    Thanks for taking us places not many of us will ever visit Jeff! Your stories are always wonderful.

    I am from Seattle and we always get great Alaskan seafood but that salmon looks even better than we get down here.

    Imagine being out in the middle of nowhere Alaska, stumbling into this place, and seeing what they served you. I'd be like "WTF? We're out in the middle of nowhere. Where did THIS come from?"

    Well done piece! A chef I could work with/for...and I could still embrace my inner hermit 8 months a year! 💜

    When the stars align miracles happen. Not too many years ago, when The Potato operated out of a 'food van' things would have looked a bit different, but just as tasty. Today The Potato is the mortar that helps hold McCarthy together.
  • This place is now on my bucket list. I'm from Idaho so "The Potato" is now a priority place for me to visit. ♡
