Welcome back to the I-5 High Five, a look at restaurant news from up-and-down the Pacific Northwest corridor.
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND: Cookbook author, food writer, and former Canlis chef Greg Atkinson opens his highly anticipated Restaurant Marché this Saturday (March 17) on Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride away from downtown Seattle. A menu sneak peek reveals French-meets-Pacific Northwest influences (think local lamb en brochette, grilled Lummi Island wild salmon, and a green pea "flan" served with morels). Eater Seattle has the Inside shots. [-ESEA-]
