Looking for a restaurant similar to Mustards

We will be in Napa for one dinner. I loved mustards but wanted to try something new. We are staying in Santa Rosa after we visit a couple wineries so anythng near Napa or on the way to Santa Rosa would be great. Thank you!

    If you want something in Santa Rosa, Willi's is good. http://www.starkrestaurants.com/willis_winebar.html

    Or at the southern end of Napa Valley, Don Giovanni's.

        Cindy's Backstreet is an entirely different style and different menu than Mustards. Same chef, yes - but a whole different ballgame.

        Big grilled meats with sticky-sweet sauces and unbalanced accompaniments. In Rutherford, you would probably like Rutherford Grill which is quite similar or, more low-key and better quality, is Bounty Hunter in downtown Napa. BarbersQ also has decent ribs but is more BBQ-oriented and also low-key.

        Sorry I can't make recommendations in Santa Rosa; I don't dine over there often enough.

        Rutherford Grill
        1180 Rutherford Rd, Napa, CA 94558
