Looks like a tomato I once saw painted in between the old Tomatinas and the Inn next door to it?

Good guess, Belle, it is restaurant-related - but it's not that one.

Old Rio Poco on main?

Not far off in locale, but this place is very much in business.

Pizzeria Tra Vigne

Good guess, but this is not an Italian restaurant.

Louisa, with your Bohemian nature for international experiences, and the rustic texture of the background, my guess would be Small World Restaurant in downtown Napa.
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) January 07, 2013 at 11:10 PM
Excellent (and flattering) guesses, Steve! But Small World's decor is murals of what appear to be Nazareth village scenes with some people in fezzes, some in turbans and some with jugs on their heads. No tomatoes, that I've noticed. This is trickier than I thought it would be. Even my boyfriend, who was with me when I took the photo, couldn't remember where it was. So, another hint: The place stays open late, but not every day.

I forgot to mention the photos of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and somebody we couldn't quite ID.
