Trevor Kunk, who served as chef de cuisine at Dan Barber’s Blue Hill, is now behind the line at Press in St. Helena. The restaurant boasts an all-Napa wine list, and as one might expect from the farm-focused chef, Kunk is reportedly already bonding with local producers over vegetables and pasture-raised meat. The restaurant isn’t so much undergoing an overhaul as it is trying to concentrate even more on the region. “We’re building it out to be the quintessential Napa Valley restaurant,” general manager Spencer Weiss tells Inside Scoop.
