“The Restaurant at 1313 offers an ambitious seasonal menu that highlights the hyper fresh bounty of our garden. Our chefs and gardeners work closely to focus on celebrating the native plants of Napa Valley at the peak of their season. For those products we are unable to grow or raise on property, we work with small purveyors who share our beliefs on sustainability and quality. Our goal is to provide an experience to our guests that is both refined, yet comforting in nature.”
