For 23 years, Executive Chief Clark Covey and his restaurant, Homestead has been serving Walla Walla some of the best meals from northwest fresh ingredients. It is one of my favorite places to dine in Walla Walla. Not only is the food always good, but the service as well. It is one of those places where you can dine well and drink excellent wines, but be relaxed doing it. The atmosphere is not fancy or intimidating, but most of all it is very affordable.
The dinner menu is very well-rounded with goodies like salads, pasta, seafood, chicken and Angus beef. My favorite is the Dungeness crabcakes. Grilled and topped with a fresh lime beurre blanc. The Chicken Sonoma is another dish that I enjoy. A chicken breast stuffed with cheese, sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil, mushrooms, browned, baked and topped with sauce supreme. The prime rib is a speciality and always good.
If you want a martini, even though they do not have a bar, they serve liquor and spirits besides their wine list which features Walla Walla wines.
The Homestead offers breakfast on the weekends and lunch through the week. They also do some amazing catering. I think it is some of the best catering in town. Chef Covey will even do some special catering dishes upon request featuring local wines such as lamb chops with risoto and cherries in a Merlot redux or beef tenderloin in a black pepper crust with a Cabernet redux (another one of my favorites). So check it out or check it out again. It's good stuff!
