Obviously, I can only be talking about Ubuntu in Napa, the vegetable-based restaurant (they don’t like to call it vegetarian) attached to a yoga studio that has become the darling of every critic around.
Chef Jeremy Fox’s creative, masterful way with veggies has left diners utterly swooning, even devoted carnivores.
In June, you can bring a little taste of Ubuntu home when Ubuntu Annex opens next door to the restaurant and studio in the historical Main Street Building.
Shop for the same Steelite and Le Creuset dishware used in the restaurant, as well as specialty items, including the darling cast-iron cocottes used for serving Fox’s famous “Cauliflower in Cast Iron Pot.” Also for sale will be a selection of spices, garden seeds, Rancho Gordo beans, Ridgecut Gristmills grits, and Fox’s signature “Lavender Almonds.”
The store, 1130 Main St., also will feature a wine-tasting bar with local organic, biodynamic, and sustainably-made wines. Among the wineries featured will be Lion’s Run biodynamic winery, which sources its grapes from the Ubuntu garden.
Yoga enthusiasts also will find exclusive lines of comfy, stylish exercise wear.
