It was time to celebrate. I think wedding anniversaries and birthdays are special occasions worthy of excess. They are the celebration of an enduring existence. And since my marriage has been enduring very well for quite a long time we toasted it with Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne at Prospect Street Cafe.

No reservations. Open Wednesday to Sunday 5pm to close. Menu ever changing in step with the season and local produce, and Chef/Owner Spencer Santenello’s VIVID imagination!

Our server was very nice. We worked together to pop the champagne bottle’s cork. It tasted soft bubbled sweet tart.

Here’s to “How many?!” Here’s to “That many more!

As we mulled over which special to have, I noticed an elderly couple being seated nearby. They were dressed for occasion with a little bling and a lot of sparkle in the eye. Just sets the mind to wondering of the future…We both chose a fresh seafood special and I had a house salad. Tom selected ahi tuna prepared 3 different ways: tartare with crisp julienned greens, seared with cumin seeds and papaya, and seared with sesame seeds topped with roe on a bed of rice. All 3 set in delicious sauces. All 3 distinct and flavorful. I ate whole mustard crusted salmon with a potato latke. My house salad had cherry tomatoes, cucumber and sesame-miso vinaigrette. Excellent.

Prospect Street Cafe is the best gourmet restaurant we have experienced in Bellingham. Thank you, Chef Santenello!
