NAPA VALLEY, Calif. (May 15, 2017) – River Terrace Inn, a luxury Napa Valley hotel offering a perfect retreat to guests with lavish accommodations, personalized services and a pristine riverfront setting, announced the grand opening of their new dining experience, ALBA. Slated to open to the public on June 2, ALBA’s award-winning Executive Chef Matthew Grigg will pay homage to the local foodways, devoting the menu to the fine combination of great mixology, good times and superior cooking.

“I’m thrilled to be able to curate a menu of Northern Pacific fare that showcases local purveyors and highlights the exceptional ingredients our region has to offer,” said Chef Grigg. “ALBA is unique to downtown Napa, as our new indoor lounge and bar is elegant and modern with comfortable touches with the main dining space sitting on the picturesque banks of the Napa River and nature preserve, which we believe will be a welcome environment to both locals and sophisticated travelers.”

ALBA’s menu will highlight shareable, seasonal small plates that pair well with wine and craft mixology, featuring local products and natural ingredients. Featured breakfast menu items include the ALBA Omelet with tomato, asparagus, avocado and hollandaise sauce and Huevos Rancheros with crispy tortillas, black beans, red Chile sauce, avocado and cotijas cheese. Featured dinner menu items include Pork Belly Crepe with apple slaw and chipotle blackberries and Cedar Plank Salmon with marble potatoes, mushroom ragout, smoked bacon, asparagus, tomato, truffle cream and Napa honey. ALBA will also offer creative daily specials as additions to the menu and daily happenings such as Wine-Down Wednesdays, Wine & Swine Fridays and Off-The-Grill Saturdays on an ongoing basis. ALBA’s full-bar will feature craft mixology highlighting food-friendly cocktails. The wine selection will feature a variety of global selections with a focus on Napa Valley wineries.

ALBA’s lounge and bar will feature a modern interior with a relaxed quality and floor-to-ceiling windows presenting a beautiful view of the lush surroundings. Outdoor fire pits will surround the dining space situated on the banks of the Napa River. ALBA will be unveiled alongside River Terrace Inn’s refreshed arrival experience, porte-cochere and lobby. The meeting and event space is still under construction and is slated to be completed October 2017.

ALBA will be open seven days a week for breakfast from 7 – 11 a.m.; bar from 3 – 10 p.m. and dinner from 4 – 10 p.m. For reservations, please call (707) 320-6911 or email the reservations team at alba@riverterraceinn.com.
