Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen to close on July 7, 2018

All the locals know about Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen, it is the spot to talk about wine, vineyards, and everyday Napa Valley life. Tourists love the eclectic menu and the enjoyable atmosphere of Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen. Sadly, Cindy Palwcyn is closing her beloved restaurant on Saturday, July 7, 2018. The word is that Cindy Pawlcyn was offered a proposal she could not refuse and has sold her restaurant to an unnamed buyer. We have been to Cindy’s on several occasions. The small plates are fantastic and fun to share with your friends and family. The wine list is extensive and the wines priced well below most restaurants. Cindy will continue to operate her first Napa Valley Restaurant, Mustard’s Grill in Yountville. Most of the staff at Cindy’s Backstreet will head over to Mustard’s. We will certainly miss this terrific St. Helena restaurant. Read more about the closing of Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen.
