Disclosure: I was invited to dine as a guest of the restaurant. No monetary compensation has been received for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

A local hot spot, 1313 Main Restaurant & Wine Bar, which is located in the heart of downtown Napa, California is one that is not to be missed.

1313 Main highlights California Cuisine, has an award-wining wine cellar and warm hospitality.

1313Main_0812Executive Chef, Adam Ross, has worked in James Beard & Michelin Star awarded kitchens throughout Napa Valley, Hawaii and Colorado. Using 1313 Main’s own gardens and local farm, Chef Ross looks to showcase the freshness of California, all while keeping the depth of the restaurant’s cellar in mind.

1313Main_0788 1313Main_0792The sleek, modern interior is underlined by an incredible focal wall of wines, featuring some of the restaurant’s award-winning collection of over 2000 label offerings.

The decadent Sunday Brunch menu featuring a three-course meal begins with a light spring salad, your choice of Duck Confit Hash, Chicken and Waffles, or Lobster Benedict.  Then it’s finished off with an incredibly light and airy Ricotta Pancake.

BloodyMary_0803Check out this list of additional garnishes:

Black lava salt from Moloka’i in Hawaii, Sriracha salt, black truffle salt, Blue cheese stuffed olives, caper berries, Fresh grated horseradish, Fresh grated egg yolk cured in salt, Candied jalapenos, house-made pickles, kimchi Brussels sprouts, Fried oysters, fried shrimp cocktail,  Caprese spears, Puffed beef chips, bacon-wrapped dates, duck pastrami made from local Sonoma duck,  beef jerky, thick-cut candied bacon, Infused tequila floaters: cilantro-Jalapeño infused tequila, smoked lime-tamarind infused tequila

Beware:  Order your Bloody Mary as soon as you are seated.  Because they make their own tomato juice, it’s made in small batches.  It’s a popular item and sells out rather quickly.

The restaurant is open Tuesday – Thursday from 4:00 pm–10:00 pm; Friday and Saturday from 4:00 pm-12:00 am; and Sunday from 10:00 am-2:00 pm & 4:00 pm-10:00 pm (Closed Mondays).

Napa Valley Restaurant: 1313 Main Restaurant Review — 13 Comments

  1. I want to go here! I’m a huge lover of a good Bloody Mary, and my goodness, the array of yummy brunch items can’t be beat! I love that they have their own garden and use local fresh ingredients on their menu and even in the drinks! How awesome is that? Wish I lived closer, but I’m thinking I need to get to CA to see the family soon! 😉 (and you, Marlene! xo)

  2. This looks like one fabulous restaurant! Love love the decor, all the dishes you’ve featured and especially the table side bloody Mary! I’ll take one with everything! NOW you’re talking!

  3. Wow! We typically avoid Napa, opting for the slightly less crowded Sonoma area. But I would definitely make a trip to try 1313. Thanks for sharing your experience and photos.

  4. Looks nice. I’ll put it on my places I want to visit while I’m in Napa in a few weeks.
