Napa Valley Grille in Westwood is ready to assist you for Thanksgiving!
Just remember the 3 Ps:
Pre-order, Pick up & Pretend!
Seriously the food is delicious and everything is homemade from the exquisite sourdough bread to the olive tapanade. Don’t miss out on simply grilled fish like a whole branzino and Prime London Sirloin but save room to tempt yourself with rainbow carrots and out of this world apple tarte tartin. Menus are printed daily and the food is seasonal. Feel good about your choices as this fourteen year old restaurant supports your health and local growers with CSA (Community Sponsored Agriculture). If you are wondering where to go for Thanksgiving or where to supplement your dinner, this is the place!
Personally I cannot wait to go back for Late Night Happy Hour with the incredible kale chopped salad with Lemon-Parmesan Vinaigrette (recipe below), Chorizo Mac & Cheese, Turkey Meatballs and Stuffed Peppers! See you in Westwood!

1 T Parmesan Cheese, granulated
1 small clove Garlic, minced
1 T Shallots, minced

In a non reactive bowl combine kale, romaine, raisins, quinoa, and almonds. Season with salt and fresh black pepper. Incorporate dressing and toss. Place onto a cold salad plate and garnish with fresh grated parmesan.
