Winthrop, WA by ALEDM
We took a month for our road trip from Avon, CO to Vancouver, BC and did a lot of eating along the way. Our eleventh stop was Winthrop, WA and this is an excerpt from our blog posting on our stay there (go for more detail to
1. We went to dinner on our first night in Winthrop at a wonderful restaurant. It was practically next door to our hotel. It was called Arrowleaf Bistro, Winthrop, WA, tel. 509-996-3919, web: www.arrowleafbistro.com. We spent $47 and had a very good meal. The house it is in is historic and the rooms for dinner cheery with interesting art. There is also an outdoor deck with tables but we chose to sit inside. We shared everything as usual. We started with an order of smoked steal head and quinoa patties ($9) served with a tomato caper salsa fresca. We liked them. For our main, we had free range organic chicken stuffed with wild arugula lemon pesto and served with roasted polenta and wilted Filaree Farm greens ($23). We each had a glass of naked chardonnay ($5 each) and we enjoyed the meal; the service was lovely and so was the room and the food. We we getting the impression that Winthrop was a class act. After dinner we had decaf coffee (that we carry) and Dimitri had a sweet (that we carry in our larder) back in our room.
2. For breakfast the next morning, we decided to venture out. Three Fingered Jack's Saloon had been recommended by the nice woman in the Information Office (www.3fingeredjack.com tel 509 996- 2411). Our breakfast cost $17 and was not worth it. They have margarine (better known as plastic) only, no butter and fake maple syrup. The pancake was mushy, the eggs were dry, the hash browns were yucky and the coffee was weak. The bacon was good.
3. After our bike ride, we stopped for ice cream at Sheri's Sweet Shoppe (tel. 509-996-3834) where (we read) everything is home made. We had 2 delicious and well deserved cones ($2.25 each).
4. For dinner that night we went to Duck Brand, Winthrop, WA and sat out on their deck. We spent $31.17 + tip and shared one Halibut with pesto and penne for $18.50. Our server, Brian was good and we had a pleasant and good meal with three glasses of wine. After dinner we went back to our room where Audre made decaf coffee and Dimitri had one of our sweets.
