Standing practically on the beach, Wayfarer is one of the city's favorites when it comes to honest local cooking and stunning views of the sea. Step inside the restaurant and you'll be greeted by a charming lodge-style dining room with its huge wooden beams. There has been a visible effort to not play with the original interiors with old-school lamps hanging from the beams over each table and a muted color palette across the restaurant. There are flashes of contemporary touches though with a suspended wooden frame carrying what appears to be glass lit lanterns being the highlight of the room. Woods feature extensively in the decor and pretty much set the cozy vibe of the place. Excecutive chef Josh Archibald delights with his approach to the delights of the Pacific Northwest with a menu that is a harmonious mix of the classics as well as innovative takes. Seafood is a specialty with the menu revolving around the freshest catch available. Chill out at the lounge with a selection of cocktails. Check website for more.
