What do you get when you combine yoga and food?

The answer: Ubuntu. Ubuntu Restaurant and Yoga Studio that is.

Inside UbuntuThis past Sunday we took the little one out to enjoy the warm sunshine and found ourselves wandering around downtown Napa. After we scooted past all the construction happening along the river from the Napa River Inn all the way to Downtown Joe’s, we found ourselves looking into a new (at least to us) business.

Ubuntu Restaurant and Yoga Studio opened in downtown Napa on August 16 (just two days before our little guy made his debut in this world, so forgive us if we missed it), bringing a unique twist to the valley dining scene. After popping our head in to snap the picture above, we checked out the menu and realized just how Ubuntu was looking to stand out from the many restaurants in the valley.

According to the website, Ubuntu features “…a delicious menu of daily-harvested organic food, with a focus on farm-fresh produce, much of it from our own biodynamic gardens.” The menu ‘celebrates vegetables’ vs. being vegetarian and Chef Jeremy Fox, formerly of Manresa, works to utilize local, farm-fresh ingredients whenever possible.

The interior of the building on Main Street has been completely re-done with an environmentally friendly design–ground level is the dining area, with an outdoor patio in the back, and upstairs is the yoga studio. You can check out a sample of the dinner menu here (warning, PDF).

Anyone visited Ubuntu for the food or yoga? If so, let us know what you thought in the comments.
