Walla Walla…Whitehouse-Crawford

OMG!  Whitehouse-Crawford Restaurant in Walla Walla, WA served up one of the most appetizing, flavorful meals I have experienced.  Yum!   The high tressled ceilings, open kitchen, warming fireplace, brick walls, and windows showcasing wine barrels from a local winery make for a warming ambiance.  It is suitable for a couple wanting a romantic evening, a business dinner or a group gathering.   We brought in our own local bottle of wine but also enjoyed a 1/4 bottle of Perrier Jouet (as it was Valentine’s weekend).  The appetizers chosen were crispy fried sweet onions and Vietnamese style deep-fried calamari with ginger and two dipping sauces.  The entree of choice was the House made spaghetti with Dungeness crab, fennel, and pancetta.  Absolutely delicious!  The flavors lingered.  Also, a bite was had of my Valentine’s Wagyu beef tenderloin steak with red wine sauce, mushrooms sauteed in foie gras butter and mashed potatoes.  The beef was incredibly tender and flavorful (medium-rare).  David P served us with professionalism and a quick wit.  Would love to tell you about the dessert, but was way to full and satisfied to indulge.  If traveling to Walla Walla this is one of the must go to dinner spots, you may also have the desire and time to try their six course chefs prix fix dinner, I hear it is wonderful. The Whitehouse-Crawford building used to be a mill and furniture factory…check out the history portion of the website.  http://www.whitehousecrawford.com/
