As a Washington State native, I grew up with the fresh seafood and produce native to the area. I look forward to local strawberries in the spring & sweet corn in late summer. As well as fresh caught Dungeness Crab out of Puget Sound and the flavorful beef produced by local farmers. The Northwest offers an abundance of wonderful ingredients to work with.

This is how most mornings would start - Almond croissant and raisin sweetroll with a cappuccino. Light, flaky and buttery. Most of the time we would get pastries to go and enjoy them on the beach. You cannot beat that!
Palm Beach is technically a beach bar because it's on the beach, but it's a far cry from a tiki hut. With warm breezes and the sound of the crashing surf we noshed on beef carpaccio with foie gras. Hows that for decadent? We also enjoyed a lovely Dona Paula Malbec with our meal.
Another highlight of our trip was Ti Bouchon. This is a repeat visit for us and did not disappoint. The owner Momo, always delights us with stories and experiences. Plus his wine recommendations are spot on. We started our meal with an awesome appetizer of shrimp with a cucumber coulis and strawberry salsa. Main courses included seared scallops for me and slow roasted rack of veal for the hubby. Everything was amazing as always. Thank you Momo!
We immensely enjoyed our vacation to St. Martin. We have had such awesome food, great wine, and met some amazing people. I hope that we are able to continue our yearly visits to this wonderful island!
