It’s official — On October 25th Tanglewood Supreme served their first guest heirloom lettuce with turnips, sunflower brittle, dressed with tamarind vinaigrette followed by a rod and reel, hand caught, wild Alaskan King Salmon with heirloom beans, pancetta, brussels, and pumpkin. Owner Kent Chappelle says “Our first dollar is proudly framed in the office, we can’t help it…we’re traditional at heart.” He goes on to say “Tanglewood Supreme couldn’t be more pleased with the foodie reviews that have been posted and offered — our salmon continues to top the charts along with our Alaskan Weathervane scallops, house pumpkin ravioli, sweet potato arancini, tea leaf chicken breast and market oysters.”
We watched as they transformed the old Wheeler Street into Magnolia’s newest seafood bistro- a cozy space with high-back booths, a reclaimed farm table and banquette for larger parties as well as a blond butcher block eating bar that wraps into the kitchen. Chappelle says this allows for lively conversation with their talented Chef, Jeffrey Kessenich and Sous Chef, Tyler Johnston. With opening night behind them, Chappelle says things are going well:
Two special Tanglewood Supreme supporters have visited us almost every day during construction and continue their support even after their first dining experience sending us the kindest card, elated with our menu offerings, the taste of their meals and expressing that, “we are looking forward to our next visit and you are certainly a lovely addition to our neighborhood.” The support of our community continues to inspire us to bring you the best “fisherman to table” experience — with an uncompromising focus on excellence sourced from the very best purveyors that the Pacific Northwest has to offer and it is this spirit that infuses every aspect of the restaurant, from its design and ambiance, to service and of course its cuisine.
Although brand-new, Tanglewood Supreme got in on one of Magnolia’s oldest traditions- The Magnolia Chamber’s annual “Trick-or-Treat” festival. In addition to candy, they offered a “Tanglewood Treat” for adults- a drawing with the prize of a free entrée of the winners’ choice.. Congratulations, Kimball Mullins!
They are open Tuesday through Saturday for lunch from 11am-3pm, happy hour from 5pm-6pm and dinner from 6pm-close.
