Pearl in Napa What's good?
We had a nice meal there. I had chicken verde, which was good. The polenta was bland. My nephew and husband had the meat loaf and they loved it. The oysters were very good, salads good and the corn was great. I agee, some flavor are muddled. More spice needed on the chicken. We enjoyed the meal, good service, but not a great place. If we lived in Napa we probable would go back every now and then.
Thanks for the info.
Pearl is a real Napa locals place and flies under the Chowhound radar most of the time. I always find the menu a little confusing but the food very competent. I guess I'd say the menu is too fusion/eclectic/mixed up for my taste. Having said that, I have always enjoyed meals there: fish tacos, chicken verde and vegetable polenta are some favorites.
