Artist Michellino, who refers to herself by first name only, has found a new outlet for expressing her creativity in food. Michellino, along with two partners, has opened up the Eagle’s Roost restaurant in Birch Bay.

Their goal was to create an open, comfortable, art-based environment for their customers, and after only being open for four weeks, people are catching on.

 “We’ve had customers come back three times in four weeks,” Michellino said. They have been coming for the salmon on cloudy days and the fish and chips on hot days. “Both dishes are two major draws,” she said. The menu is based around the Pacific Northwest’s seafood and local foods.

It includes salmon and cheeses that she smokes herself, alongside fresh vegetables and herbs that often come from her garden.

“We’re feeling really brilliant about it,” Michellino said of Eagle’s Roost. “Word is out that it’s good food.”

While the restaurant is currently only open for breakfast and lunch, in six weeks beer and wine will be offered at dinner, which will be served on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The Eagle’s Roost is located at 8124 Birch Bay Drive and is currently open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday through Sunday.
