Paging Board-O (re: your Walla Walla trip)

I'm an idiot when it comes to the search function on these Boards. I couldn't find where/if you mentioned where you ate on your recent trip to Walla Walla. My wife and I are doing a weekend there.

Thanks in advance, Board-O.

We ate at The Marc both nights. We stayed in the hotel, The Marcus Whitman. A few notes-

1. Don't bring in a bottle that has obviously been opened. If you open it, push the cork back in before bringing it with you.

2. Don't get the tasting menu. Ordering ala carte was a much better meal.

3. Caddycorner from the hotel and a few doors south of the intersection on 2nd Avenue is a great deli and cheese shop that had some French wines at very good prices. Get provisions there for a picnic, which we had after we left Walla Walla in Wallowa State Park in Oregon.

4. Get a burger and a shake at The Ice Burg.
Thanks, Board-O. We were thinknig about a picnic, weather permitting. Looks like it's going to be a bit chilly.

Is Saffron worthy of the praise it gets?

I'll definitely try them, mneeley490!

We're haeding down to Milton Freewater, OR on Saturday because Leslie from Ellanelle Wines will be pouring their '09 Cab, and it's worth the trip, IMO. They're in the middle of apple harvest, so meeting at the winery wasn't in the game. Should be fun...
Yes!!

Saturday planned stops: Ellanelle (in Milton Freewater), Waters, Gramercy, Rotie.

Sunday planned stops: Seven Hills, Rasa, Buty.

Meals: Graze (lunch), The Marc (dinner), Maple Counter Cafe (breakfast), lunch #2 undecided.

Thanks for the ideas, again.

I've only been there once but wasn't terribly impressed with the food or service.

Also, if you're going to visit Waters winery, I'd suggest a stop at Saviah Cellars, Northstar Winery and Pepper Bridge Winery. They're all very close by, the have some great wines, and it's a really pretty country.

Another good/fun winery to visit in that area is Sleight of Hand.
