BARKING FROG KITCHEN RENOVATION SET TO SUPPORT 17 YEARS OF EXPANSIVE GROWTH

Barking Frog house kitchen to get an extensive remodel to keep pace with guest demand

 

Woodinville, Wash (December 6, 2017) – After more than seventeen years, the Barking Frog restaurant at Willows Lodge is set to undergo an extensive kitchen remodel in January 2018 to better serve the growing needs of culinary and hotel guests. The restaurant will close on January 2, 2018, and plans to reopen on February 6th, 2018. During the Barking Frog closure, Willow Lodge will be serving a limited menu in Fireside Lounge for breakfast/brunch, lunch, and dinner and the Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen food truck will be parked onsite, serving hotel guests and visitors a fun, mixed menu on weekends.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth in our food and beverage demands over the last 17 years at Barking Frog and Willows Lodge,” said Denny Fitzpatrick, General Manager, Willows Lodge. “It is our goal to continue to offer an excellent guest experience and we’re excited to reveal a more modern and efficient kitchen to meet the rapidly growing culinary needs of our valued guests in 2018.”

Willows Lodge will continue to offer Happier Hour daily from 4-6pm in Fireside Lounge. In addition, hotel guests will still have access to a limited room service menu for in-room dining. On Saturday and Sunday, the Barking Frog Mobile Kitchen (BFMK) food truck will be parked out front of the hotel serving brunch items such as warm Beignets, Chorizo Burritos, and Grand Mariner Prawns from 9am-2pm. 

Executive Chef Bobby Moore will be overseeing the Barking Frog renovation. Both Chef Bobby and Chef de Cuisine, Chris Smith, will continue to manage operations at Fireside and BFMK during the renovation, as well share behind the scenes of the remodel in January on social media.  [click to continue…]

Convergence Zone: Closing Woodinville Tasting Room

by Shona Milne on September 22, 2017

Sad to see Convergence Zone close their Woodinville location but you can visit them in North Bend. Their last day open in Woodinville will be Saturday, September 30th.

 

Woodinville Tasting Room Closing

Our last day in Woodinville will be September 30.  After 7-1/2 years being part of the Woodinville wine community, we have decided to focus resources on our winery, which moved to North Bend last year.  We will be open in both locations on September 23 and 30 from Noon-5:00 pm for tasting, picking up wine club orders, enjoying a glass of wine or purchasing a case of your favorites.  Beginning October 7, please visit us at 10808 428th Ave. SE, North Bend 98045.

We want to thank our Woodinville customers and community for 7-1/2 years of support.  Although North Bend is now our home, we will always have fond memories of the Warehouse District, where we started our journey.  We invite you to make the drive to North Bend (it’s really not that far) to visit our winery and experience the natural beauty of the valley.

Thank you for your support,

Scott and Monica Greenberg (Winemaker and Owners)
