NAPA Restaurant: an American – Italian restaurant in Scout Borromeo , Quezon City

NAPA Restaurant ,# 2 Scout Borromeo Street, Quezon City- Philippines

Napa Restaurant signage is very visible within Scout Borromeo street in Barangay South Triangle with ample area .

I had a privilege last January 24, 2013 to join an eyeball and a victory party  (Filipino Bloggers Worldwide) organized by Ms. Sumi Go that was held in the heart of the busy Barangay South Triangle area. This area is known for its restaurants, condominiums, medium- sized malls that are perfectly located just a stone throw away from two popular television stations.

According to some old time residents , This area used to be a quiet and lazy residential area even up to the late 1970’s when commercialization started converting the residential lands into tall condominium units and business establishment.  The restaurant used to be called Bistro Napa located at IL Terrazo in Quezon City.  The place used to be an old residential house, then converted into  a pre-school  run by ABS-CBN Children’s Center  for about a decade, before it was re-adapted as a restaurant and bar by its present owners.

Function:

Much of the foundations of the old-house was retained and was enhanced by the present proprietors (Kudos for its re-adapted re-use).

It had an open area perfectly fit for occasions like garden events, baptism, meetings, and a hangout place for barkadas.

NAPA restaurant had function rooms that can hold private affairs from company team- buildings, seminars, meetings, family reunions, parties, media conference and special events ranging from 20-120pax.

According to Chef Joseph Apolinario , the name was derived from NAPA Valley in California that is known for its grape vineyards  and agricultural lands. Another interesting trivia is that one of the proprietor hails from the NAPA Valley region hence they choose the name.

The garage area was converted into an outdoor patio style setting, perfectly fit for those people who wanted to admire the various flowering and ornamental plants carefully arranged in a landscape.

This area used to be a garage  , now this was converted into a semi-outdoor  dining area by the proprietors

The friendly staffs and crews were very accommodating and even escorted us to our dining area. The new location comes an updated menu, with a focus on comfort food like pizza, pasta, cakes, spare ribs, spicy buffalo chicken wings, sweet potato chips, lava cake and other popular favorites.

Gallery: The wall of the restaurant had a several collections of paintings and object d’ art (collection by one of the owners)  –This is another reason to visit this restaurant.  Aside from the yummy food that they serve, their restaurant offers a visual treat.

wine bottles serve as lightning fixtures in the restaurant

What I like most about this restaurant is their ability to convert their used wine bottles  as accents for their lightning effects and retaining the structure of the old residential house.
