Market projects itself onto staid St. Helena’s Main Street with the use of a stencil and a pencil spot, forming a welcome mat of light. Aiming to please Napa Valley locals and guests alike, Market is anchored by veteran maitre d’ Nick Peyton, a former principal at Restaurant Gary Danko. Chef Douglas Keane serves ample portions of home-style American classics, from mac ‘n cheese to chicken pot pie, while the small, focused, affordable wine list offers a few surprises. A distinguished selection of Napa wines is balanced by picks from Alsace, Austria, Galicia, Piedmont and the Rhône, thanks to Bobby Stuckey, who most recently directed the wine program at the French Laundry.
