Napa Yard
Downtown Napa’s Hottest New Outdoor Oasis

Napa Yard-Oxbow Garden, the new culinary destination and agricultural outdoor oasis nestled along the Napa River in downtown Napa, is now fully open with the completion of the Garden Kitchen and Yard N’ Go Market. A Beer Garden-Distillery-Restaurant-Wine Tasting-Event space, situated amongst 3.5 acres of trees, orchards, and organic gardens, Napa Yard invites guests to immerse themselves in the beauty of the outdoors and indulge in a new range of offerings.


Garden Kitchen at Napa Yard

“Napa Yard’s new Garden Kitchen and the introduction of the Yard N’ Go Market, embody our passion for creating exceptional culinary experiences,” said Chef Daniel Tellez, executive chef at Napa Yard. “We are excited to provide our guests with diverse ways to engage with our farm-to-table concept, whether they choose to dine-in, take our farm-fresh food home, or join us for a unique garden dining experience.”

Representing a new chapter in Napa Yard’s culinary journey, the Garden Kitchen celebrates the harmony between nature’s bounty and gastronomic delights. Sourced directly from the onsite gardens which produce a bounty of fresh, seasonal ingredients - some of which were part of the original project of Copia that was created by Robert Mondavi - and carefully selected purveyors, the evolving menu changes weekly and every ingredient reflects a celebration of the region’s abundant harvests, presented in imaginative and flavorful culinary creations. Surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful flora under the outdoor pavilions, the Garden Kitchen table service experience will be available through October, Friday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., as well as for dinner on Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

In addition to the new Garden Kitchen experience, guests are also able to order from the expansive Beer Garden Menu. Chef Tellez has crafted a fresh take on California-inspired garden to plate food, with all day menu favorites such as Shrimp Cocktail, Miso Dip & Spring Crudites, Beef Birria Tacos and a Smash Burger. The bar offers a garden influenced cocktail program developed by the onsite distillery, Concordia Spirits, along with a large selection of craft beers on tap and curated wine flights.  The beverage features an assortment of fresh garden cocktails including the Boozé Frosé, Oaxacan Love Song, Beet Negroni, Jacky’s Sweet Tea and Gerard’Z Buzz which features honey from the on-site hives and Concordia Spirit’s Coda Gin.

Napa Yard is a beloved culinary destination dedicated to providing farm-to-table dining experiences that embrace the essence of locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. With a passion for culinary creativity, Napa Yard will be hosting Pop-up Wednesday events each week, offering a variety of vendors including hand crafted smoked meats in Central Texas style from Sticky Business Barbeque; and wood-fired pizza from Fancy Savage Cuisine.  Featuring 3.5 acres of event space, the property boasts a wine shed, offering curated tastings, along with a harvest table by the river that can seat 50 people for private dinners. Pig roasts, paella parties, cocktail classes, and other personalized and curated experiences can be booked for up to 300 guests.

Designed by Frame Ventures and artist Michael Brennan, the Napa Yard-Oxbow Garden space exudes casual sophistication in a laid-back atmosphere. The property features repurposed shipping containers, originally sourced from the Yard at Mission Rock in the parking lot of Oracle Park (home of the SF Giants) which are now utilized for the kitchen, bar, and storage area. Redwood and Douglas Fir salvaged from wildfires have been locally milled and incorporated throughout the property for tables and benches.

To experience the new Garden Kitchen and to explore the offerings of the Yard N’ Go Market, visit Napa Yard at 585 1st Street in downtown Napa. Reservations for the Garden Kitchen are encouraged and can be made in advance on OpenTable.
