It's become a New Year's tradition of sorts in Napa: New restaurants open and CHANGE is the only constant.
This 2014 sees Main street ushering in a pair of new hot spots and a new vision for the old Napa Valley Opera House.
TORC (rhymes with Pork) is a contemporary, high-energy American restaurant with global influences. A local gathering place to meet up with friends and catch up on news and events, TORC exudes a spirit of community. Definately NOT boring. (sorry should have resisted)
TORC focuses on the region’s bountiful selection of fresh products and relationships with the people that produce, forage, and glean them.
As well as meats, this hopping place always has the freshest of fish and seasonal delights. The Wine List? Just a delicious!

From Buffalo Sliders to Pan Roasted Steelhead with a stop a speciality salads and delisious deserts, this is no ordinary bar and grill.
