Wednesday is vegetarian night at Neela's in Napa. (Yup, checked it off the list last week, which means I made it to seven of the 10 places I was hoping to dine at in 2010. Not too shabby!)

For $22 per person, you can get a three-course vegetarian chef's tasting dinner, featuring dishes created just for the evening. (By the way, I find it annoying when restaurants advertise a "special" menu that turns out to be nothing more than an appetizer, entree and dessert taken straight off the regular menu and bundled together. Lame and boring. Thankfully, Neela's isn't guilty of this.)

When we went, our first course was a spicy tomato-based soup; the main was a thali (pictured above) with squash, stuffed eggplant, beet greens, potatoes, rice and naan; and the dessert was fresh fruit in crème anglaise.

We left with very happy bellies.

And then went down the street to the lounge at Zinsvalley, where the Wednesday happy hour lasts all night. Four bucks for a glass of wine? You bet.
