Kenzo Napa Restaurant@Napa ★★★

Exquisite Kaiseki Fine Dining. 1 Michelin star. Excellent food & wine paring. A5 Satsuma Wagyu Tenderloin Okakiage was like ultra premium Gyukatsu – soft, juicy, & tasty. Went to their restaurant after visiting the Kenzo Estate winery (2 separate locations). Our 3rd time returning. We had Chef Yuta Suzuki at our counter, who just came from Japan. Great service from Alexis. $275 pp w/ service charge included. Had fantastic wine pairing for $180, which included wine from Kenzo Estate. Reservation was made via OpenTable for 8:30pm seating (booked a month prior).

Kenzo Estate Winery@Napa ★★★

Tour & Wine Tasting at Premium Japanese Winery in Napa. Excellent wine. Kenzo is the founder of Capcom (Street Fighter). We were greeted with a glass of 2019 sei sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, followed by history and tour of the beautiful winery, then tasting. We were able to purchase and open another bottle of wine at the end of the tasting. Estate tour & tasting $110 per person. Reservation via Tock. Went to their kaiseki restaurant for dinner the same night.
