Healdsburg/Restaurants please for July 15th ,16th &17th
I am heading to Healdsburg for two days for a concert at Rodney Strong on July 15th a Sunday night.Looking for lunch suggestion in town for Sunday afternoon and dinner and lunch Monday and breakfast and or lunch on Tuesday ...there will be 10 of us don't mind spending some dough on at least one meal but also would like some less expensive suggestions as well.We won't always be eating together as a large group of 10 .Thanks.
Cyrus for a French Laundry type meal.
The usual suspects are:
Barndiva (may be closed on a few of those days, but I think is open Sundays)
Zin gets good reviews on Yelp, but was just there the other week and while the food is acceptable, it's not particularly inspired.
Campo Fina by the owners of Scopa has opened. No reports here yet, but I'm hearing good things from friends. It accepts reservations for groups of 8 or larger, whereas Scopa would only be suitable for the times the OP's group splits up. And its open daily for dinner. Check out the bocce.
re: Melanie Wong
Thanks Melanie and all the other hounds...we will look into Campo Fina.I called Barndiva but they are closed Monday and Tuesday.I put in a reservation for one night at Zin....Breakfast at Downtown bakery and I think we will bring in a pic nic to the Al Green concert from Oakville grocery.That leaves one more night...hmmmmm what to do.
i love eating in Healdsburg!
Bovolo is a great, more casual place to eat. It makes for a great meet up spot when shopping around on the town square. I love it, it can be a great lunch or a great late breakfast. (not sure what time it opens in the morning). It shares space with the bookstore on the square... can't remember the name, but it's easy to find.
Dry Creek Kitchen is another fine dining place - maybe it has lost its luster compared to places like Cyrus, but I had an enjoyable meal there last year.
I always enjoy grabbing a sandwich from Oakville Grocery, there is one near the square.
A couple of budget-friendly suggestions are Taqueria El Sombre and Downtown Bakery and Creamery. At Taqueria El Sombrero, the chilis rellanos are excellent, although I found the tamales disappointing. Very simple taqueria ambience, just off the plaza. At Downtown Bakery, the salads and the calzones are really great. The pastry is incredible. I especially like the napaleons and the vanilla cupcakes with butterscotch frosting. I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't tried the ice cream, tho' I've heard it's great. I never can resist the pastry so haven't left room for ice cream.
