brRumors that longtime Healdsburg restaurant Bistro Ralph was, gasp, closing have turned out to be, as author Mark Twain would say, “greatly exaggerated”.

What is true: The restaurant has ended its Sunday brunch from 10a.m. to 3p.m.  as of July 27 (and are closed all day Sunday). The good news: Your chicken paillard and chicken livers are are still being served all day long, from 11:30a.m. to close. Phew. 109 Plaza St., Healdsburg.
