Another crazy day here in terms of the wine country dining scene.

Read on for updates on two local establishments.

Cindy Pawlcyn (right) is morphing her Go Fish restaurant in St. Helena into Brassica, a Mediterranean establishment that is expected to open in August

Cantineta Pierro quietly closes
Our friends over at Eater SF shared the news this morning that Cantinetta Piero, the restaurant attached to Hotel Luca in Yountville, has abruptly closed. Here’s what Eater had to say:

Following big-time investor David Fink’s exodus from all things Hotel Luca in March, employees at its adjacent restaurant Cantinetta Piero were told on Tuesday that Wednesday “would be their last night.” The future of the restaurant remains in limbo and, naturally, rumors are circulating about the next concept.

Cindy Pawlcyn’s Go Fish to morph into Mediterranean restaurant
Meanwhile, Cindy Pawlcyn has formally announced some big news related to Go Fish, her St. Helena seafood and sushi restaurant. In a move that has been widely discussed among locals for some time, Pawlcyn will ‘evolve’ Go Fish into a new establishment, Brassica, that will focus on Mediterranean food. In an email, Pawlcyn stated:

“We are making some exciting changes to the Go Fish space, including the addition of a cozy new wine lounge with over 70 by-the-glass offerings and several wines “on tap.” Go Fish will remain open throughout this summer’s transition. We’ve removed sushi from the menu and introduced a few Mediterranean dishes as a delicious sample of what’s to come.”
