The restaurant Meadowood has burned down, engulfed by the fast-moving Northern California wildfires that have forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate and burned homes and wineries. Journalist Adam Housley shared a photo of the burning building, with a firefighter looking on, writing it couldn’t be saved. Earlier today, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office told people to evacuate an area that included Meadowood resort immediately.
Run by the chef Christopher Kostow, Meadowood is one of this country’s more famous high-end restaurants. The three-Michelin-star spot is located on the resort of the same name in St. Helena in Napa, which has been devastated by the Glass Fire. Along with the many homes, seven vineyards have been destroyed or damaged, including Château Boswell on Sunday, and dozens of other wineries are within the evacuation or evacuation-warning areas.
