In the days of the Klondike Gold Rush, hopeful prospectors departing from Seattle had a few options for getting to the remote reaches of Alaska in hopes of striking it rich. In a sea of adventurous choices, perhaps the most coveted was the all water route, heralded for its ease and efficiency. Although it ended in heartbreak for most stampeders — just as every other path did — the all water route left in its wake a legacy: increased trade in the salmon and halibut industries.
Today, we celebrate the history of those daring crowds that poured into Seattle with big dreams by offering diverse flavor profiles from different bays. This is the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer, and while a few things have changed since the 1890s, the irresistible call of the ocean and quality of our region’s seafood never will.
