Early - pre-theatre dinner in Petaluma?

bills Sep 2, 2009 08:37 AM

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,

    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.

      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.

        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?
