Bringing a touch of NYC to downtown Napa, The Thomas, a New American canteen and raw bar from Manhattan’s Farmerie brothers (Saxon + Parole, Public) aims to be a key new dining and nightlife player in the burgeoning riverfront. The 126-seat renovated historic building features three levels, each of which is outfitted with vintage elements to recall its past and each offering a different dining experience. The second floor serves as the main dining room replete with a wine wall and open kitchen from which the chef prepares mid-priced rustic American wood-fired dishes with international touches, while on the ground floor, Fagiani’s Bar at the Thomas offers classic cocktails, Negroni on tap and bar bites served until midnight. A rooftop bar and dining terrace on the third floor completes the package with tables overlooking the Napa River.
The Thomas will be open for dinner daily, along with weekend brunch, and beginning on September 3, it will also serve weekday lunch. 813 Main St., Napa, 707-226-7821
