I recently drove to Napa to join a friend from Tahoe. We only get together a few times a year these days so we spent the night there to give us time for a good visit. We did some shopping and went to Morimoto's for dinner. Morimoto's is a very high end place with restaurants in a few cities including New York. The chef has written books and I believe had a TV show although I never saw it.
You walk by the chefs working area on the way to be seated.
We started with martini's
and later switched to wine
The waitstaff was very helpful. We had a number of dishes but here are a couple of my favorites.
Rock shrimp done two ways
Everything about the restaurant and the meal was fabulous. It was really a very special experience. It was also very expensive - almost shockingly so to me. My friend had been given a gift certificate over the holidays so the dinner was her treat.
I'm hoping to link this to Elizabeth's blog for Tea Tuesday but since I'm preparing the post ahead of time I don't know if it will show up. I hope so.
