Spoonbar Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Fronting the eco-certified h2hotel, Spoonbar’s hip retro-moderne design includes a communal table crafted from a single reclaimed acacia, blue Eames chairs, a cement wall adorned with raised yellow daisies and a waterfall of hypnotically see-sawing miniature spoons. The bar and restaurant literally spills onto the sidewalk near Healdsburg’s plaza: on warm days, an accordion glass wall frees the dining room past its usual confines.

Food & Drinks: Cocktails are memorable and fun, or choose from a list of intriguing old- and new-world wines, including a handful on tap. Chef Matt D’Ambrosi took over the kitchen and has revamped the small plates menu with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients. Dishes might include a starter of grilled octopus and peach salad, followed by oysters, pastas and mains of organic chicken tagine or pan-seared Alaskan halibut. Indulgent desserts might feature dark chocolate and hazelnut mousse.
