Walla Walla Insider ~ Restaurant Moves (11/17)


November ushers in a change of format and name for The Ox & Cart Restaurant on First Street. The new name will be the Saint & the Sinner envisioned as a hip Latin American cantina. Open everyday, 11am. 

"With price points from $7 to $18, the new spot is designed as a come-as-you-are casual dining place that explores everything from flavors to art in Latin American cooking and culture."

In July, Salumerie Cesario (also known as Walla Walla Gourmet) closed their doors at 12 E Main Street. In its place is Walla Walla Indian Cuisine, a welcome addition that brings much needed culinary diversity. The brothers-in-law are from Vancouver BC and Calgary respectively and the seven cooks in the kitchen are all from Mumbai. Excellent food and an ambitious menu. Lunch 11-2PM. Dinner 5-10pm. Full bar. 

Jacobi's closed their doors last week. In time for Cayuse Weekend 2018, a new steakhouse and brew restaurant will open - operated by two well-known names in the Seattle restaurant sphere: Paul MacKay, involved with numerous restaurants such as El Gaucho and The Metropolitan Grill and Chef Dan Thiessen. 

Thiessen has spent the last six years running the WWCC Culinary program, where under his leadership, the program became re-energized and elevated both the range of student experiences and in their knowledge of visual presentation. 

Now through December 16, check out the indoor farmer's market at Whitehouse Crawford. 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 16. 

Holiday Barrel, Dec. 1-3 is the next big weekend and the last wine event for 2017.
