Frank Bruni's tour of his top ten new restaurants across the country reaches its stirring conclusion, and Napa's Ubuntu comes in at a very, very impressive number two: "I didn't expect to find myself as blissed-out as I was while dining at the two places that have made it to this final installment of 'Restaurant Survivor.' I loved them both. Midway through dinner at each, I realized that I couldn't stop smiling, because I was so excited to be introduced to this restaurant and so eager to introduce it to others ... [Ubuntu is] proof that you can do away with all flesh and hold onto hedonism, at least if you keep enough butter, cream, cheese and wine at hand. Ubuntu is where virtue meets naughty sensuality. It's the Angelina Jolie of restaurants." [NYT]
