Made the trip out to Bainbridge Island to try out Hitchcock after reading about it on Gastrolust and the press around opening of Hitchcock Deli in Seattle. Food was excellent but was still tempted to stop at Mora for some ice cream for the ferry ride home. Smoked salmon and orecchiette where my favorites. Too bad not earlier in the year when the sunset would have produced nicer pictures than the nighttime shots in late Aug.
