own 100% grass fed Scottish Longhorn cattle, and they have their own organic vegetable gardens and winery too. It’s a beautiful restaurant too, and the food is fabulous. They use rice bran oil in their fryers. Someone emailed me recently and said Farmstead is using Farm raised fish, the pork is gmo fed, the sugar and chocolate is gmo, and the dairy may not be organic either. Avoid: Pork, Fish, Dairy, and Sugar to avoid GMOs here. Update 11/18.16 Someone emaled the chef and the chef now said there are too many possible GMO ingredients to list, so this may not be the best place to avoid GMOs anymore.
Bardessono/ Lucy Restaurant- Yountville - This is the restaurant at the Eco-friendly Leed Certified luxurious Bardessono hotel and spa. I have sent several emails to them and am waiting to hear back on my questions. Pretty sure they are still using CCOF organic pasture raised chicken from Barrett Farms. I spoke to the Chef about a year ago and it sounds like they were mostly organic and local except for GMO canola oil.
