Can a restaurant achieve enlightenment? Seattle’s newest vegetarian haunt, perched like a lotus in Wallingford, comes close. Chef and co-owner Colin Patterson wants dining to be intentional and communal: hence, one or two four-course prix-fixe seatings comprise the night, and before dinner he sounds a gentle gong for a collective moment of gratitude. If it all sounds a little woo-woo—oh yes, he also owns a yoga studio—just hang on until the food arrives. Patterson, former head chef of the famous Blossoming Lotus on Kauai, is truly an herbivorous genius. He tops a salad of frizzled greens with grilled peach, dill dressing, and feisty julienned strips of cayenne; builds an ethereal lasagna of—get this—golden beets, creamed spinach, heirloom tomatoes, and figs. Food, in short, to satisfy the most carnivorous skeptic and—against this uniquely wholesome backdrop—feed the soul.
