Cantina doors that open onto Healdsburg Avenue make this trendy eatery especially appealing in summer, when a warm breeze wafts into the stylish space. Midcentury modern furnishings, concrete walls, and a long communal table fashioned from rough-hewn acacia wood create an urbane setting for contemporary American fare. Chef Louis Maldonado, a 2014 finalist on Bravo TV's Top Chef and a champion on the network's Last Chance Kitchen, divides his menu into five sections, from which diners mix and match to create a meal. The mains might include lamb rib-eye stuffed with merguez sausage and escargots or barbecue-glazed flounder served with rock shrimp and corn and scallion ragout. The bar, known for inventive seasonal and historical cocktails, is the real draw for many locals.
