La Taberna has opened in downtown Napa, a much-anticipated new restaurant from the ZuZu tapas crew. Inspired by the Pintxo bars of Northern Spain, its a modern take on the classic Spanish tavern. The menu will include dishes like tortilla de camaron, ceviches, empanadas, and halibut croquetas. Open daily from 2pm to 11pm and until midnight Friday and Saturday. 815 Main St., Napa, 707-224-5551.
Restaurant and Wine Bar 1313 Main in Napa has debuted a new menu, after last summer’s chef change-up. Executive Chef Adam Ross has created a creative menu that includes poutine (beef-fat (!) fries with oxtail gravy and cheese curds, $12) to crispy pork trotters with quail eggs ($15), lavender-smoked duck breast with pickled huckleberries ($24), along with lamb chops with harissa jus and lime yogurt ($21), King salmon and dayboat scallops. The bar snacks menu (with the poutine, a burger, and oysters) is half off during happy hour. In addition to wines by the glass, flight or bottle, 1313 Main also has an extensive collection of beer and ciders (though, boo for not having any local cidersUpdate, they do have some local ciders, according to insiders) , spirits and port.
