NOURISH SEQUIM IS LOCATED on the site of the old Bell Farm, one of the earliest pioneer homesteads. John Bell, came from England working for the Hudson Bay Company farm. As the story goes John didn’t like a life of servitude, so he took a boat and rowed across the Strait to the peninsula. By 1856 he had filed for a 160-acre homestead land claim and married a Scottish gal, Sara Anne Greenlaw Vert. The Bells were known to be hospitable and the word got out, “for a real good meal, bed and hearty welcome stop at John Bell’s.”
We thought this a great history to build a new restaurant upon…maybe we felt some kinship with former the owner as we also hailed from the UK; although most recently from Portland OR. We purchased the old Bell farmhouse and are bringing it back to being a homestead.
In 2013 we opened Nourish Sequim as a restaurant to showcase and support the artisan products of the local farmers, ranchers, fishermen, wineries, cideries and distillers. We offer fresh, natural food in a casual and creative way; a place where anyone can come to eat, regardless of their dietary needs or choices. Since a lot of people feel better without wheat products in their diet, we dedicated the kitchen gluten-free. We produce all our own breads and pastries.
In addition to our delicious seasonal menus, we have an expansive wine list featuring Washington and Oregon wines. Enjoy a pre-dinner craft cocktail, local beer, or glass of wine in our elegant lounge that offers happy hour specials as well as a unique experience to top off your visit.
The Nourish Bar Menu is a living document, so what you see here may differ slightly from what we’re serving in the lounge and dining room.
