John Turi - Wine, Places to Try

Napa Rose Restaurant, Disneyland

So, let’s mix things up a bit this month; shall we. Instead of my usual wine column I thought I would instead review one of my favorite California restaurants. I know what you’re thinking, how could some obscure eatery on the west coast benefit me, unless I live there? Well although it may seem obscure, it’s not like I’m reviewing a place that’s in the middle of Podunk Nowhere. And even if we were, I don’t see it hurting Drive-Ins, Dinners and Dives one little bit, but I digress. As I was saying, we aren’t in B.F.E., we’re in Southern California and I know in addition to many people visiting here for their vacations there are also hundreds of thousands who come here every year, just to spend a day or two, at the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’. Well, it just so happens that the restaurant I am going to tell you about is about 2-miles from where I live and it’s a place I thought everyone could put on their list of places to dine, because when they come to Anaheim, California and visit Disneyland, this unexpected gem is walking distance from the most famous mouse on the planet.
