Dinner in Healdsburg for <$200?

Cheallaigh Jun 25, 2008 01:05 PM

My husband & I are coming to Napa & Sonoma in August for our 5th anniversary. We'll be there for 4 nights & have already made reservations at The French Laundry, Ad Hoc and Cyrus. On our last night we'll be in Healdsburg & we're looking for a restaurant for dinner. I'm know that our wallets will be well depleted by that point; I'm assuming that we'll have gained 10 lbs each; and I'm fearing that we might be sick of the inventive "New" American dishes. All that said, we can't end our gastronomic tour on a low note. Can anyone recommend a great restaurant in Healdsburg (we don't want to drive) that will cost less than $200 for a 3 course meal for two, plus a decent bootle of wine and tip?

    I think you could probabaly do that at Ravenous, and maybe Bistro Ralph. I haven't been to Bistro Ralph for years, so I won't comment. But I was at Ravenous fairly recently and had great food and very gracious service.

      I'm a Barn Diva fan; love their Duck Shepherd's Pie and great starters. AND, they are right next to my favorite Healdsburg tasting room, Selby.

        You should easily be able to do that at Zin, a very good restaurant.

          Second Zin. Get the pork chop.

          I don't have any additions to those already mentioned, but I am envious of your upcoming trio of FL, AD, and Cyrus.

          Please do report back; I'd love to hear what you think after going back to back to back! It's rare to see anyone go to all three in a week. And whatever you do, try the foie gras torchon at Cyrus (unless you don't eat foie gras). Easily the best preparation I've ever had, and not a stingy portion even though it was a tasting menu course.

            I'd second Bistro Ralph. While we mostly eat lunch there, it's consistently good and I think in your range.

              My favorite place in Healdsburg is Willi's Seafood & Raw Bar. Great food with reasonable (for Healdsburg) prices.

                I second Ravenous, it will be like eating at someone's home (who is a very good cook) after all the high-falutin meals that week.
