Happy Monday–hopefully you’re staying warm, dry and are in a festive mood wherever you may be at this moment. Despite the holidays being mere days away, the news doesn’t stop coming here in the Napa Valley.

Today’s round-up will be of interest to all you foodies out there…

Napa Valley Restaurant Month in January
During the typically slower dining season in the beginning of the year several Napa Valley restaurants will be participating in the first ever “Napa Valley Restaurant Month.” Participating restaurants will have special menus and pricing for all those who mention “Napa Valley Restaurant Month” while on-site (restrictions apply).

Among those participating are St. Helena’s Farmstead, Ad Hoc, Bottega and Bistro Jeanty in Yountville, Fish Story, La Toque and Oenotri in Napa, among many others.

Former Martini House proprietors set to open up shop in Oxbow Public Market
According to the crew at Inside Scoop the former proprietors of Martini House, Todd Humphries and Richard Miyashiro, have signed a lease to take over the space at Oxbow Public Market that was recently vacated by the Oxbow Wine and Cheese Merchant.

As you’ll recall, Martini House closed in October due to financial issues. At the time, word on the street was there was already a deal in place with restauranteur Paul Fleming (PF Changs) to take over the space. Reports now claim that deal, if it ever existed, has fallen through. Full details on the new venture have yet to be disclosed.
