I was invited to attend a Taste & Tweet at Bin on the Lake last week. Bin on the Lake is located at the Woodmark Hotel on the Kirkland waterfront. They are now open for lunch daily for 11am-2pm and they picked a beautiful day to host some bloggers and tweeters to do some tasting. We began with Beef Brisket Sliders with slaw with a Cucumber Breeze mocktail. Both were very delicious. Next up were Scallops PLT which is Prosciutto, Lettuce and Tomato paired with a Sparking Grapefruit mocktail with rosemary and lime. The scallops were wonderful and juicy. We also had Pressed Pork paired with Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica and Saffron Summer Succotash paired with Rombauer Vineyards Chardonnay. Our final course was Ahi Tuna with Kimchi and Ginger Parsnip Puree. It was very nice and it was paired with a flight of Oregon Pinot Noir. I did have a few doubts about Pinot Noir with the Ahi but it worked great.
Bin on the Lake will celebrate its one year anniversary in September. They have 83 wines by the glass available and they have 1/2 price wine flight for ladies on Mondays. They also have a Yappy Hour hosted by their mascot Woody on Wednesday from 5-7pm, weather permitting.
