….and then I started thinking about my favorite, relatively local, places I frequent that I have never written about, including this shining gem on Orcas Island. Maybe it’s because I’m always so lulled and comforted by the satisfying meals with a French flair I’ve enjoyed here over the years, but that’s no excuse, since these experiences so closely fit my definition of the perfect meal “elegant food in a rustic setting”. Rose’s truly offers the most elegant food on this remarkable rustic rock, and arguably the entire San Juan archipelago.

Emily….this post has me craving exotic travels and something really good to eat all at the same time!!
I always say life is too short to not enjoy great food:)

Yes, we will always have cheese! Sometimes I think I would give up chocolate before my fromage but it would be a tough call.
Thanks for featuring one of our local favorites, Emily. Your post has me itching to hop a Kenmore air flight for an Orcas lunch.
Happy Labor Day Weekend! XOXO

What a lovely tribute to one of the best restaurants on Orcas … and to think, I live on the island and get to visit whenever the urge hits me!
Lance, lucky you! I wish I could belly up to the bar and enjoy some of Dante’s amazing soup right now!
