Grape Street Cafe maintains a comely, Napa Valley–wine-cellar design, with exposed brick walls and wooden shelves of bottles, which invite diners to enjoy a smattering of gourmet salads, pizzas, and pastas. Starters whet appetites better than a sniffing tour of a culinary school with the poached-salmon platter’s chilled fish lounging with cherry tomatoes, capers, crackers, and a dill-scallion sauce. Sate cravings for greens with the orange chicken salad, rife with peanuts and red peppers, or chow on complex carbs with the roasted-vegetable burger, which envelops roasted eggplant and caramelized onions in a homemade french roll. The four-cheese pizza pairs fontina, mozzarella, gorgonzola, and parmesan for a flat dish that sates hunger or illustrates early perceptions of geography. During dessert, sweet teeth meet their match in tiramisu as eager noses inhale the scent of a vintage port or sauvignon blanc.
Grape Street Cafe
When chef John McKibben first opened Grape Street Cafe in 1997, his small restaurant took a back seat to a large front-of-the-house retail area where customers could purchase house-made sauces, salads, and high-quality wines. Though the concept quickly transitioned to focus on the fresh, house-made dishes flying out of his kitchen, McKibben has held on to his retail license and continues to encourage his diners to finish their meal by picking up a bottle of wine to go or commissioning a self-portrait painted with balsamic vinegar.
With the exception of a handful of rotating nightly specials, the menu has stayed largely the same, and Chef McKibben credits the cuisine as the eatery's 14-year secret to success. Dinner finds the shop's signature hot sandwiches, creamy pastas, and pizzas sharing top billing alongside nationally inspired entrees such as a baked Alaskan halibut topped with lemon beurre-blanc and Colorado lamb in a sweet-and-sour mint glaze. However, the diverse menu is designed to complement the restaurant’s real draw: its extensive wine selection. Up to 90 vinos are available by the glass each day, with selections that hail from as near as Napa and as far away as Mosel, Bordeaux, Rioja, and Mos Eisley.
