Single Thread Restaurant to Host Dinners at Silver Oak Cellars

After a fire temporarily closed Single Thread last month, the restaurant will host a series of dinners at the Alexander Valley winery. Plus, a new opening date has been announced for sister restaurant, Little Saint.

Single Thread Restaurant & Farm will offer a limited series of dinners at Silver Oak Alexander Valley winery after last month’s fire, which has temporarily shuttered the Healdsburg restaurant.

All bookings at Single Thread’s restaurant have been canceled until the restaurant reopens. The dinners at Silver Oak will begin Friday and include a seven-course wine and food pairing with panoramic views of the Alexander Valley. Silver Oak, Twomey and other collector wines will be featured. Tickets cost $725 per person. Information at

In the meantime, owners Kyle and Katina Connaughton’s other project, Little Saint, is expected to open in late April. The plant-based restaurant and café is located inside the 10,000-square-foot space that previously housed SHED. (Curious foodies can sample a mezze plate prepared by the team behind Little Saint at Marine Layer Wines in Healdsburg. Read more here.)
