Healdsburg: Late Summer Skinny
As summer draws to a close along Wine Road, figured I would give you a brief compilation of what has caught my eye as particularly cool or unique or incipiently so as I roam about the ‘burg. In no particular order:
The Taverna Sofia is getting close to opening, late October, in the former space occupied by Bovolo at Copperfield’s Books on the Downtown Healdsburg Plaza. I love the trompe l’oeil mural depicting a right smashing view of Santorini’s Oia- looks like baked goods and Mediterranean classics, al fresco and also inside.
This is the patio to the south.
Over on Mill Street, I have heard rumblings of a new place called The Parish Cafe, New Orleans and Cajun styled food. Under construction remodel, mysterious….
Bravas Bar de Tapas is nearing their opening….
Speaking of Center Street:
On the site of the old post office, burned to the ground in 2010, Seghesio Winery is about to launch in 2014 their Healdsburg Meat Company, which will also feature their wines, and all sorts of other cool stuff.
Immediate neighbor to the west is the Hank & Maggie Wetzel Native Plant Garden; totally cool.
This next gig is my absolute favorite thing- not brand-new, but a Healdsburg Local’s Secret. We have the Raven Film Center with Hollywood & Wine where a glass of wine, a comfy seat in a magical theatre and popcorn can be yours! They even food/wine pair! This is my absolute go-to favorite! An oasis of choice, first run films, my favorite wines by the glass and theatre popcorn- absolute heaven….
Here’s looking at you, kids.
