Which way do you lean? Here's a chance to find out:

If all goes as planned, The Thomas and Fagiani's Bar at the Thomas will begin welcoming customers Wednesday evening.

The three of our bubbles were busted earlier this week when we were told it would be opened so made a special trip to town only to find out only to a "Special" few :( I wonder how many of them & their friends signed the petitions? So now in no hurry to rush down.

Just to let folks know, our dinner last Friday night at The Thomas was fabulous. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable, so any worries about opening night disappointments were unjustified. As an excellent cook herself, my friend is a rather tough critic of many restaurants, but she absolutely loved the food and ambiance at The Thomas. We both had their signature burger with bacon onion jam and we shared a dessert - awesome warm monkey bread with espresso ice cream and warm chocolate rum sauce. The olive oil they served with foccacia bread pre-dinner and the glass of Chardonnay I had were so good, I went out online later that night to find out where I could buy some myself! And, the total bill for 2 of us was under $55. Pretty much on par with mid-price restaurants here in OC. The rooftop terrace was not open yet (it officially opened Sat. night) but the hostess got permission to take us up in the elevator to see it. What great views! I'm coming back up to Napa in 2 weeks with my husband and I am really looking forward to eating at The Thomas again.
