  • Tower Grille
    Tower Grille was created with an atmosphere that invites diners to linger over their burgers, pastas, and salads in open-air patio seating or in front of ample TVs equipped with a variety of sports packages. The comfortable atmosphere and hearty meals earned Danville Weekly's readers' choice award for best burger, take-out, and place for business lunches in 2009. The dishes of comfort food include classic deli fare such as reuben and french-dip sandwiches alongside bistro items such as penne pasta with fresh vegetables and farmers'-market-inspired salads that toss together greens and anything from marcona almonds to gold beets. Diners can also dig into pizzas topped with a choice of 19 toppings along with draft brews and specialty cocktails that chase meals down to the stomach's secure holding cell. Ten HD televisions show sports games, and live entertainment abounds, including regular live-music performances and weekly beer-pong tournaments.

  • China Gourmet
    Behind the kitchen doors, flaming pans roast orders of meats, seafood, and seasonal vegetables to reflect the culinary traditions of Chinese culture. In addition to the sweet, sour, and savory sauces that coat the dishes' steamed white or brown rice, the cooks can create entrees with enough fiery spice to bring tears to the eyes of a potato. To accompany each meal, the restaurant's bar slides over domestic and imported beers, and glasses of wine from a California-centric list that features fruit-forward reds alongside palate-cooling whites.

  • Los Panchos
    Los Panchos crafts delicious Mexican cuisine from fresh ingredients and traditional recipes, filling its menu with more than 75 south-of-the-border standouts. Rather than calming grumbling tummies by taking a nap in a life raft as it gently sways away from the shore, guests may stuff them with burritos brimming with refried beans, guacamole, and a choice of chicken, beef, or pork ($8.50). Juicy pork carnitas can fill soft tacos ($3.25 each), enchiladas ($3.50 each), or deep-fried chimichangas ($5.75), or erupt from cheesy mountains of nachos ($8.50). Like a traffic light, chili verde’s sauce comes in a choice of green or red ($9.25), letting diners barrel into spiciness or pause to savor a mild chili flavor with each meaty bite.

Four of these have incorporated the word “pear” into the name, causing the chef to earn the title of the Pear King. Where to Sit: at the zinc-topped bar, where the full menu is available along with chef Rodney’s favorite drink, the Spiced Peartini: Grey Goose La Poire vodka, housemade pear liqueur, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet and sour, served up with a roasted pear Behind the Name: The Peasant and The Pear takes inspiration from the nearby pear orchard, which was once the world’s largest, and many of the menu items and drinks incorporate this signature fruit. Inside Tip: Come on a Sunday sometime and have brunch in the outdoor courtyard. Press and Praise Michelin Guide recommends the restaurant, calling the food “playful and eclectic.” On a 2011 episode of Check, Please! Bay Area, all three diners raved about the restaurant. The lamb shank, pork chop, mussels, and warm pear tart were among the diners’ favorites. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Flip through the staff picks at Read Booksellers by G.R. Doodlebug (3630 Blackhawk Plaza Circle). After: For dessert, grab some throwback candy or gelato at Sweet Street (301 Hartz Avenue, Suite 109).
