Just in: Restaurateurs Jeff and Susan Mall of the longtime Healdsburg restaurant Zin are closing. The restaurant recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and has won countless awards for its unique Southern twists on Wine Country cuisine.
Here is the email that went out:
Dear family, friends and members of the Healdsburg community,
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that after 15 years we say goodbye. Due to circumstances beyond our control, Zin is permanently closing its doors on December 30, 2014.
We owe our success to the talent of our loyal employees, our customers’ kind patronage, the support of our town’s community network, and the unshakeable support of our friends and family.
The spirit of Zin will live on with local chef Dustin Valette (currently of Dry Creek Kitchen) taking over ownership of the restaurant and building. The restaurant will undergo a name change, minor renovations and will re-open in early 2015.
Your support over the years has meant the world to us. Please come see us over the next few weeks; the staff will be happy to see you, the kitchen will be cooking its heart out, and we’ll make these last meals together really count.
With fond regards,
Jeff & Susan Mall
Chef Dustin Vallette of Dry Creek Kitchen will be taking over the restaurant space.
More details as they come in.
