On August 24th Lee will re-open the restaurant as Dinner, at the Nehalem River Inn. A farm-to-table restaurant that combines the standards of fine dining with a casual atmosphere, with a foundation of the freshest possible grass-fed meats and organic local produce.
I have every faith in her talent and we're all excited to explore the synergies of our local farms and her restaurant. To that effect I'm throwing my full weight behind her with a Cape Falcon remodel this winter. Hardwood floors, thick slab, live edge furniture and tables, edison bulbs, the new aesthetic will be one of heft, and substance, with as many items as possible made from local and salvage sources, finely finished of course. She'll be closing during the month of January and when she reopens you can expect to enjoy a this unique space while eating food that doesn't need my superlatives to validate it. In the meantime, I encourage you to come visit the coast and experience her cooking, maybe stay a night or two at the Inn.
