Westwood: Napa Valley Grille

Last Thursday, my classmates (and a few upperclassmen) convened at Napa Valley Grille for some class/program Happy Hour bonding.  Turns out that Napa Valley Grille is my kind of place: tastefully decorated, high ceilings, not too crowded, a comfortable outdoor patio that has plenty of heat lamps, and a very reasonably priced Happy Hour menu with tasty cocktails that aren't strong.  (Exhibit B: Mantra in Palo Alto, which is also attractive, high-ceilinged, and not crowded, with tasty cocktails that are extremely strong.  That said, it looks like along with the website redesign, they've brought back their 50% off Happy Hour deal, so I may have to return during one of my trips up north.)

Anyway, I had a "Garden sage martini," which was enjoyably crisp, along with the fish tacos.  Xavi ordered and - I assume - enjoyed the white bean hummus.
