Under the Walnuts

Under the Walnuts is a culinary experiment removing the 4 walls and ceiling from a restaurant, giving PNW chefs an opportunity to use the freshest ingredients harvested from our field, cook over open fire and create a evening for an intimate group of diners unlike any other. 2019 includes a fantastic line-up of chefs; some first time, some returning, a new wine partnership with Indie Wineries and an even more thoughtful guest experience.
