Way back in January we told you a new taqueria was coming to Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa.
At the time C Casa had only announced plans to open this Spring. Now diners will soon be enjoying fresh tacos, salads, small plates and rotisserie food in just a few days.
Late Sunday afternoon we caught up with owner Catherine Bergen as she busily put some finishing touches on the interior space, which she told us is slated to open May 10th.
We caught a glimpse of the menu, which includes ‘unique tacos’ such as the grilled garlic citrus prawns with corn relish, avocado tomatillo salsa and cilantro ($6.50) and ‘small plates’ such as the corn edamame salad with zucchini, red bells, cotija cheese and Meyer lemon olive oil ($4.00).
Having sold her Made in Napa Valley brand some two years ago, Bergen told us after creating products ‘in the bottle’ for so long, she was looking for a chance to do something different, something fresh. To that end, C Casa will make everything on the premises from fresh ingredients and Bergen was particularly excited about the planned use of micro-greens.
Bergen also pointed us to a very rudimentary website for her new taqueria, which can be found here.
The opening comes at a time when Oxbow has several vacancies, the most notable of which is at the southern end of the market in the large space previously occupied by Folio Enoteca, which closed for good several weeks ago.
