Brix Restaurant Review

: Driving past patchworks of orderly vineyards hemmed by hills along Napa Valley's Highway 29, one might expect to come upon a restaurant just like Brix. With a back patio offering undisturbed vistas, and acres of kitchen gardens and estate grapevines ripe for post-meal strolls and photo ops, it's hard to beat the views. The dining room exudes a disarming softness from picture windows, buttercup yellow accents and a stone fireplace wall that transforms the bar area into an inviting lounge. This is California cuisine with substance --- in-season rather than trendy. Mains may range from wood-grilled lamb to caramelized sea scallops to dry-aged cowboy chop for two. Sides (duck fat potatoes, black truffle macaroni and cheese, etc.) are available à la carte. Brix is the "it" spot for a bounteous Sunday brunch buffet, including an al fresco seafood bar, peach-stuffed brioche french toast, corned beef hash croquettes, artisan cheese selections and cupcakes. The wine tome features global heavy-hitters from Brix's own backyard.
