MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Welcome to Mexico by way of Brooklyn (home to the original location) right in the heart of Napa. Gran Eléctrica is already a neighborhood hit—particularly during happy hour. Servers are always welcoming and ensure a steady meal. Inside this breezy space, find a long bar stocked with mezcal and tequila as well as floor-to-ceiling windows that practically open onto the sidewalk. The massive outdoor patio is just as popular. Over in the kitchen, tacos, tostadas and larger plates are all made with great care and top ingredients. Be sure to try the ceviche tostada, a starter filled with clean, bright flavors and lime-cured shrimp. Red snapper mojo de ajo is another high point, sautéed in a garlicky red sauce of chile morita, lemon and a bit of paprika heat.
