About 2 year(s) ago by The Heathman Hotel Fresh flavors, fresh ingredients and fresh air all go together at Trellis Restaurant in Kirkland as it kicks off the season of al fresco dining in Washington. On June 21, the removable walls around the Front Porch are coming down to a celebration of local wines, farm-to-table food and warm summer evenings with family and friends. Experience Happy Hour with summer flair as you sip the new Pomegranate Basil Martini or go for our favorites Trellis Kentucky Apple and Chocolate Devastation. Enjoy live guitar music by Angelo Pizzaro from 5 pm to 8 pm. And get ready to enjoy one of the best outside dining restaurants in Washington. Trellis Executive Chef Brian Scheehser has just rolled out a new menu for the summer, rooted in the top picks from his 10-acre farm in Woodinville. So count on savoring the freshest of local flavors, including salads picked the same morning and heirloom tomatoes bursting with flavor. Must have small-plate favorite? Steamed Black Mussels in White Wine with Shallots and Chorizo. Chef Brian has also recently launched a new line of gourmet cheeses at Trellis, so don't miss lavender rubbed aged jack, blueberry basil, carrot nasturtium, caraway, and farm inspired pepper-jack created in collaboration with master cheesemaker Blain Hages of Cherry Valley Dairy in Duvall, WA.
