Seattle is all of the wonderful things I love about Portland and reminds me of all the fun things I enjoyed in San Francisco.
I had chosen to visit The Whale Wins based on a picture that popped up in my Instagram feed (@thisvalleyblog) a handful of months ago. Naturally, I looked up the restaurant (and its sister restaurants) and obsessed over their menu*.
When I learned of the cookbook Renee Erickson had written, I immediately pre-ordered it.
I got to relive all the dishes I gushed over at The Whale Wins and The Walrus and The Carpenter.
Here are a few pictures of the most amazing meal I’ve ever had. Enjoy.
- the food (the most amazing marrow bones and the goat cheese plate that stole my heart)
- the perfect date night ambiance (look at that kitchen, the lighting, and the patio)
- the wonderful staff (that was so very accommodating)
If you ever get the chance to visit Seattle, go to The Whale Wins. I promise you will have the best dining experience.
*I will fight someone over marrow bones and tartare makes my heart skip a beat.
