Healdsburg, CA – At 131 North Street in the heart of downtown Healdsburg, one of the country’s most accomplished chefs Kyle Connaughton, along with farmer and wife Katina Connaughton, have opened SingleThread Farm-Restaurant-Inn, a 55-seat fine dining restaurant with five exclusive suites. SingleThread provides guests a bespoke hospitality experience in the center of Sonoma Wine Country.
The experience at SingleThread offers guests a personalized culinary event that begins with canapés on the rooftop garden. Connaughton and his team will custom tailor one of three 11-course tasting menus featuring time-honored preparations of seasonally inspired cuisine. Guests will then proceed downstairs to the main dining room, designed by the award-winning AvroKO design firm, to enjoy the heart of their meal. In addition to an extensive à la carte wine menu, the dining experience will incorporate California-centric wine pairing options and a non-alcoholic pairing for a uniquely curated taste of Sonoma Wine Country.
Having lived for many years in Japan, the Connaughton’s will incorporate Japanese touches into SingleThread. Some offerings will include artisanal products, handmade custom dishes and donabe from 8th-generation master potters of Iga. SingleThread will focus on the concept of “omotenashi,” described as a heightened sense of hospitality and anticipation of a guest’s every need.
The Connaughton’s added, “We have had the good fortune of beginning this journey together over two decades ago. Our paths have been mindfully carved-out, both individually and collectively by our mutual admiration and respect of nature, and by the healthy well-being of our family, friends, guests, and each other.
SingleThread is a shared vision, and has been shaped by many mentors and experiences we’ve had throughout our lives. Now that our journey together has led us to Sonoma County, it is undeniably our greatest pleasure to grow new roots woven from our combined experiences and share our vision of hospitality.”
