Mystery solved on the opening of Beaudry’s Roadhouse in Sebastopol. Chef-owner Frank Stephenson has long had his eye on the roadhouse midway between Sebastopol and Forestville on Gravenstein Hwy., first as Elmo’s and then as the Henweigh Cafe. “I’m from Sonoma County, its like getting back home for me,” says Stephenson, who’s owned the Boar’s Breath Restaurant and Bar in Middletown for years. The restaurant officially opened on Friday, and will serve lunch and dinner with comfort dishes from burgers ($11-13), to salads, fried calamari and larger entree dishes including pork chopp with buttermilk mashed potatoes, spaghetti and meatballs ($16), St. Louis style ribs ($17) and steak. On Sunday, they’re planning on hosting a barbecue and fried chicken night and $5 burger night on Wednesdays. 4550 Gravenstein Hwy North, Sebastopol, 829-7500, beaudrysroadhouse.com.
