Downtown Napa's transformation over the last decade has been remarkable. I have witnessed it go from tired, old-time and sleepy to invigorating, modern and bustling. With a new Napa town center planned for 2016 there is even more to come. This is great for a lifestyle blogger and foodie like me. On Friday we visited a fairly new place to the scene that I've been wanting to try for a while - La Taberna. Known for good drinks and tapas, I found the food superb, had great presentation and, for tapas, was generously proportioned. In short it was fantastic, and we couldn't stop ordering dishes. The atmosphere is great and not too loud, but it's definitely not a family friendly place. You would have to order the entire menu multiple times for a family of five like mine. If you are looking for a place to grab a drink, have a few bites with friends, enjoy a date night, or simply start your weekend, then come here. And if you're lucky like us, get seats by the window and enjoy Napa's new downtown with some people watching.
