Where to eat north of Everett??
It's not a complete wasteland, but there are few nicer restaurants to rival DT Seattle. The Oyster Bar in Bow is one. The area north of Everett to Bellingham is more noted for its pub food and local flavor. If you watch "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives", it's that sort of unpretentious eating. Ask if you want suggestions, but give a radius from Stanwood.
