This restaurant is known for its innovative cuisine. Blending elements of traditional Pacific Northwest and pasta dishes is the signature creation of alder-smoked chicken and fresh rigatoni with dried cranberries and toasted hazelnuts in champagne cream sauce. Another good choice is Dungeness crab and bay shrimp cakes with chipotle aioli. The master baker creates sinful desserts on the premises, too. The open, airy patio is a great place to relax.
