With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic American fare with an international edge at Pear Street Bistro in Pinole.
Pear Street Bistro enchants diners with a neoteric ambience and an eclectic menu of regional fare fused with international influences. Break the table ice by trading life stories and Antarctic survival tips between bites of applewood bacon and parmesan fritters ($8). The fettuccine with chicken, swathed in a creamy marsala-wine sauce with savory veggies and sun-dried tomatoes, will appease mouths in a Mediterranean mood ($17), while the Bistro burger will delight buds of more traditional tongues with lean Angus beef on a ciabatta roll with bacon, onion, provolone, and mustard aioli ($13). Buttress chow with one of many sapid signature cocktails, including the Van Gogh sour apple, an artful libation concocted with Appel vodka, Apple Pucker, Midori, sweet and sour, and fresh lemon juice ($10).
- The chef here characterizes his cuisine as “California with rustic Italian overtones”---a puzzling combination until you actually take a look at the menu. On the one hand there are classic pastas; on the other, Left Coast favorites. Thin-crust pizzas come with a variety of toppings including pear, Gorgonzola, caramelized onion and balsamic reduction. This is a house specialty, and we recommend that you try it. – Gayot
- Who would of known that Pinole had a cool upscale restaurant that rivals that of any lounge in Oakland or SF? Well, it does. The PEAR STREET BISTRO allows the denins [sic] of the West Contra Costa County the opportunity to enjoy an upscale meal or drink without having to drive to Walnut Creek or San Fran – Black K., Yelp
