Grove, the outdoor dining space at the CIA at Copia, is serving nightly prix-fixe dinners from 5 to 9 p.m. 

Angèle restaurant in Napa is offering a new take on take-out with its “Out the Blue Door” Wednesday Night Suppers. Rather than pick up a meal only to find that everything has gotten cold on the way home, with this plan, you pick up a kit planned and prepare by Chef de Cuisine-Phil Moratin and his team. You need only assemble it and reheat it, and you have dinner from Angèle.

The menu this week includes:

— Tenbrink Farms Heirloom Tomato Salad — Fromage Blanc, Summer Stone Fruit, Cucumbers, Marinated Shishito Peppers

— “Alsatian” Coq Au Vin Blanc — Braised Chicken with Hobbs Shore Bacon Lardons, Pearl Onions, Carrots, Button Mushrooms and Marble Potatoes

— “Strawberries and Cream” — Silverado Trail strawberries, Bellwether Farms Crème Fraïche, Brown Sugar

Angèle baguette and and housemade butter are also included.

The cost is $49 per person. Call (707) 252-8115 or go to
