Fodor's Expert Review Miminashi

$$$ Napa Japanese Fodor's Choice
Japanese izakaya—gastropubs that serve appetizers downed with sake or cocktails—inspired chef Curtis Di Fede's buzz-worthy downtown Napa restaurant, where two peaks in the slatted poplar ceiling echo Shinto and Buddhist temple designs. Ramen, fried rice, and yakitori anchor the menu, whose highlights include wok-fried edamame and the ooh-inspiring okonomiyaki pancake with bacon, cabbage, and dried fermented tuna flakes; wines and sakes selected by Jessica Pinzon, formerly of Thomas Keller's Yountville restaurants Bouchon and Ad Hoc, further elevate Di Fede's dishes.
