Some of the best restaurants in Healdsburg are located inside the city’s hotels. One of these is Dry Creek Restaurant, located inside Hotel Healdsburg. Charlie Palmer brings his NYC-style to this Healdsburg restaurant with hearty American cooking that plays with the bountiful local produce and pairs with — what else? — an extensive wine list composed exclusively of Sonoma bottles. And if you picked up a bottle or two that you loved during a fabulous Sonoma winery tour earlier in your vacation, bring it to dinner: the restaurant waves the corkage fee on your first two bottles from local wineries.
