Chelsea Farms’ story began in Olympia in 1987, when then-owners Linda and John Lentz started their journey of sustainable shellfish farming. “Chelsea,” which means “Port of Ships,” was chosen as the name of the company, and was also the name of John’s tugboat used for geoduck diving.

The Lentz’s began with a commitment to practice organic, sustainable farming with an environmental obligation to the South Sound and Pacific Northwest as a whole. The continual progress seen through the years from Chelsea Farms could not be more evident in the community. It’s a mission current owners Shina Wysocki and Kyle Lentz, a second generation President of Pacific Coast Shellfish Grower’s Association, remain committed to fulfilling. 

In 2016, siblings Shina and Kyle opened Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar, continuing their parents’ mission of paying homage to the indigenous shellfish while creating a genuine rapport in the community. Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar is located at 222 Capitol Way N. Olympia, in the open marketplace of 222 Market. Owning a restaurant had always been a dream for Shina, who has a culinary background. Since opening, she has curated each piece of the bar to be a piece of history and opportunity, from the decor to her staff. 

Chelsea farms recently renovated and expanded their existing space in September 2019. Visit their beautiful and even bigger space as part of Sip, Savor & Stroll on March 28! Get tickets here: https://events.ticketprinting.com/event/Sip-Savor-Stroll-2019-37536?clear

Basilico Ristorante brings fine European wines and an authentic Northern Italian Menu to downtown Olympia. Basilico stands out for its high level of freshness, quality and true authenticity. “Here, everything is truly made from scratch, and we do not compromise on that." Basilico also represents a celebration of life, where everyone is invited to enjoy those moments of joy combined with fine Italian food and wine in a cozy, friendly and elegant atmosphere.

Their cuisine features a large selection of fresh hand made and hand-cut pastas, all produced according to the old Italian tradition and with the use of specially-milled flour imported from Italy as well as organic and local flours. Pappardelle al Cinghiale has become one of their most popular dishes, a fresh wide cut egg pasta served tossed with wild boar long soaked in red wine and spices and then infused with a fresh mix of herbs in a delicate tomato sauce in winter, and with olives and braised red wine sauce in summer. 

Enjoy their friendly, cozy atmosphere and some delicious Italian food as party of Sip, Savor & Stroll on March 28!
