A view of the Open Kitchen at Bistro Ralph's in Healdsburg
Sitting at the counter/bar at Bistro Ralph's serves up a great view of the chefs working their magic in the open kitchen. The waiters are delightfully entertaining characters, too.
I return again and again for the Lamb Burger with Caramelized Onions and Point Reyes Blue Cheese. The lamb is locally sourced, and like the wonderful Sonoma County wines offered, expresses its own terroir. The last time I was there, however, the aroma wafting from the steamed mussels set before the diner next to me, caused me to make a mental note for next time.
