A La Carte: Dry Creek Kitchen adds outdoor annex

Just in time for spring, Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen has added a casual outdoor annex, the White Oak Grill, serving lunch Fridays through Sundays.

Located in a courtyard between the restaurant and Hotel Healdsburg, the grill offers a locally driven menu, based around seasonal summer ingredients.

Appetizers range from Alaska Halibut Ceviche to Wild Mushroom Salad. Entrees include Oak Grilled Duroc Pork Belly and Black Angus Skirt Steak. Desserts range from Grilled Pain Perdue with Rhubarb Compote to Housemade Ice Cream and Sorbet.

Crisp, summery Sonoma County wines and a blend of creative cocktails, such as a Rhubarb and Lemon Verbena Shrub Cocktail, round out the menu.

The prix fixe menu includes three courses (appetizer, entree and dessert) or two courses plus one drink, for $32. Dry Creek Kitchen is located at 317 Healdsburg Ave. 431-0330. charliepalmer.com/dry-creek-kitchen.
