Fodor's Expert Review Dockside Bistro & Wine Bar
The marina views are only part of the appeal of this bright, modern bistro overlooking West Bay. It's the innovative, beautifully presented Asia-meets-Northwest cuisine that has foodies buzzing, not to mention friendly and efficient service and a stellar wine list. The food here focuses strongly on what's local and organic, with Totten Inlet steamer clams in white wine and local elk rib-eye carpaccio with juniper berries and green papaya salad starring among the starters. Worthy picks among the main dishes include pistachio-crusted Parmesan seasonal wild whitefish with arugula pesto and gnocchi, and seared sea scallops with a light watercress-saffron cream.
