Northwest | Leavenworth, East of Seattle

We went for a date night. The food was amazing, the restaurant is a bit off the beaten path but SO WORTH IT, beautiful location and great big windows where we watched the snowfall - I imagine it’s very nice in summer too. We’ll definitely be back. More

Farm-to-table | Leavenworth, East of Seattle

Mana is not a place to simply get a meal while visiting Leavenworth. Mana is a stand alone event. Each dish served was explained in detail how it was prepared and how the ingredients were acquired. The entire experience was one we will cherish forever. Many thanks to the management and staff of Mana for a great birthday for my bride of 32 years. Plus they didn't even make her wear a sombrero, LOL..... More

Steakhouse | Yakima, East of Seattle

I have been a few times. They have great steaks. Prime rib was excellent. Very good selection of wine and whiskeys. Very good local craft beers. Deserts were also excellent. A more higher qulaty/expensive type of restraunt but definitely worth it. Great restraunt. Highly recomended. One of my favorites. More

Discover East of Seattle

The many small towns in Eastern Washington yield some delicious restaurant finds with many focusing on locally raised beef, fresh seafood, and the state’s delicious produce. You can find many restaurants specializing in farm-to-table specialties while others specialize in fine prixe fixe menus. The arid weather yields plenty of fruits like cherries, apples, and blackberries that chefs use to prepare seasonally changing pies. Lunchtime diners find many great hamburgers. While many are made with beef, others feature goat, turkey, or vegetables. Dining on pancakes, crab omelettes, and fruit crepes while visiting with a group of friends is a great way to start the day. Consider ending the day with a small plate dinner while taking advantage of Washington’s booming craft beer industry.
