Fodor's Expert Review Café Lucia

$$$ Healdsburg Portuguese

Healdsburg native Lucia Azevedo Fincher runs this Portuguese restaurant where diners go the all-tapas route—fried goat cheese and fried spicy pig's ear are two staples—or sample a few small plates before moving on to a full entrée. Tops among the latter are the Portuguese variation on paella and feijoada completa, the Brazilian national dish, a thick mass of stewed beef, pork, smoked sausage, and black beans.
