Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen
One of Napa’s most recognizable restaurateurs, Cindy Pawlcyn opened this restaurant as an ode to her culinary-inspired globetrotting. Originally built in the 1800’s, the building has served turns as a private residence, bordello, and cooperage. Guests enter via a brick patio, shaded by a century-old fig tree, and the design of the interior space recalls a classic supper club or speakeasy, incorporating checkered tile floors, black and white floral wallpaper, and shelves that display interesting pieces Pawlcyn collected during her travels. Signature dishes include the Chinatown Duck Burger served with shiitake mushroom ketchup and Mighty Meatloaf with horseradish barbeque sauce.
