Lloyd Martin. My absolute favorite restaurant in Queen Anne and probably one of my top 5 restaurants in Seattle. Sam does such a great job of modern American dishes that are unique and really worth while. I know I’ve already done a post featuring them during Seattle Restaurant Week, but here goes another This event was celebrating their 3rd anniversary and they had such a good deal for $25/person showcasing 10 different dishes along with bread and other appetizers.
Atmosphere: This is a 21+ restaurant with bar seating about about 6 tables. Good for a company of four. I would advise to make reservations because this hit spot can fill up quickly!
Pricing: A whopping deal for $25/person. Suchhhh a good deal I couldn’t believe it.
Service: My favorite server is Michael. He has such a class while presenting dishes to you! I love that he describes each one as they come out. He also doesn’t need to check our ID’s anymore because he recognizes us.. hehe
So after we got some appetizers (bread and cheese/meat plates), we were served our first course. Black truffle with white bean mousse! Nice starter for the night.
Their infamous hamachi crudo! Great bite size hamachi with that extra garnish to accentuate the flavor of the fresh fish.
Mushrooms with sherry and thyme! Quite an ample amount of mushrooms. Really, who doesn’t love mushrooms?
Big shrimp, chirizo, and sherry butter. WOW! Succulent shrimps that had banging flavor.
Lobster and chicken caramel ravioli. Nice subdued flavor of lobster that was gave it a sweet subtle hint from the caramel.
Pumpkin pie soup! Nice palate cleanser in the middle of our courses.
They ran out of their gnocchi fondue, but instead got the sweet pumpkin ravioli with truffles. The truffles are really to die for.
Elk ragu with huckleberry. Ok by now, I was getting quite stuffed. Not too gamey, but you can definitely tell it wasn’t chicken.
Pork roast and house BBQ. Great way to end the night with this hunk of meat. Tender, and cooked to perfection.
Maple cotton candy. Fun dessert that was quite interesting. Again, Sam mixed up the flavors with the salty, but sweet taste.
Overall: Congrats to this restaurant for making it 3 years! I’m a loyal customer and will be back. I can’t believe all these 10 dishes were only $25! Such a deal. They put a lot of thought into their dishes and it’s always such great quality. Keep up the great work!
