New restaurant opens in Suquamish
This sounds like a great place! Let me know if you get to try it before we do..which is likely. Here is the article I pulled out of the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal:
“Agate Pass CafÃ© opens in Suquamish
With a menu that includes pan-seared sockeye and stuffed date appetizers,, owner and Chef Marty Bracken along with partner Stacy Grega, have opened the Agate Pass CafÃ© in Suquamish. The restaurant serves up fusion inspired foods.
â€œWe try to prepare dishes with as much local, organic ingredients as possible,â€ said Bracken. The wine list includes a cabernet port created on Bainbridge Island. Local cheeses also compliment the appetizer and salad menus. Even seasonal greens from area farmers markets are given prominence in dishes when they are available.
Bracken, a Seattle transplant with decades of culinary and restaurant management experience, decided she wanted to open her own restaurant after doing the same for business owners in the city.
After upgrading the kitchen with state-of-the-art equipment, the two focused on creating an intimate dining experience for patrons. Art from two local sculptors adorn the walls, hand crafted tile mosaics finish the bar and hardwood floors compliment the space. There is even outside seating area for the warm summer months with a waterfront view of Agate Passage. â€œWe wanted to create a warm atmosphere, I think weâ€™ve accomplished that,â€ said Grega.
The Agate Pass CafÃ© is one of the first businesses to locate to the Downtown Suquamish Waterfront, an area the Suquamish Tribe is redeveloping for tourism. Several spaces for boutique businesses are also being considered for the properties adjacent to the cafÃ©.
Hours of operation are Wed. through Sat. for lunch and dinner, with brunch on Sundays. (Check their site for hours, it isn’t this extensive yet) The restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday. For more information visitwww.agatepasscafe.com, contact Bracken at email@example.com or stop by the cafÃ© at 7220 NE Park Way in Suquamish.”
