It’s a throwback in all the best ways, situated on an unfashionable corner of North Ballard, but decorated with a genteelly industrial aesthetic uniting cylindrical pendants and crisp linenless tables. And, acoustical panels! Shaun McCrain’s food likewise harks to an earlier era: short menus, accessible preparations, underpriced dishes, and OCD-level precision—in everything from the crust on the sear to the intensity of the passion fruit sorbet. McCrain deploys modernist technique in breath-catchingly glorious triumphs like ahi crudo over compressed watermelon ringed with peppery-sweet gastrique—but make no mistake, the satisfactions in this house are timeless not new, from the classic French overtones to the soul-healing warmth of the welcome.
