Hope you are all enjoying this holiday season! Reminder that we will be open Christmas Eve for lunch only, closing at 3:00, and closed Christmas. It’s a whirlwind countdown to the end of the year, but don’t miss out on making reservations for New Year’s Eve at one of our places! I hate the disappointed phone calls of people who wait too long. Here’s the details! Join us for a very special evening at Saltwater Fish House and Oyster Bar – featuring oysters, bubbles, live music and fun. We will have two seatings for this 5 course meal – 5:30-8:00 or 8:30-11:00. Price is $75 per person, and includes a welcome reception with a glass of bubbles and nibbles and moves onto 5 courses (menu below, subject to change slightly), with optional sparkling wine pairings (and of course full bar offerings). Danny Ward, jazz saxophonist will be entertaining us. Reservation only, includes the bar top. Reply to this email with NYE reservation as the subject line and include your desired party size, time preference and whether you prefer a table or the bar.

Hello everybody! We've officially made it through the 12th summer of Prima and the 1st summer of Saltwater and we are still alive to tell the tale! Thank you for all the amazing support and encouragement we've received from all of you...we are beyond appreciative! The opening of Saltwater was remarkably smooth thanks to our amazing crew. We've been able to hammer out minor issues as they've arisen, for example we realized right away it was too noisy in there so have now installed acoustic panels which have really helped. We will be rolling out our take out and happy hour programs at Saltwater in the next two weeks. Watch our facebook pages for details. Announcing our next wine dinner at Prima...WINES FROM MOUNTAINOUS REGIONS. Mountain wines are some of the most intriguing wines in the world. They sing the song of the hill they grow on, sharing with you the unique mineral content of the mountain soil, the elevation, the pitch of the slope. We’ve picked out a swath of these amazing wines from around the world. South American wines from the Andes, volcanic wines from Italy, wines grown in the French Alps, and wines from our own back yard here in Washington state. Their alluring complexities make them extremely fun to pair with food, and unlike most of the wine dinners we’ve done at Prima in the past, the restriction of regionality has been lifted. November 6th, 7 wine paired courses, $125 per person. Reply to this email if you are interested! Seatings will be every half hour between 5:30-7:30. At the time of this email this event is over half way full so contact us soon! New menu items at Prima - my favorite menu change has happened! Back on the menu we have cassoulet, raclette, french onion soup, and the salade lyonnaise. Our new pasta is a wagyu short rib ragout with house made noodles, locally grown oyster mushrooms and pecorino romano. Our plats du jour are now: Coq au vin on Sunday, bouillabaisse on Monday, choucroute garni on Tuesday, moulard duck breast a l'orange on Wednsday and a Berkshire porkchop with munster and a gratin of yukon gold potatoes on Thursday.
