Eats is how we brag about PT’s top-notch restaurants

Posted

In this week’s edition of The Leader you’ll find our first edition of a new special we call, “Eats.”

In the beginning, this was a completely selfish endeavor on the part of our staff - we looked for and enjoyed some of the best fare this area has to offer, and Eats is now showing you the results of our “research.”

Let’s face it, we all get lazy from time to time and want to skip the time it takes to prep a meal plus the ensuing washing of the dishes and sweeping the floor.

And after a day at work, you know you deserve a meal out on the town.

As luck would have it, Port Townsend and Jefferson County have some of the finest dining establishments this side of the Rockies.

That’s not an exaggeration, that’s a matter of fact as far as I am concerned. Having lived on the East Coast, in the Midwest, Southwest and the West, prior to moving to the Northwest, I can confirm that per capita, Port Townsend and Jefferson County have the best food in the country.

We’re lucky.

Moving past the selfishness, we can thank Alison over at the Silverwater Cafe. She turned what would have been pure hubris into a product that helps the entire county.

We worked in collaboration with a new local non-profit, “The Eats Local First Campaign,” and whether you’re a happy subscriber or an occasional reader of The Leader, or simply happen to pick up this first copy of Eats, you’re going to see the restaurants that supply food/drink grown locally.

It is our hope this will be the first of many Eats which you’ll see in the coming years.

Your community has come together, to not only grow you the most delicious food, but to cook it for you as well.

Whether it be the CSA that holds you through the smoldering summer or the chilling winter, the co-op that supplies the organic foods in your fridge, or the brewer who tempts your belly with Cascade hops, please take a gander at our newest publication and drop a dime or two at your local farms, breweries, wineries, cideries and restaurants.

Your tastebuds will thank you in unison.
