In downtown Seattle, just steps from Pike Place Market, Ben Paris is in the heart of puffy jacket country. Diners will feast on Chef Quinton Stewart's special Dungeness Crab Roll while downing bar maven Abigail Gullo's Noggy by Nature cocktail – a distant (and more fun) cousin of boozy eggnog topped with a toasted marshmallow. After dinner, guests will be invited to the private rooftop terrace bar at The State Hotel where they'll roast s'mores and sip spiked cider with dazzling views of Pike Place Market, Elliot Bay, and beyond.
Copperleaf Restaurant boasts Seattle's best-kept-secret hidden patio. You'll feel right at home on the covered, heated terrace, bundled up by a roaring wood-burning fireplace. The star of the Puffy Jacket show is the Seafood Beach Boil, brimming with clams, mussels, cod, smoked salmon, red potato, and cilantro pesto. To warm the soul, pair your boil with a local 2bar Spirits whiskey flight.
Salish Lodge is primely positioned atop a Washington state landmark, hovering at the edge of Snoqualmie Falls. Puffy Jacket guests will have the unique opportunity to dine in a fabulous heated tent, adorned with romantic string lights and cozy fire lamps. Start your meal inspired by the west side of Washington with Grilled Pacific Oysters, then venture east with a Palouse Cassoulet, featuring braised Chicken, elk sausage, pork belly, and farro. A visit to Salish wouldn't be complete without a taste of their famous house-made honey; even better if it comes in the form of a Bee's Knees cocktail.
Friday Harbor, Washington
There's nothing more PNW than watching the ferries drift in and out of Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The restaurant at Friday Harbor House provides the perfect perch to do just that while dining on fare from award-winning Executive Chef Jason Aldous. For the Puffy Jacket crowd, Chef Jason is preparing a special four-course prix fixe menu at a steal for $59, featuring winter vegetable bagna cauda, house-made pasta with Taylor Shellfish geoduck, San Juan Island lamb, and an elevated twist on the classic s'more.
Kick back on the covered terrace at Hearth right along Kirkland Avenue. Cozy up to the fire in your flannel blanket and sip artisan crafted warm libations while celebrating the abundance of Pacific Northwest ingredients. The Puffy Jacket menu will take you on a journey of foraged and harvested bounty like local mushrooms, oysters, and lamb, paired with a Pine Whiskey Sour and appropriately named Socks & Sandals cocktail.
At Jetty Bar & Grille, true Pacific Northwesterners arrive by boat. Just steps from the Everett Marina and with sweeping water and mountain views, you'll dine on dishes inspired by the seafaring surroundings. At the Puffy Jacket Pop-Up, all eyes are on the Hot Toddy Bar. Pick your poison between apple, ginger, and the classic Jetty Toddy – either way, you can't go wrong.
No location warrants a puffy jacket more than JJ Hills Fresh Grill, in the heart of Leavenworth at Icicle Village Resort. With snow falling overhead, you'll stay cozy on the covered, heated patio as you marvel at breathtaking views of Washington's iconic winter wonderland. Enjoy a five-course prix fixe menu for just $50, and don't forget to add on a hot cocktail served in a Puffy Jacket Camp Mug – keep the mug for an extra $8 for your future outdoor imbibing adventures.
Located in its own beautiful corner of the world at the end of a long sand spit and surrounded by water, sits Packers Kitchen + Bar at Semiahmoo Resort – just far enough to get away, and just close enough for an easy weekend trip. Sunsets are other-worldly at Packers, and guests will be treated to prime sunset viewing at the Puffy Jacket Pop-Up Happy Hour. Packers is going literal with Puff Pastry Hand Pies chock full of local ingredients like Sage & Sky lamb, Nerka Salmon, and Samish Bay Cheese. Pair your pie with a Hot OF (improved winter Old Fashioned) or a Million Degree Margarita, then gather around the campfire to roast s'mores. Puffy Jacket seating at Packers is casual first come, first served – order at the bar then enjoy your meal around the fire.
Cannon Beach, Oregon
We couldn't call this a PNW-inspired event without a little beer in the mix. Public Coast Brewing Co. in Cannon Beach is THE destination for locally-crafted beer, and they'll be pouring the good stuff alongside classic comfort food on the quintessentially PNW patio decked out with Adirondack chairs and sounds of the Pacific in the background.
After a day on the course at Echo Falls Golf Club, visit the newly renovated Strikers' Bar & Grille. The star of the Puffy Jacket menu is a Raclette Skillet with roasted fingerling potatoes, pancetta lardons, grilled asparagus, charred Walla Walla onions, and peppers nestled under ad bubbly layer of melted Raclette cheese. And don't forget the cocktails; the Rusty Tee is right at home on the green.
Waterleaf Restaurant is transforming into a classic smokehouse for Puffy Jacket-ers. If you're feeling daring (and hungry), spring for the 24oz Court's Cut Prime Rib with a Cinnamon Vodka Gimlet on the side.
Cannon Beach, Oregon
In Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock rules all. And Puffy Jacket goers will dine with front-row views of the famed landmark at The Wayfarer. Guests will keep warm with Tillamook White Cheddar Fondue, or taste the bounty of the sea with the Wayfarer Clam Bake, an epic feast of Dungeness crab legs, Oregon manila clams, wild gulf prawns, bratwurst, red potatoes, corn on the cob, white wine, butter, and fresh herbs.
