Heritage is on a roll with a new Ballard tasting room, soon to be followed by Capitol Hill. This on top of two Gig Harbor locations, Rosyln, and Eugene. And, yes, the spirits are delicious.

Petite Galerie

Chef/owner Rob Sevcik (formerly with Thierry at Rover's and Loulay) has opened a lovely spot in Madison Valley. It's a must-try.
