Cook Tavern in St. Helena opened this week with a seriously noshable menu that includes house made fried pickles, poutine with beef cheeks, sautéed sweetbreads with red wine veal jus, mini grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and bigger plates of buttermilk fried chicken wings, a house ground burger, slow roasted pork Cubano, and steak frites among the offerings.

Potables include an old school daiquiri, barrel aged Manhattan, hot toddy, and crafty cocktails like the Cougar Juice (Grey Goose, St. Germain, peach shrub, lemon juice and wine). Why do I feel slightly offended, yet thirsty?

The tavern is the little sister restaurant of the popular Cook Restaurant 1310 Main St., St. Helena, (707) 963-7088.

  1. Ah, sophomores.
    Telling us that “Cook Tavern in St. Helena opened . . . ”
    and that
    “The tavern is the little sister restaurant of the popular Cook Tavern. ”
    Do I detect a circle?
    And if there is a circle, did the writer explain it to me?
    So informative.
    So helpful.
    So adept at writing a declarative sentence.
    Employment opportunities will abound.
    One almost feels pity for McDonalds.
    Amazing how many clods appear in NoCal this time of year. Must be the mud.

    As another observer said; Please, keep posting. We like to have you out there so we can see you.

    Such a wonderful demonstration of your education.

    1. Agree about Cindy Pawlsen’s stuff & is mediocre, but also The French Laundry has gone way downhill, Redd is TERRIBLE, and yet there are so many awful FANS on this site for all of this stuff. It’s like people in Slowcoma & Nappies County do not have tastebuds at all. Let me include San Fransicko as well. People do not have tastebuds. People LIKE being FANS. They are not foodies but FANS. Awful. Also I’ve had poutine in Canada and it’s really kind of meh, nothing to write home about.

      Add in all the “bakeries” around here in Slowcoma & Nappies, omg, they are almost all terrible.

      1. Your response is so clever, mature, and well thought-out, how could anyone not take you seriously? Please, keep posting.

      2. I will try it, and I am the poster above. I hope you will hit it out of the ballpark and make things tasty. I will be sure to try your stuff. Yes I am cynical but I am willing to try things even when there are snarky mean people saying things, like myself. Good luck to you chef.
