40th Birthday Dinner
So... I turn the big 4-0 next month and would like to go somewhere special. Any suggestions? Various places I've already been:
Rovers, Le Gourmand, Rainier Club (chef's table), Book Bindery, Canlis, Herb Farm, Salish Lodge, Palisades, The Met, Chez Shea, and probably some that I've forgotten.
I was thinking about another trip to Le Gourmand or Rovers, but am open to trying something new.
+1 on Le Gourmand, as it is a now-or-never situation!
You might see if it is not too late to do a destination dinner and see about dinner (and an overnight there, or somewhere nearby like Bham) at Willows Inn on Lummi Island.
Sounds like you are a serious eater enough that you would enjoy the hyper-local farm/sea-to-table aproach of the chef, formerly of NOMA.
An overnight up there would be a great experience. I haven't been yet, but my parent's did, and it was a lovely experience. A very edgy, modern version of Herbfarm.
Thanks for the good advice. I think I'm going to Le Gourmand before it closes. It sounds like Rovers is a bit spotty lately. I'll have to add Willows to my list, but for another time when I can stay overnight.
