Quick weekend for a fun event so didn't hit many restaurants, but Scopa was as great as usual. Pasta w/ ragu, burrata, little meatballs...all great. Also continue to be so impressed with Dry Creek Kitchen. Food is very good and reliable. No hiccups anytime we've been there. Staff is also very well trained thanks to general manager Dan Prentice. Charcuterie Restaurant is also good, although for all the pig logos, there are only a couple of pork dishes. Good sandwich/salad place.

Cannot go to Healdsburg without going in Oakville Grocery for their wonderful Chicken & Gruyere sandwich. Warm and toasty, carmelized onlons...

    Thanks for the report. Haven't seen much about Charcuterie lately, sort of squeezed out by newcomers. What did you order?

    Still waiting patiently for Scopa's owner Ari Rosen to announce his new project.

      The website of the Scopa II project's architect spilled the beans.

        Funny, I was just at Scopa and Dry Creek Kitchen. Scopa was just outstanding and I was pretty impressed with Dry Creek Kitchen, too. I'd recommend both!
