Spring has sprung in Kirkland Washington, and that means that Easter is right around the corner.  The Woodmark Hotel is the perfect place to spend Easter weekend, with fun for the entire family.  On Saturday April 7th, the Woodmark and N2 publishing are hosting the second annual Easter Egg Scramble on the Olympic Terrace lawn.  250 kids will enjoy hunting for candy filled eggs, and even get to meet the Easter Bunny himself.   Easter Sunday kicks off “brunch season” with both the Beach Café and bin on the lake serving up holiday specials.  The Beach Café’s Chef Matthew Steffen has created a brunch menu that’s sure to please…including a seafood station, make your own omelets, whole roasted pork loin, Salmon, and lamb chops.   Chef Dylan Giordan of bin on the lake is serving up scrumptious plates for serious spring noshing, with a 3 course menu that’s not to be missed.  Entrees include a Dungeness Crab Omelet, Amaretto Brioche French Toast, Ninety Farms Lamb Sausage, and even Bacon Beignets!

Happy Easter from the Woodmark Hotel!

Woodmark Hotel Culinary Team on the Move in Seattle

Our culinary team at the Woodmark Hotel has been on the move, participating in two major chef-centric events this month. 

The Woodmark’s Executive Chef Brian Cooper treated hundreds of hungry foodies to his Scallops wrapped in Spanish chorizo with a saffron corn jus at last week’s Kirkland Uncorked.   This festival is a regional showcase of art, food and wine on the picturesque shores of Lake Washington in Kirkland, Washington taking place every July. Benefiting the Hope Heart Institute, Kirkland Uncorked features artist showrooms, a boat show, and dog modeling contest in the Promenade and a Tasting Garden with grilling demonstrations, wine tasting and live music.

Meanwhile, bin on the lake’s Chef de Cuisine R. Paul Hyman was cooking up lamb at Burning Beast.  Known in the northwest as “the world’s best feast in a field” this unique event features more than a dozen of Seattle’s finest chefs preparing sustainably raised meats and fish using humankind’s most basic tool – fire.  

Those that want a more conventional Seattle dining experience can find Chef Hyman’s fish focused menu at bin on the lake, and Chef Cooper’s fresh familiar favorites at the Beach Café, next to the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, on the shores of Lake Washington.

The Woodmark Hotel wins best Wedding Venue in Seattle!photo

Guess who was just awarded the best wedding venue on the east side by 425 Magazine?  You guessed it...the Woodmark is THE place to tie the knot!

Spectacular setting, amazing service, and attention to every detail is what we are all about.   It’s all in the unexpected qualities that can only come from creating a personal relationship with a couple.  Everyone is unique to us and each wedding should be unique as well.  Each couple has a special story and we want to learn their story and find a way to share it through their wedding.  Whether that is the groom, who is an avid cyclist, riding his bicycle down the path; the bride’s car fanatic father in his classic car to “walk” the bride down the aisle…we are here to customize these moments that make the guest share in the special moment with the bride and groom.  Our standard is to exceed every expectation.

Are we bragging?  Maybe a little…visit our website to see why The Woodmark is number one for weddings in the Pacific NorthWest!
