This three-floor restaurant was transformed into a modern, airy version of a store house where each floor showcases a rotation of herbs, products, branches, and even floral that chef Matthew Lightner uses in his dishes. ┬áThere’s a “goods & produce” wall on the first floor, a casually-elegant second floor dining room centered around an arched, open kitchen, and a rooftop bar complete with central lounge “gliders” and banquettes covered in vintage plaid.

  • "This is casual food only as Lightner might see casual. He hasn't set aside his creativity to cook it. Neither is it like anything else in downtown Napa."
    San Francisco Chronicle
  • "Napa's restaurant scene has been abuzz since word got out that Michelin two-star chef Matt Lightner and restaurant design firm AvroKO would be remodeling and taking over The Thomas & Fagiani's Bar."

  • "Napa's once moribund dining scene continues to grow in depth and I predict Lightner's elevated but approachable cooking will blow it wide open. Welcome to Napa, chef."
