    I went to the soft opening on Thursday night and we loved everything. The pork chop is the best I've ever tried. Nice wine selection and cute space.

      One of the hogs that was slaughtered was named "Bacon"!

      The owners have their own ranch that is said to raise Highland cattle . . . hear anything about this?

      And, did you see any pie?

      I hope they take down the Three Cooks sign soon!

      I work across the street, and have been wondering what was going in there. Must try soon.

        Lucky you! I'd love to hear about any pies, as there are no desserts on the online sample menus.

          There was a lemon icebox bar/pie type thing. It was delicious. I've forgotten the other dessert (too much wine). I think the cattle won't be ready for a year or so, and you're right they are Highland cattle. But I could be confusing that with the goats they said they were going to have.
          Also, I asked about the sign and the owners of the building won't let them take it down. I wish they would, it's so ugly!

        I never even realized Three Cooks was ever open because it always looked closed. When I saw Wishbone was open, I stopped in for lunch and had an open face beef sandwich with hoseradish sauce. It was very good. Will return with the SO for dinner sometime.

          You're right...even when it WAS open it looked closed! They did do a pretty good BLT...

          Am looking forward to trying Wishbone's BLT. I got a little snack the other day; prosciutto wrapped around apple and pear slices, with pomegranate seed garnish. Very nice flavor combo.

          Any recent updates on Wishbone. Looking for some new adventure not too far from Sonoma for tomorrow night - and not too $$$. Was salivating over the supper at SHED but 75$/pp is too much for this week alas

            We had a mixed experience at Wishbone. Very cool atmosphere for Petaluma. We ordered all the vegetarian items on the menu. We had four starters and each was both delicious and creative. We had the bread and butter, pickled eggs, brussels gratin and potato kale cake. All fun, unique and flavorful dishes. After those starters we were feeling so hopeful and excited that we finally found our perfect Petaluma restaurant. But the entree, the Rosemary Stacker, was one of the worst dishes we've been served in a while. Just a total miss with regards to flavors and preparation despite having a lot of good ingredients. We will most definitely give Wishbone another shot and feel confident that it will be better next time. The meat dishes coming out of the kitchen all looked great, especially the pork chop. So if you aren't limited to veggies you will most likely enjoy it quite a bit. Definitely a nice value, you can get a lot of plates and try most of the menu for a good price.

            Looks like Chowhound eliminated my rather harsh review. The service was pleasant- the food not. I agree with dbackman about the Rosemary stack and nothing else was very good either.

                Thanks for keeping track of me! I really did not want to believe it was eliminated. I just felt very strongly about the poor food!

                  Strong opinions about meals are always welcome! Especially when backed up with details and specifics as you did. Now we've had two people slam the Rosemary Stack . . . definitely a dish to avoid.
