The Little Pear has found a happy niche in the sprawling ecosystem that is Blackhawk Plaza. Open early for breakfast, and for simple, stylish sandwiches and salads throughout the day, this latest venture by chef Rodney Worth takes advantage of a value-conscious climate. The tiny, cozy dining room opens to a tranquil patio, with the sights and sounds of the plaza’s duck-filled waterways. Chat outside over fried artichokes and a bottle of Rombauer, or enjoy a croque monsieur and espresso at the bar. Whatever your desire, Little Pear is a place to be fed, both body and spirit. We particularly loved Worth’s thin, buttery omelets (served through the afternoon on weekends), fluffy burger buns, and crispy bread pudding. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
