The Coterie Room
I don't think they have their own topic yet...
Had a nice dinner there tonight. Soft succulent foie torchon on buttery toast with gastique was appropriately rich. Seared scallops with cauliflower , fried capers, and pickled raisins were great but could have used a couple more capers and pickly bits. Almond financiers with quince for dessert were good but too sweet.
I liked the new ceiling, much better than Zoe's acoustical panels, but didn't care for the re-done bathrooms. I think the hexagonal tile would hurt my brain if I was in there after more than two cocktails.
I failed to inquire about the 6 pack for the kitchen, the bartender was so engrossed in chatting with his coworker I didn't want to interrupt.
Overall a good choice for something swankier and better than the surrounding happy hours.
Ate there on 12/27 and had a great time; had originally planne to dine at Canlis but our flight got delayed (by 10 hours) so we made a 10:30pm reservation and had the place to ourselves.
Had the poutine, the cracklins, mac n' cheese, fried chicken, and 3 desserts (plus they comped us a fourth dessert because "it sounds like you guys had a shitty day" when we told our server of the long afternoon in Houston airport when he asked why we were dining so late.
My longwinded review will eventually come up, with pictures, along with all my other Seattle reviews but it was good enough that we went back to Spur for our last meal in the city a week later.
