Still one of my favorite places in all of Sonoma County to eat, it was also fun to design and build. I was experimenting with building furniture out of durapalm a sustainable building product made from renewable palm wood that has held up nicely over the years. It was so attractive we also used it for wainscotting. I loved combining this modern green product with the classic antiqued tin celling and the new orleans style painted shutters for the cozy booths. The green walls reflected nicely in the smooth concrete floors and made the whole place very easy on the eyes and then there is the amazing Seafood. Fresh chilled local oysters and ceviches and nothing better than their signature fried Calamari with chile orange sauce. Well maybe the buttery lobster roll. Best Cocktails in town and of course they have a wonderful selection of our California wines. This place is a sweet spot in Healdsburg.
Designing spaces for Mike and Molly was a joy. They knew what they wanted and we combined some beautiful ideas into their timeless space. They are so good at what they do that Hawks became a classic from day one. Michelin has their number and its always a special occasion seeing what they are putting together each night. Even with their more casual Provisions and Public House the quality of what they put on the plate is local fresh and seasonal as well as delicious. They are an incredible couple and their professional team reflects their family attitude in both fine and casual dining settings. Its a winning combination of talent and great ingredients with an incredible team.
Owning the Gypsy Cafe for the last 11 years was a designers dream. I got to put all of my favorite things into my sweet cafe and it was my second home. Not to be forgotten now that we have had to close the doors, I am still proud of this space as it was always a joyful experience for both customers and my wonderful gypsy family. I am heading back into design of other restaurants and projects but my heart is still missing our crew and friends. Keep in touch if you need anything I might be able to help you with or just to say hi.
