Chalkboard, located in the Hotel Les Mars lobby, is a casual, contemporary yet classic restaurant that brings a fresh and approachable option to the Healdsburg dining scene. Chalkboard's ever-changing small plates menus is defined by McAnelly's access to quality seasonal ingredients and celebrates the best of what Sonoma County has to offer.
Chef McAnelly, previously Executive Chef at Va de Vi in Walnut Creek, sources much of his menu from local purveyors and farms with many ingredients coming from the restaurant’s own dedicated 3-acre garden located at Foley's nearby Chalk Hill Winery estate. McAnelly is working closely with a Chalk Hill gardener to grow organic produce and herbs solely devoted to supplying the restaurant with fresh ingredients including fava beans, asparagus, greens, beets and heirloom tomatoes. As McAnelly has worked closely with Bay Area farms throughout his career, this garden allows him to become even closer to the source of his ingredients.
