BREAKING: Michael Chiarello Opening Yountville Resto

A celebrity chef is treading on Thomas Keller territory, as Eater has learned that Michael Chiarello will be opening a new restaurant in Yountville, almost next door to Bouchon (and its little bakery, too!). The new Chiarello restaurant will be housed within the complex now know as the V Marketplace—once known as Vintage 1870—in the current space occupied by V Wine Cellars, which will be moving to a new space in the front of the marketplace. Details are still trickling in, but if we had to wager a wacky guess, we'd suppose that the cuisine will be classic Chiarello Californian.

Since founding Tra Vigne in the '80s, Chiarello has become one of the better known celebrity chefs in the country, with his two television shows (Easy Entertaining on Food Network, NapaStyle on Fine Living) and his Napastyle cookware store in Berkeley. He lives on his St. Helena vineyard with his family, a short drive up Highway 29 from Yountville, so it seems logical that he'll be fairly involved in the day-to-day at his new restaurant.
