Dry Creek Kitchen

Set on Healdsburg’s historic tree lined Plaza, Dry Creek Kitchen mixes vibrant American cooking and world class bottlings with the intimate charm of a small town and true wine country hospitality. The inviting, recently revitalized dining room is punctuated by sculptural floral arrangements, floor-to-ceiling windows and oversized doors which open to a garden terrace, evoking wine country’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

With a service staff committed to gracious conviviality, the adjacent event spaces provide an elegant private backdrop for social occasions as well as creative space solutions and stylishly productive environments for business retreats. It is wine country living at it’s best: a warmly modern atmosphere in a naturally beautiful setting.
