I thought that the snow we got yesterday was ludicrous. Apparently Spring decided to hit the snooze button a couple more times.
Luckily, the snow stopped, the sun came out, and we were able to enjoy a special date-night. Today is Boyfriend and my two year anniversary. To celebrate, he took me to the Attic at Salish Lodge. The Salish Lodge is located in Snoqualmie and sits at the top of Snoqualmie Falls, a waterfall made world-famous in the 1990s TV show, Twin Peaks.
The Attic is a casual dining room with a menu that features a number of small plates, sandwiches, and wood-fired pizzas. What a lot of people don’t know (apparently including a bunch of the reviewers on Urban Spoon!) is that in addition to the Attic’s menu, you can order off of the full Salish Lodge Dining menu. When our server noticed my camera, she invited me to go see the private deck on the other side of the Attic, where I could take pictures of Snoqualmie Falls from the top. I really appreciated that!
We ordered a couple of glasses of Delmas, Blanquette de Limoux (champagne) and the Steamed Manila Clams (Preserved Lemon, Spanish Chorizo, Arbol Chile, Pimento Broth, Grilled Rustic Bread) to start. For dinner, we ordered the Washington Pear and Fig Pizza (Salish Honey Fig Spread, Caramelized Onions, Prosciutto, Arugula Bleu Cheese) and the Pan-Seared Columbia River Steelhead (Salish Honey Glazed Root Vegetables, Castelvetrano Olives, Yukon Potatoes, Hazelnut Emulsion). Boyfriend chose a glass of Broadly Pinot Noir from Oregon and Gilbert Cellars Grenache-Syrah from Washington to accompany dinner (we were sharing everything). For dessert, we had the Salish Signature Chocolate Soufflé (Valrhona & Grand Marnier Chocolate Sauce, Salish Honey Ice Cream). The food was delicious, the service was attentive, and the live music, played by Jarrett Renshaw, made the Attic so warm and romantic. Add to all of that the best table in the house, and we had a lovely night.
