Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen Healdsburg offers world class dining in Sonoma County. This restaurant has the perfect blend of wine country charm and elegance. Under the direction of executive chef, Andrew Wilson, Dry Creek Kitchen continues to be “the place to go” for an outstanding meal in downtown Healdsburg.
We recently celebrated my wife’s birthday and were happy with the incredible food from beginning to end. She loved the flavors and variety of textures of the Sonoma chicken with rosemary garlic and yukon gold potato puree. Her side dish of duncan’s mushrooms was generous and tasty. The chicken was cooked just right.
I enjoyed a well prepared roasted liberty farm duck breast and confit of duck leg with a side dish of seasonal country vegetables. Everything was delicious! Upon the recommendation of the sommelier, Rolando Maldonado, we paired our meal with a bottle of 2014 Cuvee Blanc from Unti Vineyards.
This blend of Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul is a unique full bodied white wine that was an excellent pairing. Rolando went out of his way to discuss the local wines and even recommended wineries that we should visit. The wine list is extensive and the prices are reasonable. Tip: They waive the corkage fee on the first two bottles of Sonoma County wine that you bring in. What a deal!
We shared the caramelia mousse gateau with white chocolate sauce, chocolate tuile, and bittersweet chocolate ice cream. It was a scrumptuous ending to an amazing dinner.
Both 3-course and five-course tasting menus are available with or without wine. Enjoy contemporary and classic jazz on Monday and Tuesday evenings featuring local Sonoma County musicians. Dry Creek Kitchen is located across from the tree-lined Healdsburg Plaza in downtown Healdsburg. Dine outdoors on the vine-covered terrace or indoors in their elegant dining room.
