THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nava Restaurant Review: Nava is theoretically focused on the flavors of the American Southwest, but other Spanish cuisines also make their mark. Tacos make a good appetizer or small plates snack, and there are many from which to assemble a meal. Mexican classics such as tortilla soup from the Yucatan, and totopos, tortilla-like flat corn cakes from the Zapotec cuisine of Oaxaca, are among the adapted authentic dishes. Sonoma jack cheese fritters with red chile jelly are a signature. Watch out for the salmon, served with chipotle hollandaise---its blackened seasoning can be quite spicy. Desserts are rather ho-hum, but we recommend the frozen Key lime pie soufflé perched atop a graham disk, albeit thematically alien to this cuisine. The wine list is much improved, but, except for an expensive brut rosé Champagne, there is no rosé on the list, which is ideal with this food. Bring one and pay a corkage fee of $15. A $5 patio menu is available on Wednesday nights in the spring and summer, and gluten-free dishes are available at all times.
