After Hours Dessert Desert in Bellingham

I love to eat late evening snacks. I work hard to limit it, but I want to be in charge of limiting it, not Bellingham’s early closing of eateries. Why is it sooo hard to find a place to eat fresh pie at 9:30pm?

My partner and I went driving after dinner at Nimbus to find dessert. I know: If Nimbus was so delish, why didn’t I eat dessert there? Well, so I made a mistake and didn’t want to take the elevator back up to the 14th floor again. We could have gone to the Anthony’s. Been there, done that. Arlis closed. Grace Cafe closed.

Can someone help me out here? Suggestions?

Nimbus Restaurant

Filed under: Bellingham local,Bellingham Restaurants,local,restaurants — Tags: , — Bellingham Diner @ 9:23 pm

THE place to eat in Bellingham. The FIRST restaurant recommendation out of most people’s mouth.

Well, my Mother is in town and I get free sitter service.

What a surprise when my partner made reservations for Nimbus! A restaurant in the clouds! What a view – pick one: sunset or mountain? Sunset. Choose from an original and expansive menu? Heaven.

House made charcuterie was a delectable shared plate of meats, nuts and pickled vegetables (happens to be just like an evening snack served by my partner). My main course was Pig in a Blanket. Now, just in case you were thinking low, let me elaborate. It was a sous-vide (French for ‘under vacuum’) Carlton Farms pork loin with a root beer blanket, fennel compote, roasted beets and vanilla mashed potatoes. Every bite of it was really delicious. My partner had Steak and Crab Mojito. It was better than mine, but his food always is. It was grilled St. Helen’s ribeye, dungeness crab-lime salad, rum braised cauliflower, mint pesto and arugula. He considered it the Best Steak in Bellingham.

The service was attentive and patient (I ask a lot of questions) and the crowd was a pretty good watch.

Next time I’m going to invite 3 people I want to talk with and sit at the table with the sunset view: my yogi, needle lady and Joe. My partner can come, too.
