Congratulations go out to Chef Justin Gordon and his beautiful wife Bianca on the arrival of baby Graysen.
Graysen arrived on February 25 and recently stopped by the Oyster Bar where he was met with unanimous approval.
Here are our favorite things about Graysen:
1) He’s really adorable.
2) He loves to eat.
3) He know’s how to charm the ladies.
4) He’s a great dresser.
5) Worth repeating….he’s really adorable.
Graysen seemed right at home in Dad’s office chair and enjoyed his tour of the kitchen.
We’re looking forward to great culinary happenings in Graysen’s future, whether professional or just for fun.18
It’s the time of year when we start adding warm weather items to the menu. For the lunch menu, that definitely means Fish Tacos. This year’s version features a trio of fresh corn tortillas topped with fresh roasted rockfish, cabbage jicama slaw, cilantro, red onion, arbol chili sauce creme fraiche and avocado. Prefer halibut on your fish tacos? No problem. The same great preparation is available with halibut too.
The Smoked Trout Chowder is moving aside to make room for our new Samish Bay Clam Chowder. This lighter chowder is full of flavor and fresh Samish Bay clams, seared pork belly, root vegetables and thyme.
Three new desserts grace the menu. First up: Strawberry Trifle. Pound cake, strawberries, grand marnier custard and white chocoalte anglaise are layered for this really nice version of an old English favorite. Prefer your berries a little more naked? TheFresh Mixed Berry Pavlova is back. A light vanilla meringue is topped with fresh mixed berries, whipped cream, ruby port syrup and candied lime zest. This dessert is fat free if you order it without the whipped cream and is so flavorfull that it’s great that way too. We also now have Passion Fruit and Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee with a caramelized vanilla sugar crust, whipped cream and a vanilla sugar cookie.
Stay tuned as the menu’s changing every day.
Wishing you a great weekend!
Mother’s Day Menu
We love to spoil our Mom’s and the kitchen staff’s been busy preparing for a busy weekend of Mom pampering.
Fresh Petrale Sole from Oregon will be teamed with Fresh Local Coonstripe Prawns. These local, wild prawns are trap caught, sustainable and delicious, but the season is short.
Next up, Fresh Taku River King Salmon from Southeast Alaska teams up with oyster mushrooms, basil oil, balsamic syrup and fresh raspberries.
Also featured-Rack of New Zealand Lamb with kalamata olives, preserved lemons and pomegranate vinaigrette.
But Mom doesn’t want to live by Entree’s alone, so we have a new Spring Baby Spinach Salad with strawberries, red onion, blue cheese, roasted pepitas and warm honey poppyseed dressing.
New to the dessert menu are a fabulous rich and creamy Mango Coconut Cheesecake and a zesty Key Lime Pie.
