Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen is well worth a visit on your way through the wine country. Perched on a quiet backstreet in downtown St. Helena, the restaurant features locally-sourced and seasonally-focused cuisine and an excellent wine list..

Owner, Chef Cindy Pawlcyn,one of the first and most talented exponents of what is now referred to as a “farm-to table philosophy”, is also the culinary force behind the iconic Mustards Grill, and more recently Cindy’s Waterfront located at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. As a restauranteur Pawlcyn has the remarkable ability to present her deeply satisfying and unpretentious food in a warm, convivial family friendly atmosphere.

The Oysters Bingo are topped with spinach, parmesan cheese, and garlic, and broiled briefly before arriving at your table, still sizzling visibly. For dessert, indulge yourself in a decidedly decadent Campfire Pie composed of toasted marshmallow-meringue heaped on an oreo-cookie inspired crust.
