Dine out and help out in Downtown Napa.

About the Grateful Table

Perfectly timed during the month of giving thanks, there is a deliciously easy and enjoyable way to support your local culinary community. It’s called The Grateful Dine Out

The California Restaurant Foundation (CRF), a nonprofit that invests in and empowers California’s restaurant workforce, has invited all Californians to participate in its second annual The Grateful Table Dine Out initiative. The campaign will drive awareness of the importance of supporting local restaurants and restaurant workers throughout the month of November. 

Californians are more grateful than ever for their restaurants and have been craving for an easy way to give back to California restaurants, many of which are still struggling to recover from the pandemic. 

If you are one of them, there are a few simple things ways you can be a part of this initiative. First, dine out at a Downtown Napa restaurant to support your local favorites and their crews. Secondly, you can donate to the Restaurants Care relief fund to help food and beverage workers in crisis. Lastly, you can book a room for a weekend or midweek “Foodie Trip” to support multiple restaurants and a variety of wine tasting rooms.
