Healdsburg recommendations

I am spending the upcoming weekend in Healdsburg. Any recommendations for lunch and dinner?

  1. Casual lunch at the Downtown Bakery and Creamery

    1. On the recommendation of a NY Times food article about Healdsburg about a year ago, we went to Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar (last October). The lobster roll was quite good (sweet lobster slathered in herbed butter on a white roll) and the oysters were fresh and delicious.

      1. I second the Willi's suggestion. I also liked Barndiva, which had a hip vibe and great food (kind of small portions though). Dry Creek Kitchen was fabulous when it first opened but has since disappointed.
        Pick up lunch at Jimtown Store and bring to a local winery for a picnic.

        1. Well.for lunch it depends on your desires. We were underwhelmed by Willi's and frankly like either Bovolo
          (pizza,sanwiches and just good food) on the Plaza in the food court or El Sombrero(across from Oakville Grocery) good Mexican food in a joint favored by Mexicans-many of whom know the town well and work the vineyards.

          For dinner I will always recommend Ravenous. Make your reservations for dinner NOW.
