Bellingham: Keenan's at the Pier (formerly Fino's)

I just heard about this change the other day and didn't think they were open yet, but apparently they are. Link below has menus. Anyone been there yet?

  1. Fino's is finito, eh ? (sorry, couldn't resist !)

    Ironically although we're no strangers to Chrysalis, we've never supped at Fino's. Brekkie there is alright, the space and ambiance is decent 'nuff.

    On a related note, couple of weekends ago I happened to have purchased half dozen cookbooks from a gent in B'ham who's moving, and in the process of ridding their household items, including his "500 cookbooks collection". His Craigslist ad is here in case you want to have a gander:

    The seller was coming up to Vancouver for some business anyway so he kindly brought my books up to make the transaction. In conversation he mentioned how Fino's is over-hyped for dinner.

      We never ate at Fino's. Not our kind of place and too $$$. We aren't into wine and the folks I know who liked it mostly enjoyed food/wine pairings. So, no loss for me. But, I was just talking with a friend recently and we were remarking on the dearth of good eats in Fairhaven, aside from lunch at Book Fare. Maybe Keenan's will be an option for waterfront dining.

      PS: That's a lot of cookbooks! With the convenience of online recipes I find I don't use my cookbooks that often any more.
