If you’re going to blow your calorie budget on your birthday, might as well go big or go home 🙂
The market is like the Ferry Building in San Francisco but on a smaller scale. It’s a big upscale mall in a warehouse lined with food booths, gourmet meat and cheese counters, spice and culinary counters and small Wine County shops.
Ca’ Momi Enoteca, which is one of several places to eat there, serves traditional Italian food (they’re actually certified as authentic by the Italian government!), and it is LA BOMBA.
While we were up there in Napa, we also found a great Japanese (modern style with a large eclectic menu) place downtown called Eiko’s, about a 10-minute walk from the Oxbow Public Market.
I learned that Napa has A LOT of good places to eat and a great walking downtown.
In all the years I’ve lived here (more than 10), we’ve actually only been to the town of Napa twice! — because the other time we unknowingly went to kind of a boring area. We usually go to other small towns in the area. I definitely want to go back to Napa now, though. It was yummage to the extreme.
