"Celadon is a cozy haven alongside the Napa River. Unpretentious in its décor,
the menu delivers a rich, decadent meal. If you love lamb, definitely try the
Moroccan Inspired Lamb Shank, you won't be sorry."

"Oenotri is a favorite among most of the staff because its menu changes daily and is derived from local, fresh ingredients. With hand-crafted pasta made daily, you could eat here every day and not get tired of the chef's creativity."
