It’s mid-week and there’s plenty of Napa Valley news out there. Without further delay, here are a couple stories worth calling to your attention…

A review of Cindy Pawlcyn’s Go Fish
Go Fish, long one of our favorite sushi and seafood restaurants in the valley, was reviewed by the San Francisco Chronicle today. Here’s a quick excerpt:

The vibe: A striking blue, black and white decor speaks of fresh seafood. If there are any doubts, just take a peek at the sushi case of glistening fish or rows of oysters and clams behind the bar.

The crowd: Upscale yet family friendly, even at the bar. Small children color with crayons and nibble on spider rolls of soft shell crab and tobiko ($12), while adults sip the Venge Scout’s Honor Napa Valley Zinfandel ($16 glass) and sup on Napa Cabernet braised beef short ribs ($26).

In addition to some killer sushi and imaginative seafood, we’re also big fans of the extensive wine list, which includes some great local sparkling wines by the glass and one of our favorite all-time Sauvignon Blanc’s from Cliff Lede Vineyards.

Budget Travel shares Napa Valley’s ‘top secrets’
Earlier this week Budget Travel published an article detailing Napa Valley’s ‘top secrets’, which has driven quite a lot of discussion on Twitter. All told the article offers up 20 tips that promise to help you ‘lose the masses’ when you visit.

We really didn’t find anything too Earth-shattering on the list. In fact, secret number three is a walking wine tasting tour in downtown Napa, something we wrote and mapped out for you way back in January 2008 (guess it’s high time we give that itinerary an update).

Regardless, check out the full list of ‘secrets’ for yourself.
