With its concrete walls, beautiful light fixtures, comfortable leather banquettes, and a lovely outdoor patio, Valette Healdsburg is delightfully rustic.
The main focus resides with the open kitchen, where a flurry of activity results in some of the most innovative dishes in California. Chef Dustin Valette proudly uses ingredients grown on local farms and meats from local growers. He cures his own meats, and you can see them hanging in the kitchen, adding to the rustic country kitchen feel.
The food, marked with delicate ethnic touches, is quite sophisticated. Some of the most popular dishes include Cacao Nib Crusted Liberty Duck Breast with Duck Confit and Strong Arm Farms Hibiscus and Chewy Granola Bar served with Goji Berry Salad and Blistered Cashews. Valette has a very nice selection of wines with vintages from small local wineries.
