Three years after leaving Napa’s much-loved Oenotri, Curtis Di Fede has traveled the world and returned to wine country with a mandate to spread his new devotion to Japanese cuisine. Join us as Di Fede offers a taste of his focused and flavorful fare, which earned Miminashi three stars from the San Francisco Chronicle.
