Talented Seattle Chef Lisa Nakamura will take the helm of award-winning Christina’s restaurant on Orcas Island formerly owned for over 2 decades by NW Icon, Chef Christina Orchid. The new restaurant is now named Allium on Orcas.
In the 80’s Christina’s quickly became a destination restaurant on Orcas Island, a two hour ferry ride north of Seattle. It was known as the go-to restaurant for anyone visiting Orcas Island.
New owner, Chef Nakamura describes Allium’s menu as drawing upon classic French technique with exotic flavor profiles, reflecting her experience gained overseas. The menu will change frequently, to keep in stride with the growing season while concentrating on the bounty of simple, fresh Pacific Northwest flavors.
The expected grand opening is slated for Memorial Day weekend.
