Chef Greg Johnson transfigures time-tested favorites into creative dishes at the award-winning Zinsvalley Restaurant. Diners can steal away for an exotic midday lunch of coconut yellow curry, which bathes baby bok choy, yams, shitake mushrooms, snow peas, and jasmine rice together in a bath of yellow coconut milk curry ($14), or field imaginary fly balls while noshing on the Wagyu beef hot dog with a piquant kick of jalapeño jam and pico de gallo ($11). At dinner, gourmands can sip local small-production vintages while elegantly slurping shrimp linguini ($16) or the chef's signature steak frittes, which pairs grilled Kobe Bavette with chili-rubbed fries and watercress ($24).
Located near the Napa Valley Opera House, Zinsvalley Restaurant's floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of downtown Napa as well as advance warning of encroaching offensive linemen. Guests can cozy up next to the lounge's fireplace in the winter or bask in the outdoor courtyard during warmer months.
- The atmosphere is wonderful here, I love how the owner comes around and talks with customers, that never happens anymore! The food was enjoyable, and they have a great wine list. – Nichole E., Yelp, 10/18/10
- we ended up having some great conversation with the staff who went out of their way to serve us and even discuss with us at length some of the more interesting things to do and see while we were in town. We were extremely grateful for their help and ended up visiting several sites that weren't overrun with tourists. The food was excellent as well I might add! – nomadgtr, TripAdvisor
