afternoon in napa

DSC01004This past Sunday we headed to Napa to celebrate the birthdays of our good friends Pete and Justina.   Our first stop was Ox Bow Market – I have heard wonderful things about the market, it was a lot smaller than I imagined. we strolled around picked up some breakfast tacos, coffee, and wandered the local shops.

DSC01006We walked along downtown for a bit waiting for our reservation at Morimoto’s.  I have heard how amazing the Omakase is here, but unfortunately was not offered for lunch. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and sushi to share.

DSC01025After lunch we headed for a few drinks at Domain Carneros.   A nice estate that offered some nice views was a great way to hang out and catch up with friends.  The location was smaller than I imagined and good thing we made reservations on the patio because it’s quite small.DSC01045 DSC01041Overall great sunday spent with great friends and good food!
