Kirkland’s Beach Café Reopens in Time for Summer

An Eastside eatery known for its waterfront seating is back.

The Beach Café, situated along the sparkling waters at Carillon Point at the Woodmark, has reopened for dinner five nights a week (Wednesday through Saturday, 5-9 p.m.). It’s also open for brunch on Sundays (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), with a fresh, evolving menu to showcase the skills of Chef Brian Doherty.

Introduced over a year ago following stints at The Four Seasons and the Fairmont, Doherty brings his vision of flavorful elegance to the café’s menu. He has a culinary understanding of what locals have come to appreciate as well as crave in tandem with a measured return to restaurants.

Patio and dine-in seating are available and, given the need for limited and distanced seating, reservations are required and can be made on OpenTable.

The current menu is springtime-fresh, featuring seafood dishes like seared wild scallops with earthy morels and a bright pea puree, as well as hints of the incoming summer with sweet corn elote fritters with savory cotija and a lime-cilantro crema. The menu will expand and change with the season, and for now, Chef Doherty is striking a thoughtful balance of select entrées and welcoming comforts. One highlight is the Akaushi Bacon Burger, distinctive for its use of melty Beecher’s cheese.
