Orcas Island Dining

Ship Bay usually closes up in Dec-January (as do many places on the island). The owners take a long vacation. I was on the island earlier this month and wanted to go but they were closed. :(

Fabulous downtown brunch?

I'll second the rec for Steelhead Diner. You might also venture up to Madrona for a scone or cheese baked eggs at Hi-Spot. YuM!

Things that don't necessarily agree with you, but you eat anyway ...?

most dairy...creamed soups, cream sauces, ice cream, cheesecake, etc.

I usually check in with my dining (and sleeping!) companion before going ahead with such indulgence. "Honey, would you mind if I flatulate for the rest of the night so I can now enjoy....?" !

Veggie Soup Base? [moved from The Best board]

Imagine Foods also has a "No-Chicken Soup" stock that's pretty good. More flavor. I have used it for my matzoh ball soup in the past with mixed reaction. I like it a lot, but others seem more tied to a 'real' vegetable broth.

First time in Monterey--restaurant suggestions, please...

I'll be traveling to Monterey this weekend. Please provide your suggestions for dining.
We're interested in a variety of places-- breakfast, casual, and one killer experience where price doesn't matter much. We are both seafood lovers but only one red meat eater.
Thanks!

A New York Pizza Place (long) - Seattle

I agree that the crust is one of the best highlights at A New York Pizza Place...as it should be. You all might want to know that you can buy their dough frozen at Whole Foods and Central Market (probably other places too). Makes a fantastic pizza at home!

pagliacci's pizza newbie

For some good new york style pizza, check out A New York Pizza Place at 8310 Fifth Ave. N.E., between Maple Leaf and Northgate. It's a little dive, no atmosphere, but the pizza is great. They have a bar where you can order by the slice, or enjoy a big, floppy full pie at a table full of friends. Yumm!

Haven't been to either of these places, but there is the Queen Mary Tea Room in the U-District and also Teahouse Kuan Yin on 45th in Wallingford.

Best Place for Well-Priced Produce

Someone has already mentioned Ballard Market. I concur, and will add two others that are part of the same group: Greenwood Market and Central Market (Shoreline) are fantastic. Central is the largest, with greatest selection and very helpful staff. Unsure whether you'll like something before buying it? Ask, and you shall taste! I think that makes a wonderful shopping experience.

Indian in Seattle? Vietnamese? Gyros?

I send the vote for Mr. Gyro. I'm a vegetarian, so I've only had the fallafel there, but it's pretty fantastic. Simple food, very fresh, and friendly service.

Orcas and San Juan Island---best bets

Christinas is pretty good. Yes, sometimes a bit over-rated but always satifying.
My favorite food on Orcas is really the Inn at Ship Bay. A relatively unknown place on the way from Eastsound to Rosario. www.innatshipbay.com

I also think their own description of their food is really better than I could say it:

"Food for Thought: Inn at Ship Bay's Dining Room offers seasonal menus that predominently feature fresh locally farmed products. We strive to use only sustainably harvested seafoods and antibiotic - hormone free meats & poultry as available. All of our foods, breads, and desserts are created in-house, using the finest products we can find. We make every attempt to source the majority of our produce locally. Our food is fresh, produced daily and wholesome. Our bread is baked using a sourdough starter that is over 100 years old."

They also feature an extensive wine list mostly WA and OR and CA. Menu changes regularly and with the seasons best stuff from Orcas and the Islands.
