Anelia's Kitchen & Stage is the culmination of a life long dream - to open a restaurant that supports and showcases the community - by using food from Skagit Valley and the surrounding region, offering craft beer and wines from the Pacific Northwest and creating a space that encourages music and the arts.
Many know 513 South First Street as "The Bank" and the bench outside as well as remnants from the vault will always remind us of what we transformed into Anelia's Kitchen & Stage. We feel thankful to be part of the La Conner community as residents and business owners and we hope you will like the transformation too!
So, who is Anelia? She is Jennifer's grandma, who was also known as "Alice". She was an amazing women with a big heart and love for cooking. Jennifer watched gram (and her mother) make the polish dishes on the menu today since she was a little girl and we are proud to name the restaurant after her polish birth name. After all, naming a restaurant can be as hard as naming a child! There are several people in our lives who we memorialize, like gram, who continue to fuel our passion for the business and inspire us through memories. Now, we are excited to share the space we've created to honor them, and welcome you!
Jennifer & Matt
