Call it a reverse evolution or maybe just a return to its roots, but Ravenous Restaurant has reopened in its original eight table space at next to the Raven Theater after shuttering the 420 Center Street bungalow it inhabited for nearly a decade.
On the menu are the rustic-luxe, farm-to-table eats including roasted tomatoes with fresh balls of mozzarella, basil pesto and pine nuts; crab cakes with cilantro aioli and roasted eggplant; fresh fish tacos; mascarpone cheesecake with swirls of lemon curd. The famous Ravenous burger was off-menu at our visit, but appeared at a regular’s table by request. Results may vary, but it’s certainly worth asking for.
Open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner (11:30am to 2:30pm, 5pm to 9:30pm), and Sunday for brunch (10am-2:30pm) and dinner (5-9:30 pm). 117 North Street, Healdsburg, 431-1302.
