It's Urban Eats time and some excellent restos are participating!
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html...

We tried the UE menu at Union and it was excellent (except dessert, but that's ok by me).
Starters:
Beef Carpaccio (Excellent, could use a little salt or eat with focaccia like I did).
Chilled tomato soup
Mushroom ravioli in brown butter sauce (OMG. Very nice. Large portion - yay!

)

Mains:
Hangar steak (Nice. SO was very happy with it)
Halibut with corn, bacon and mushrooms (a tad overcooked, but still really good)
Braised pork cheeks

Desserts:
frozen creme fraiche with blueberry sauce (SO liked it - ate it before I got a real taste)
Chocolate terrine with raspberry ice cream and almond milk (very rich and malty. I didn't finish it)
I forget the last option

In all, Union's UE menu was excellent. I suspect it changes daily or close to it, but it's a great deal.

Has anyone tried any of the other UE restos yet? Where should we go next?

    Big vote for Taberna del Alabardero. Haven't been for their UE menu yet, but most of the food I had there for dinner a couple weeks ago was spot-on.

      Good to know- I have been there for happy hour- (which was so great!)- but not dinner...

      I would suggest Crush as your next stop! Thanks for the Union menu- I am heading there on Wednesday-

        Thanks for posting. Quick question: are any of these places doing the same deal for lunch? And if so, is there a list or do you have to contact them one by one?

          I didn't see any info about a lunch deal on the website, unfortunately. You might call and ask.
