Napa River Grill moved last week from its longtime location in Dupont Square, opening June 16 as an anchor restaurant in the fast-growing Westport Village complex.
We took a quick peek on opening night without stopping to dine, amid a crowd so large and happy it was hard to make out the details. At a glance, it looks like a good evolutionary move for the popular Northern California-style eatery, with a large bar and several dining rooms, attractively decorated in wine-grape colors, with a large patio for outdoor dining in a mini-vineyard scene. Many familiar dishes remain on the expanded menu. We’ll get back for a review soon.
