Coupeville WA

Don’t judge a book by its cover: The Oystercatcher. From the street it looks like a burger and beer joint. Step up to the entrance and your impression doesn’t change....

Greenwater WA

Have wondered about this place for years: Naches Tavern. Apparently it’s been there for more than a century…I’m a bit slow on the visit. This experience was for a post...

A new old place: El Gaucho. It’s been a number of years since my last visit…and it’s not where it used to be! So, make sure you go to the...

Anacortes WA

Heard good things about this place: Bob’s Chowder Bar. Basically one of the first restaurants you come to as you enter town so it’s hard to miss. We visited on...

Finally: Ravenna Brewing Co. I have been driving by this place since it opened several years ago and finally dropped by to give it a try. Might also have had...

Virtual restaurant: Molly’s Garden. You read it correctly…a virtual restaurant. Really, it’s a takeaway place using Shawn O’Donnell’s locations. Our order was from the Fremont location. The Molly’s Chicken Salad...

A hidden gem: Baker’s. This is a place for cocktails, small plates and making new friends. Basically a “local” watering hole in the Sunset Hill area of Seattle. It’s one...

Walla Walla WA

Outstanding dining experience: Saffron. Bills itself as Mediterranean but it’s far more expansive that that term would suggest. Choices range from pasta to seafood to steak. We had 2 starters:...

Mochi doughnuts: Dochi. When it opened about a year and a half ago, the line was out the door so I waited for things to settle down a bit. The...
