NYP Restaurant & Bar's culinary masterminds concoct cuisine ranging from hand-tossed pizzas slathered with homemade sauce to gourmet Angus burgers grilled to customer specifications. Working in tandem with bartenders, the chefs complement each tomato-topped pie or pasta dish with craft cocktails and 20 different signature martinis such as the Tsunami––a surge of coconut rum, vodka, peach schnapps, blue curacao, pineapple juice, and mist. They also serve local craft beers. For some mealtime entertainment, TVs located in the bar and in the restaurant show local sports teams such as the Seahawks and Sounders.

From the beginning, Boundary Bay Brewery knew they wanted to make the kinds of beers that they liked to drink: big, bold Northwest brews. They began producing award-winning handcrafted beers and quickly became a place where the locals love to go. They believe strongly in local economy and in keeping their community vibrant and healthy. To that end, Boundary Bay Brewery partner with at least 15 local suppliers/farmers to create a menu of fun, fresh Northwest pub food and help support over 100 local non-profits annually.
Located in a restored historic warehouse, the brewery opened in 1995 with the goal of brewing bold, flavorful beers. It quickly became popular with locals, who now make use of the space year-round. During the summer, crowds come out to dine on the deck or drink light, refreshing brews in the beer garden. Seven taps are devoted to house brews that are always on tap, while the others are for seasonal brews, brewing experiments like single hop ales and small batch beers that are only brewed rarely. Two cask beers are always available as well. When the weather grows cold, beers like Cabin Fever, a strong-brewed winter ale, rise in popularity and no table seems to lack plates of locally caught sockeye salmon or nachos with housemade salsa and a plethora of additional ingredients from the family-friendly bistro. Although the craft brewery's offerings are representative of the Northwest, the brews have amassed more than 100 impressive awards from festivals and competitions across the country.
