My boyfriend and I are spending Saturday in Montesano and are then staying overnight in the Grayland/Westport area, and enjoying the scenery on Sunday. I've found only a few mentions of that area on this board. Does anyone currently have ideas for good things to eat in that area? We're not so much into processed, deep-fried foods or chains, but like fresh, creative foods, local ingredients, vegetarian food, and things like that. I love fish, but don't eat shellfish, though he's an oyster addict and I've seen at least one reference to good oysters in the area. Would love suggestions for meals as well as for, say, the one little bakery/cafe/sandwich place/whatever that one must stop into for some specialty snack.
Also open to suggestions for places on the road from Seattle to Westport, since we may want to get dinner on the road on the way home.
By the way, since it would probably be of interest to chowhounds, what brings us to the area is a work party at the Estrella Family Creamery, makers of all that good cheese. They had some wind damage back during the storm and are welcoming volunteers this weekend to help out, clearing branches etc. I'm excited to see the place. If this interests you, contact them via their website www.estrellafamilycreamery.com to see if they still need volunteers; they were asking people to RSVP.
