A couple of years ago I had a random dinner out with my friend Dan at Napa Valley Grille. I say random only because we didn't know about the place, but we happened to be in Westwood so we stopped in. It was a great dinner, but for some reason I never went back. This past Sunday we decided to visit the restaurant for happy hour before heading to see JenFinn's play. For some reason none of us had eaten anything that day so to say we were starving was putting it lightly.
It's a good thing the restaurant was so empty. Our food came out almost immediately and everything was so good. One blood orange mojito for Raul and wine for the rest of us and soon all thoughts of hunger had vanished.
Dan's choice was the mac and cheese. It was unbelievably creamy.
Of course when you get burgers, you have to have fries. In this case they had plenty of garlic and herbs.
The crispy calamari had an interesting mix of calamari, lemons, and onions. Fried lemons are really good. Who knew?
The iceberg wedge wasn't my favorite, but that's mostly because I don't care for iceberg. The toppings were great though.
