My Newly Discovered Hideaway

While the new restaurant, The Hideaway, in downtown Cashmere isn't hidden from view, my first impression upon stepping inside was one of welcoming restfulness-a place to have dinner in a gracious atmosphere. As we entered, we were welcomed immediately and led to a cozy side section which did, indeed, feel like a hideaway, although it opened to the larger room and we could watch the other diners as the wait staff - and often, chef/owner Kimberly Barrera, as she chatted with diners.

The chairs at our table were wonderfully comfortable, and we relaxed as our waiter brought us water and a menu. Kimberly came out of the kitchen and told us of her fresh specials for that day. We perused the interesting menu offerings, and ordered a salad roll with duck confit and slices of duck breast with a glass of Ryan Patrick's Ryan's Riesling, as we knew our appetizer would be a little spicy. For the entree? For us, the unanimous choice was the lamb, as we love lamb and had heard she had a delicious way of preparing these rib chops. Also, we saw Crayelle Cellar's Bishop's Block Southern Rhone Blend on the menu: a perfect pairing. 

While waiting for our food we spoke with the neighboring table, where two diners were sipping Dutch John's Chardonnay as the other couple enjoyed Ryan Patrick's Rock Island Red and Ryan's Riesling.

Looking slightly behind us at a cozy corner table, we noticed a couple who had just finished and were talking quietly. The location seemed perfect for an intimate dinner for two. Looking over at us, they smiled, so we approached them and asked if we could take a picture. They agreed, and expressed their pleasure at the food and at their "hideaway" location.

We were not dismayed that we had a wait for our food, as each dish is prepared fresh and made as ordered: no packaged or frozen and reheated dishes here. We liked seeing some of our best local wines on the list, with more to come.  I hope they still have the wild boar chops or venison osso buco on our next visit, although I was tempted by the fresh halibut and Dungeness crab.

Choices, choices!
