Tomorrow, September 15th, downtown Napa’s Celadon will turn 14. In restaurant years, that makes Greg Cole’s establishment an old-timer.
To commemorate the milestone, Celadon will offer the following at both lunch and dinner: $14 Veuve Cliquot ‘Yellow Label’, Chef Marcos’ Golden Curry and Coconut Squash Soup and a complimentary ‘gold-dusted’ port-filled truffle for each diner. There will also be a contest you can enter, with the grand prize being a $100 Celadon gift certificate.
Meanwhile, the Napa Valley Register has a detailed report on the newest restaurant to come to downtown Napa. Next week, Lark Creek Restaurant Group’s Fish Story is slated to join Morimoto (Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s namesake restaurant) at the Napa Riverfront. Here’s an excerpt:
Located downtown, with ample riverfront patio seating, Fish Story intends to serve lunch weekdays, brunch on weekends and dinner nightly, featuring live local Dungeness crab, live Maine lobster, fresh fish and shellfish all sourced in accordance with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program, plus a substantial number of non-seafood dishes.
Executive chef Stephen Barber said Fish Story will caters to locals and tourists alike, serving up “great food. It’s a place you will be able to afford more than once a month … a restaurant where you can go for a quick bite or a full dining experience.
“We want to be able to accommodate those who come in for a quick business lunch as well as the diner interested in a multi-course meal. We are featuring sustainable seafood as well as ingredients from a large number of local purveyors.”
As a reminder, chef Stephen Barber is the man responsibile for opening Napa’s BarBersQ. According to the Fish Story website, the restaurant will open for dinner on September 20th.
