Our Spudtacular Salute to the Potato
Our menu this week is a tribute to the world's greatest tuber (and some would say, food, too!). The potato. This gift to humankind was a consequence of the Spanish conquistador's unslaking thirst for gold. Discovered high in the Andes mountains, the potato forever changed the culinary landscape of much of the world. The bounty of food it brought jump-started the social landscape of Europe.
For the past 6 months, we've raised potatoes and have scoured the region to come up a dozen heirloom varieties. Our 9-course menu features the potato in both traditional dishes as well as in avant-garde preparations. Paired with seafood, meats, vegetables, and other tubers, the menu explores the potato in form, color, and flavor. It's all there to wow and comfort you through the 9 courses from appetizers to dessert.
So loosen the belt (secure in the knowledge that potatoes have only 1/3 the calories of pasta!) and join us for this week as our chefs take on the challenge of these marvels of the Northwest. The glow of candles and romantic guitar waits to enchant you alongside of our nationally acclaimed culinary creations.
Our nightly Garden Tour begins at 6:30. Come at 6:10 (3:40 on Sunday), and we'll also have an Open House in the Wine Cellar where you can check out the 26,000 bottles of wines covering some 4,300 selections! This is also the most extensive collection of Oregon and Washington wines in the world.
I invite you to join us again this season for a remarkable and memorable evening. Celebrate a birthday or anniversary or just the pure joy of living. To reserve you table, give us a call at 425-485-5300 between 10 am and 5 PM, or here on line 24 hours a day!
See you soon!
