And by that, we mean having someone else do it for you on a six-foot, custom, Argentinian-style, wood-burning grill... season.
The kind of grill that’s the centerpiece of the Brass Rabbit, a new Healdsburg Square restaurant that’s heavy on the lobster thermador and carnivore-friendly things. It’s the brainchild of Chalkboard’s chef, it’s open now, and here’s the slideshow.
After a day of wine touring, you and your date will walk in and grab seats in a black leather banquet, noticing the bunny heads adorning the brick wall (don’t fret, they’re brass, of course).
After recapping the day and saying things like “I’m really glad we’re out of the city and under these bunny heads right now,” the grilled eye of rib with red wine-braised Cipollini onion, duck fat potato and bordelaise will show up. So will the lamb wellington that your date’s having. Both of you are having a drink to congratulate yourselves on being yourselves.
Speaking of, classics are favored. Read: Martinez’s with Anchor Old Tom Gin, sweet vermouth and maraschino. And Aviations with Lighthouse Gin, crème de violette and lemon.
And wine. Sometimes there’s also wine in wine country.
