Fodor's Expert Review Morimoto Napa

$$$$ Napa Japanese

Iron Chef star Masaharu Morimoto is the big name behind this downtown Napa hot spot where everything is delightfully overdone, right down to the desserts. Organic materials such as twisting grapevines above the bar and rough-hewn wooden tables seem simultaneously earthy and modern, creating a fitting setting for the gorgeously plated Japanese fare, from sashimi served with grated fresh wasabi to elaborate concoctions that include sea-urchin carbonara made with udon noodles. For the full experience, leave the choice up to the chef and opt for the omakase menu ($120–$160).
