Just off the press, Chef Dustin Valette’s new Healdsburg restaurant project officially has a name: Valette. This ain’t about ego, however. We’re wiping a tiny tear from our eyes after Dustin explained that the building (which has housed local institution Zin Restaurant & Wine Bar for years was once owned by his grandfather Honore Valette in the 1940’s.

“We spent some serious time thinking about what to call our new little ‘baby’ and we couldn’t get away from Valette.  It pays homage to our family’s history with the building,” said Valette.

So. Sweet.

Adding to the charm factor is the all-in-the-family vibe: Brother Les Garzini of Garzini Welding is making the restaurant’s charcuterie box and bro Aaron is co-owner of the forthcoming restaurant. Look for a spring opening.

  1. Let me know when you open and i will bring in the extended family. It’s been a long time since your days at the Ridge Ranch.

  2. I too am underwhelmed by DV’s food at the creek. Found it almost laughable. Small portions, overpriced and just mediocre at best. Hope the new restaurant will fare better but don’t have much faith. GL.
