Husband and wife chefs Patrick and Casey Van Voorhis will be taking over the kitchen at Healdsburg’s popular Spoonbar.

The couple were tapped in January 2016 as co-executive chefs of the restaurant inside the swanky H2Hotel ( 219 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg). They’ll replace Louis Maldonado, the restaurant’s opening chef, who is rumored to be the new executive chef for Mugnaini. The wood-fired oven company recently opened a Healdsburg headquarters.

The Van Voorhis have both had extensive experience in haute SF restaurants including the Michelin-starred Acquerello, Quince, it’s sister restaurant, Cotagna, as well as Yountville’s Bouchon.

The new Spoonbar menu is still in development, but early dishes are slated to include Roasted Knoll Carrots with prosciutto, toasted walnuts and brown butter egg yolkRye Gnocchi with caramelized cabbage, and pumpkin seeds and Buttermilk Fried Quail with ragusa squash, charred onion and purple cabbage.

More details to come.
