St. Germain Replacement

Does anyone know the name of the restaurant going into the St. Germain location in Madison Park? Is it open yet?

  1. Did St. Germain close or just move?

    1. Yes, it is open - La Côte Crêperie, at 2811 E. Madison St., Seattle, 206-323-9800.
      As indicated in the name, it is still a french themed restaurant with a focus on crepes instead of tartines. Similar hours to St. Germain, just not open quite as late.
      Hours: 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays

        Is it a new owner as well? I thought the owner of Voila up the street also owned St Germain.

      2. It's called La Cote. I called the number for St. G a few weeks back based on the write-up in Seattle Magazine and gorgeous picture of an open-faced sandwitch with salmon on it. When I called they answered with a different name and when I asked if it was St. G the woman said the name had changed (but didn't mention it was a different restaurant...). I was delighted to get a reservation so didn't question it much. When I arrived I was a little suprised that there was only one table full, and then a little more suprised when I saw that they only served crepes. When I asked the server she said they had just openeda couple days prior. All that said, I had a delicious crepe with the salmon I was craving and a nice dessert crepe too. We ordered a few crepes for the table and all were delicious.

        By the way...does anyone know if St. G still exists, just somewhere else? It sounded fantastic!

            He actually left to go be a pianist with a european symphony. I'll miss that place, amazing spot for lunch!


        2. The story is in the "Ticket" insert to Friday's Seattle Times. It's now being run by Chef Laurent Gabrel from Voila!
