Coho Restaurant, in Friday Harbor Washington, is part of the San Juan Island Inn Collection. This San Juan Island fine dining restaurant serves Island grown Pacific cuisine with a Mediterranean flair. Chef Ryan creates exciting menus developed around the seasonality of fresh ingredients from the surrounding Islands. Each night, this “Best of the San Juans” restaurant menu showcases simple and artful fare that allows the flavors of the individual ingredients to resonate on the palate.
Chef Ryan cultivates relationships with small farms and food purveyors who are raising, growing, foraging and catching the many local ingredients on Coho Restaurant’s menu. Whether it’s an heirloom carrot, beautiful head of tender red lettuce, or a sweet onion, these ingredients, usually the sides, transforms dishes, making them the stars.
