Shaun McCrain’s never cared much about Seattle’s prevailing restaurant trends. The veteran of Thomas Keller’s famed Per Se makes dinner feel unabashedly special, from the signature amuse bouche (cured salmon cloaked in tempura and topped with roe) to the warm greeting from Jill Kinney, his wife, partner, and fellow Per Se alum who runs the front of house with calm polish. Dishes are rife with classic French elements, but actual ingredients can globe-trot from Italy to Japan with plenty of Northwest stops. The Wednesday and Thursday night bar menu and Sunday dinners help Copine maintain a neighborhood restaurant persona even as special occasions abound in the main dining room (where dinner’s a remarkable value for food this exacting).
