Early - pre-theatre dinner in Petaluma?

Four of us are going to the Patsy Cline show at Cinnabar Theatre tomorrow. Dinner needs to be early, need to get to will-call, stand in line, etc.

Suggestions for a Petaluma early dinner spot? I'm thinking Real Doner.

Many thanks in advance,

  1. My favorite Petaluma restaurant is Central Market. Sensational Cal/NOLA food.

      Thanks Civil Bear,

      I want to try Central Market, but not on a nite when I might feel rushed. What do you like there, special recommendations?

        I love central market, last visit I had the red and yellow watermelon salad, hanger steak and shared the polenta...all was very good,

    2. You could try Humble Pie in Penngrove. Relative to the Cinnabar Theatre it's probably closer than Real Doner.

        I love Humble Pie, but they aren't particularly quick, in my experience. For pre-theater, quick tends to be a priority.

          I figured if you were there early enough (ie. right when they open @5) then you could be okay if you didn't order a bunch of food.

      2. My first choice would be Central Market, too. Real Doner is great, but more a formica/flourescent atmosphere. SeaThai on the boulevard is servicable, too.
