Last Saturday I was on a bit of a mission. I needed to get a gift card for my friend and I wanted to try a new place for dinner. I decided to combine my goals and try one of my friend’s favorite places. Napa Flats is located on 620 right past the Movie House, but its almost hidden in a shopping strip, so I didn’t know it was there. I have been missing out! Wines on tap, wood grill oven, pizza...what more can we ask for? It was either wine day or rose weekend, so I decided that I would start off with some frose. This turned out to be an excellent choice. It was almost like a combination of a strawberry daiquiri and rose. There was strawberry purée and rose wine, which when combined created a delicious frozen strawberry beverage that was neither too strong, nor too sweet. I loved that there was wine on tap and an extensive menu. Normally, we probably would have looked at pizza, but we had eaten pizza the night before and had a fridge full of leftovers.
On the recommendation of our trainee waitress, we decided to try the Palo Alto dip, which was served with some of their signature flat bread. This cheesy dip with cream cheese, green onions, and sun dried tomatoes was amazing! It reminded us a lot of the Asiago cheese dip at Wild Horse Grill (sadly closed) where we had our first date (and later rehearsal dinner) so many years ago!
Our dinner choices were pretty true to our upbringing, with Mike selecting a spicy chicken pasta dish and me, taking after my mom, ordering a steak. Our entrees were delicious, too. Mike’s pasta was creamy and spicy without being over the top. My steak was cooked to perfection and paired nicely with the chimichurri sauce, roasted green beans, and garlic potatoes. We each enjoyed a glass of red wine from the taps with our meal. Everything was delicious and Mike noted that I was so full, I didn’t even look at the dessert menu. I am so glad that Sue recommended this delicious spot. We will definitely return for more frose, dip, and to sample some of the other yummy sounding options.
