New Eats



Rob Watermeyer

As if foodies visiting Wine Country didn’t already have enough eateries to sate every craving, two newcomers serve up home-style fare at prices that are easy to swallow. First up: East Bay restaurateur Rodney Worth takes a page from New Orleans, as he cooks up Southern comfort at The Pear, nestled along downtown Napa’s chic riverfront. Crowd favorites are the fried chicken and waffles, and spicy gumbo. For seasonal Italian delights, with many ingredients culled from its garden, Yountville’s Ciccio delivers handwritten brunch and dinner menus in a cozy clapboard building, circa 1916, re-imagined by owner Frank Altamura. Start the day with granola garnished with fruit, or for dinner, sip Sangiovese while sharing wood-oven pizzas at the community table. ciccionapavalley.com.
