[SEA] New & Notable Restaurants?
I'm returning to Seattle soon for a visit after an absense of about a year or so. Since I used to live in Seattle, I'm already familiar with many of the foodie-friendly restaurants around town, and this time around I'd like to try something new.
Have there been any notable new resturants that have opened recently?
Any places with innovative menus/techniques?
Thanks for any recs! =)
If you haven't been to Lark, I'd definitely recommend it. It's all small plates and there is always something new. http://larkseattle.com/
Seattle Metropolitan named Lark “Best Chef Inspired Restaurant” and “Trendsetters” (11/2006)
Or if you can't schedule it in. Stop by Licorous next door for a drink, also owned by Sundstrom and Ronan. http://licorous.com/
I'd try either Sitka and Spruce or Tilth. Both offer very similar menus featuring a fresh outlook on ingrediants (mushroom creme brulee, etc.) and a focus on offering smaller serving sizes so you can try more of the menu. I've also heard good things about Tavolata, a new Italian restaurant opened by the head chef of Union, Ethan Stowell. Qube is also fairly new and, although it could use some time to work out some rough patches, has some great food and a interesting take on the tasting menu concept, serving 9 dishes featuring 3 ingrediants cooked 3 different ways.
