One of our favourite places to eat in Bellingham. Right from the entry with the flaming fountain, you know the decor is themed and lovely. Inside, you pass the open kitchen with the hearthfire-style ovens, and are seated with spectacular views of the marina, the ocean, the islands beyond. Boats come and go in front of you and you feel you could be in Newport. The seats are tiered, so everyone gets a view.
The food is good, and they use lots of local ingredients. When we arrived, the rhubarb season had just passed, and it was time for strawberries. Another time it was Copper River salmon, some of the tastiest salmon on the planet.
Make reservations - unsurprisingly, the place is always full.
