REAL EATS The beat on where to eat! Bravas!


The beat on where to eat!


Hello! Thank you for reading REAL EATS, the beat on where to eat. I thought I’d combine my love of good food with my passion for Real Estate and blog about local restaurants. I enjoy on sharing my favorite spots up and down the San Francisco Peninsula and beyond. I hope you have a chance to enjoy the amazing food our communities have to offer.

I’ve bookmarked all these restaurants (and more) on my Yelp page, please feel free to visit:

Chapter 2 – Bravas – Bar de Tapas – 420 Center Street, Healdsburg, Ca


For my second entry – I ventured away from the Bay Area. And I hope you do too! My husband and I were enjoying the Wine Country for a little get-a-way and house hunting when we came upon Bravas. We used Yelp to help us narrow down the search close to our hotel. There were so many choices but for some reason I was drawn to Bravas. With a click we made a reservation and little did I know the experience would last me a lifetime.

I love tapas, little plates of goodness and a nice cocktail. Well, Bravas offered this and so much more. Nestled in a craftsman home converted into this restaurant – I instantly loved the décor and mixed home and bar feel. It was like hanging out in your friends really cool home.  With a bar at the center, an awesome remodel  of modern mixed with rustic. I truly enjoyed it the moment we walked in.

Where to begin! We started with sliders – the Duck Boccadillo (meatball) and Pork Cheek Bocca. Wow! The duck was tender and well seasoned. The savory sauce it was serviced with, tomato sofrito and green olive purée was excellent. The pork cheek was a new experience for me – I’d never had it before. Wonderful portion of pork cheek, dripping with flavor and served salsa verde and pequillo pepper.

Next we had the Creamy Chicken, Ham & Gruyere Cheese Croquetas. Oh My God. Little bites of fried heaven. I really cannot say enough. We savored these! Then we had a little vegetable intermission – the grilled Asparagus served with aioli and sprinkled with cheese.

On to the Skirt Steak, served with red onion marmalade and valdeón cheese – was a delicious! I truly enjoyed the marmalade; it was a nice surprise, meat cooked perfectly. And then, we had the Octopus! This by far was my most favorite dish in taste and presentation. Served with smoked paprika and olives was amazing. The seasoning spot on and the Octopus grilled perfectly!

And when we didn’t think we had any more room – we had to try the Cider Braised Chorizo served with fried Shishito Peppers. What a delight. The peppers were fresh and crispy, the chorizo had a good spice!

Now doesn’t that sound delicious! We coupled our dinner with Mojitos, laughter and good fun. One of my best nights with my man! A wonderful food experience! So if you find yourself in Healdsburg – make sure to detour over to Bravas!
