I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about the Agate Pass Café in Suquamish, and it seems the Kitsap Sun’s restaurant reviewer Bernard Jacobson is among them. In his review, which will come out in our A&E section on Friday, he says:
“Her offerings combine with co-owner Stacy Grega’s warmly welcoming front-of-house direction, service by the equally pleasant and efficient Rachael, attractive decor featuring red lamp-shades and some intriguing light-boxes, and unusually elegant menu cards to confirm a place among the top half-dozen fine-dining spots within an hour’s drive of Bremerton.”
It seems the North end has become an apparent epicenter of good eating in Kitsap. Poulsbo has Burrata Bistro. Bainbridge Island has its Four Swallows, which recieved very good to excellent ratings in the latest Zagat’s Seattle survey (25 for food, 21 for decor, 23 for service on a 0 to 30 scale, and managed to be the only place in Kitsap listed in the guide .) I’m also partial to Sawatdy’s Thai on Bainbridge, but that could be because I had one of my first real dates with my now-husband there. Also in Poulsbo-ish, Molly Ward Gardens, but again, I’m biased. I was married there.
I’m drooling. Just about a pool forming at the keyboard. It’s definitely time for dinner. I’ll be back later this week with some info on some food that’s not quite fine dining: the humble dog.
