Welp, the weather Seattle is famous for has certainly taken hold—monsoon-like rain, wind, a blanket of gray sky. Blah! But, lucky us, Seattle’s also famous for its fantastic fish supply. So tonight, take advantage of that.
Bellevue’s Toscano has crispy seared wild king salmon with a winter farm vegetable bean salad and a garnish of hickory smoked foam for $26. Also on the menu is butternut squash ravioli with orange buerre blanc, crumbled gorgonzola, caramelized onions, and fresh spinach for $20. Make sure to try their mold spice cider martini for just $6, and if you aren’t too full, don’t miss out on their stunning fried apple blossom with applejack brandy cream and maple syrup, $7.
At St. Clouds in Madrona, start your meal with beef and black bean tamales, pico de gallo, pasilla chile, and spinach mole, $9.25. Then move on to either grilled pork loin rubbed in achiote and served with fresh corn vinaigrette, Spanish rice, and sautéed kale, $21, or wild grilled Coho salmon, served with a smoky tomato vinaigrette, faro risotto in shrimp stock, sautéed broccoli rabe, and organic greens, $25.
