Deep red walls, funky art, fantastic food and a wine bar balcony make this downtown restaurant a local favorite. Chef/owner Tom Douglas, who also owns Etta's Seafood and Palace Kitchen , spares nothing to make the most interesting, flavorful, beautifully presented dishes. For appetizers, try the Scallion potstickers and Penn Cove Manila clams. Entrees feature numerous seafood selections and wood-grilled meats. Do not skip dessert. Douglas is renowned in Seattle for his coconut cream pie with white chocolate.
Went here for a romantic dinner and the place did not dissapoint. The atmosphere is very nice, and the menu had so many good choices, I wasn't sure what to get. Settled on the crab cakes and they were great-- the waiter also recommended a delicious glass of wine to compliment the dish. But the best was truly saved for best-- on the dessert menu was made to order doughnuts, served with a strawberry jam and vanilla spread that made them even more heavenly. The price isn't cheap ($20-$30/entree) but completely worth it. If you are staying at the Westin, its only a 2 block walk-- don't miss it, we would go again in an instant!
