As a user of the Linux operating system called Ubuntu, I’d been wanting to eat at the Ubuntu restaurant (and yoga studio, too, apparently) in Napa for a while. Well, this week, I finally got to go.
I loved that the butter that comes with the bread has a little Ubuntu wax paper on top. Notice how, even though it is not exactly the same, the font is very similar to the Ubuntu Linux one. They also tend, in the decor of the restaurant and the plates and cups to use very warm colors (just as Ubuntu Linux does). The restaurant tends to favor browns, dark oranges, soft yellows and such.
Even though it was a bit pricey (two starters, two drinks, two entrees, and two desserts came at just under US$90 with tax and tip), it was a great experience. The wait staff were attentive and friendly but not oversolicitous. The food was of high quality. And the atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant. Overall, it fit very nicely with the Ubuntu philosophy.
