Kickstart the new year with a getaway to Walla Walla in February during Walla Walla Restaurant Month. Walla Walla’s diverse and eclectic culinary scene shines year round, but every February our hospitality partners go big with special prix fixe menu offerings, take home meal kits, curated wine pairings and flights, and lodging deals.
Many of the area’s finest lodging establishments also happen to feature onsite dining, like Eritage Resort and the Marcus Whitman Hotel and Conference Center. Others, like the FINCH, are within walking distance to some of the most popular restaurants in Walla Walla, making a meal of just about any sort just a literal hop, skip, and a jump away.
From food trucks to fine dining, a world of flavor is waiting for you during Walla Walla Restaurant Month. Prix fixe three-course menus range from $19-39 and feature everything from tacos and beer to boeuf bourguignon and crepe au citron. The local culinary institute even puts together take-home meal kits for locals and visitors to build in the comfort of their home (or home-away-from-home), adding a fun cooking experience to round out your exploration of Walla Walla’s food scene.
What’s a great meal without the perfect wine to pair?
Walla Walla was rated America’s Best Wine Region in back to back years for a reason, and Walla Walla Restaurant Month is an ideal time to visit and expand your palate. Walla Walla’s award-winning wineries put together special wine flights and pairing experiences throughout the month, and some even offer onsite dining options.
Prefer beer or spirits?
Even if wine isn’t your go-to beverage, Walla Walla Restaurant Month has something to quench your thirst. Our emerging brewery scene gives you a hoppier way to taste through Walla Walla. Favorites like Burwood Brewery often have food trucks parked on site so you’ll never drink on an empty stomach.
While you could certainly eat your way through Walla Walla without taking a break, we don’t necessarily recommend it. Explore downtown Walla Walla’s art galleries and shopping, or work up your appetite on the slopes at nearby Ski Bluewood before heading back to town to clean up and make your reservation.
There are many reasons to vacation in Walla Walla during the month of February. Valentine’s Day serves as your excuse for a romantic getaway. The President’s Day long weekend provides an extra travel day to your quick trip. Perhaps you’ve just successfully completed Dry January and are looking for a fun way to get back on the bandwagon! Whatever you’re craving, Walla Walla Restaurant Month is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in all that our small town has to offer. Start planning your visit today; Walla Walla will leave you with more than a good meal to talk about later.
