Bistro Sabor, Napa

Happy Friday! How’s your day going so far? Did you have a good week? I’m happy to say that this week was significantly better than last week. I had a lot of fun work projects and a fun night out with a friend. I also discovered a Yoga station on Pandora which has allowed me to spend some time practicing yoga on my own and keeping calm while getting these muscles ready for the marathon.

My major gripe this week is people who just don’t respond to emails, especially after I’ve taken the time to write a lot of helpful information. Ignoring emails seems to be a growing trend, and I don’t like it.

Bistro Sabor

But I’m not here to gripe, I am here to share with you one of our favorite places to eat in Napa, Bistro Sabor. Located in the heart of the town of Napa, Bistro Sabor serves contemporary street-style Latin American food, has Happy Hour with great beer and wine options, and even offers Salsa dancing on Saturday nights. It’s an inexpensive, delicious, must-visit for us when we are in Napa.

Bistro Sabor was our first dinner on our last wine country trip. I was actually in the mood for a beer, and since I love their beer and pit bull logo, I had a Lagunitas IPA.


As always, we decided to share a couple of plates, the tamales of the day which were filled with pork and resting in a spicy habanero sauce, paired with beans and pico de gallo.


We also had the Dungeness crab quesadilla with cream cheese, salsa verde and pineapple salsa. Amazing. These were seriously stuffed with crab and cream cheese, kind of like crab rangoon only 100 times better because they were paired with the freshness of the salsa.

After a leisurely dinner, we walked down the street for a Passaggio wine tasting event at Quent Cordair Fine Art Gallery. We met the winemaker from Passaggio the last time we were in California, and as she is great and we love her wines, we were excited that our trip coincided with this event.

We got to taste her delicious unoaked Chardonnay; trust me, if you think you don’t like Chardonnay, I can almost guarantee you will like this! We also tasted a beautiful Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Noir. I wish this wine club shipped to Massachusetts, because I would join in a heartbeat!

I’m working a half day today, and then we are headed to see my family for the weekend. This week has been go-go-go, and I am super hyper because of the marathon, so it will be nice to unwind with family for Easter.

What are you up to this weekend?

    I’ve had a Chinese food craving all day, but now I think I want pork tamales! Yum! Sorry about the lack of responses to your emails — that’s one of my pet peeves too. Although lately I’ve been so busy I think I’ve been slacking on getting back to people.

      I don’t mind when it’s a busy friend taking a few extra days to email back. :) It’s annoying when it’s in a professional situation, and you are waiting to get started on work, put a ton of time and effort into something, and never hear back!

        Hope you’re having a great weekend!! I’m guilty of ignoring emails even though it’s something I’m constantly trying to be better at. My problem is that I want to take the time to write a quality response back, but I never seem to have that time, so I end up ignoring it all together. Ugh! But I agree, I get annoyed when people don’t answer MY emails, too!

        That food looks awesome! I ended up getting sick a few days ago so that kind of put a damper on my holiday weekend :(

        If I ever head to wine country, I have a full itinerary thanks to your amazing posts. Enjoy Easter weekend with your family!

        I hate when people don’t respons to emails – especially these days because you KNOW everyone checks their messages 120812 time a day. I hope you had a nice Easter at home!
