Ah, the life of an innkeeper at a Napa Bed and Breakfast Hotel . . . all these new restaurants, and *someone* has to try them out—why not us?
If you ever had Todd Humphries' soup at Martini House (St Helena), you probably went into mourning when Martini House closed last fall. When we heard that two of the three original founders were eyeing the Oxbow for a new restaurant, we kept our fingers crossed.
And then it got better: We'd heard that not only was this new restaurant (walking distance from our Inn) going to happen-- but that Martini House alumni Todd Humphries (executive chef), Christopher Litts (chef de cuisine), and Tim Sebersen (general manager) were all on board.
(we first met-- and loved-- Tim when he managed Julia's Kitchen at Copia. Welcome back to Napa, Tim!)
We just got a sneak peek at the menu . . .
Korean Short Ribs? Mushroom pasta? Armenian Pizza with spiced ground lamb?
. . . so many more incredibly yummy items.
And yes -- the mushroom soup is BACK!
Due to open next week, Tuesday, June 14 (Locals Night!)
Stay tuned for more pix and a foodie review!
