Hello to everybody on the Pacific Northwest Board, greetings from an NYC Chowhounder!
We are taking a road trip from Vancouver to Seattle in mid-August; we are hoping to spend some time around the San Juan Islands and the Greater Puget Sound area. I've searched the PacNW board near and far for suggestions for great seafood (and other interesting spots) along the way, but came up somewhat short.
I know the area is well known for its rich seafood bounties (dungeness crab, abalone, salmon, spot prawns, etc) but was sad to see no reports of great simple seafood stops, something akin to the Maine lobster pound or the Cape Cod seafood shack... or is this strictly an East Coast phenomenom?
Other recommended stops along the way would also be tremendously helpful--we'll probably be visiting during berry season, will stop by a few wineries, looking to put together a great chowhound roadtrip!
Thanks in advance,
