Lo & Behold Bar + Kitchen opened in Healdsburg in January of 2022 and was dubbed “an instant Healdsburg icon” in the Press Democrat. Recently named one of Healdsburg’s Best Restaurants by Sonoma Magazine and voted Best Bar by the Healdsburg Tribune Readers poll, Lo & Behold has continued to endear itself to locals and tourists alike for it’s approachable price point, eclectic menu of global comfort food and cultivated cocktails, and warm and welcoming hospitality. Lo & Behold is owned and operated by three local restaurant industry veterans, Chef Sean Raymond Kelley (formerly of Underwood Bar & Bistro in Graton), and Tara Heffernon and Laura Sanfilippo, whom together have left their mark on the Sonoma County cocktail scene via Spoonbar, Duke’s Spirited Cocktails and now Lo & Behold. The space boasts a lively dining room, bar and lounge area inside, and a large garden patio out back.
