My husband and I are going to spend 2 nights in Depoe Bay, Oregon. We want to have 3 really excellent meals while we're there. One excellent dinner, one excellent breakfast and/or brunch, and one excellent lunch.
For the dinner, we want to go someplace where we can see the ocean, maybe watch the sunset, drink wine and eat seafood and/or steak. I want to feel quiet and peaceful, attended to but not hurried. I want to gaze into my husband's eyes and share a fancy dessert with him. We like places with local flavor, cocktails and creative dishes, with a slight preference for modern and/or upscale decor, but that is absolutely secondary to the food. We don't want to dress up too much, but business casual would be fine. The cost of the meal is not a factor.
For the lunch, we want to go to a sea side shack that sells giant bowls of clam chowder and serves it with hunks of bread the size of your head. Or maybe we want grilled fish sandwiches on thick homemade bread. We don't mind being with the tourists, but we don't need that either. We want to swill this down with a few local IPAs. By the ocean would be a plus, but being in a cool neighborhood with things to wander around and look at would also be fun.
For the breakfast and/or brunch, we'd love to go have breakfast at a local place where the food is awesome and the Coast Guard comes in to grab a bite before a shift. We'd also love to have a fancy-shmancy brunch -- but with good food, not warmed over stuff on a hot plate. Diners, fancy hotels, whatever -- as long as the food is really good.
If it's relevant, we will be in Depoe Bay for a Sunday and Monday night, and Monday and Tuesday mornings. We'd prefer to stick around Depoe Bay, but don't mind driving.
Can you recommend a restaurant for any of these meals?
