Restaurant Review: Napa Valley, California

Miminashi


Paitan Ramen

Miminashi is wine-nerd heaven: Of the 100 or so bottles Jessica Pinzon DiFede lists, nearly 30 are riesling or Champagne. She finds that they pair particularly well with the food offered by her husband and partner, Curtis DiFede: precise and inventive izakaya dishes honed through ongoing studies in Japan. Pro tip: The shaved cabbage salad with umeboshi dressing, seasonal fried rice and yakitori are musts—as is the soft-serve ice cream available to go from the walk-up window.
