Dry Creek Kitchen in the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg takes advantage of its prized location off the town’s historical Spanish-style plaza with warm, minimalistic design, vaulted ceilings, and towering floral arrangements. In warmer months, guests can enjoy wine country al fresco dining on the terrace or cozy up by a crackling fireplace on chilly Sonoma nights.
Under the direction of Chef de Cuisine Dustin Valette, a Sonoma County native who grew up in rural kinship with area farmers, the kitchen excels at sourcing and showing off its regional ingredient diversity in dishes like Scallop En Croute with spring onion fondue, celeriac bacon, chardonnay beurre “vert,” and Liberty Duck Breast with pinot noir-braised cabbage, scarlet turnips, and pearl onions. Located at the center of three richly producing wine areas—Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys—you can experience the region abundance even further in the neighborhood vineyard and food pairings. Dry Creek Kitchen offers international sophistication mixed with small town personality.
