4. Epic food scene.
Where there is good wine, good food is always around the corner. Living in Woodinville is an exciting place to be for a seasoned foodie, and local ingredients and rotating menus will keep your palette busy. Here are a few of our picks.
The Hollywood Tavern - fresh, seasonal, and local. We’re tempted to visit and try their smoked gouda, parmesan, cauliflower, and caramelized onion mac and cheese.
21 Acres Farm is more than a farm - it’s a market; a school offering classes “dedicated to helping people learn how to grow food, eat well and live sustainably”; and an agricultural resource for Woodinville residents and businesses.
