New restaurant coming to Carillon Point

Carillon Point employees and visitors will have a new dining option starting Monday.

Carillon Kitchen will offer a full menu of items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, available to eat in the restaurant, take to go or order for delivery. Delivery within a five-mile radius will be available via a Carillon Kitchen app, powered by ChowNow, which partners with Uber to deliver the food.

The restaurant’s menu puts an emphasis on local, fresh ingredients. Executive Chef Frank Rog and Chef Michael Bailey plan to use local, organic ingredients for all menu items, all sourced within 200 miles of the restaurant.

“The food’s not going to taste like it’s from the supermarket — it’s all made fresh, the day of,” Rog, who has worked in restaurants in Chicago, Aspen, Miami and Lake Tahoe, said.

Items on the menu include wraps, pizzas, soups and salads. Carillon Kitchen manager Emily Sanders said her favorite food item is the pear and arugula pizza.

“Not everyone wants a big, meaty pizza — it’s a great, light option,” she said.

Woodmark Hotel marketing manager Christina Lehman added that she’s enjoyed the kale caesar salad, mainly because it uses a light emulsion instead of a heavier dressing.

Rog said they plan to buy some of their ingredients from the local farmers markets and will update their menu every three months or so to incorporate seasonal offerings. He said he sees the restaurant as an opportunity to promote local ingredients and healthy eating, a way of giving back to the community.

The concept behind the food menu has also transferred to the beer and wine offerings at Carillon Kitchen. “Everything is from Washington,” Sanders said, specifically mentioning wines from Woodinville.

In addition to beer, wine and coffee, the beverage options include kombucha and offerings from the juice bar.

The 2,000-square-foot restaurant, located across from the Woodmark Hotel, was designed by Seattle interior design firm Cippolone Creative. The space includes reclaimed walnut tabletops and abstract watercolor paintings by British Columbia artist Natasha Marie. There is seating for 48 inside, and Lehman said outdoor seating will also be available starting next month.

The restaurant will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. In addition to dine-in, to-go and delivery orders, the restaurant will also cater, and the space will be available to rent for events. For more information, including the full menu, visit carillonkitchen.com.
