Octopus caught off the coast? Yes, please! That local delicacy was marinated and served chilled with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette as a recent starter, shocking in its ultra-tenderness. This was just one of the impressive dishes highlighting the amazing ingredients from the Northwest. The beautifully prepared wild Chinook salmon with pea tendrils and fava beans was another seasonal treat. The real treat was the gracious service in this busy dining room, especially our seasoned waiter, who suggested excellent Oregon wine matches for the food. The Adelsheim Pinot gris was brilliant with the first course, and the deeply flavored, Burgundian-style Domaine Serene was incredible alongside the salmon. The menu might give potential diners that this venue is formal, but the crowd on a Monday night was a mix of casually attired guys and gals, businessmen and even a few stroller-pushing families. Everyone seemed united in their enjoyment of the plates set before them.
Great neighborhood anchor for movie, casual dining, and pub faring needs. Thanks Brian n Mike McMenamin.
As a seattlite the name is misleading, then add the Rexall Drug sign and I'm stumped. But thankfully, Stumptown is lovingly brewed and poured here! Now add a sunny spring day, killer blueberry muffin and a table outside and I'm in heaven! Best kind of high really.
Perhaps the best crust on Apizza ever. I highly recommend trying their house specials as well as their Margarita Amore pizza.
