Last Saturday I met up with a couple of friends at the Oxbow Market in Napa. We sat outside and enjoyed a glass of bubbles while catching up. Lovely. An hour and a half later it was already 8:30 and the Oxbow closes at 9. NINE! We walked up First Street and stumbled upon Eiko’s a Japonais influenced restaurant. I forget exactly how they describe their menu so let’s just go with “Japonais influenced”…sounds fancy. We sampled many different dishes from the tapas menu and the food was out of this world. Shrimp tacos, chicken lettuce wrap, beef gyoza, and a super scorpion roll. Not ones to pass up dessert we had s’mores! Sorry the photo is so dark, but the restaurant is a little dark…and loud…but otherwise fantastic. I will definitely go back.

For the record, I’m still dreaming about the shrimp tacos.
