It’s that time of spring again! Seattle Restaurant Week occurred for 2 weeks with some of the best restaurants around the city. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s where these featured restaurants have a set menu for their guests to choose an appetizer, entree, and a dessert for $15 for lunch and $28 for dinner. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to go to the lunch, because personally I think that’s the best deal for such a nice restaurant! This year, I went to Palace Kitchen for dinner with some friends. This is a Tom Douglas restaurant so I knew that I can’t go wrong with this choice.
Atmosphere: Upon walking in, their bar is dead center of the restaurant with tables framing around it. Wide open spaces with high ceilings. It’s also pretty dimly lit.
Pricing: $28 bucks for dinner!
Service: Very helpful server who was really knowledgable. She was also attentive.
Grilled korubuta pork tenderloin, coal roasted broccoli rabe with garlic and chili, fried barley, pickled rhubarb, caramelized ham broth. The broth made it a little more tender, even though it already was. I must say there quite a serving of the barley!
My friend ordered this very classic dessert that Tom Douglas restaurants are known for! Coconut cream pie. This literally just melts in your mouth with each bite. Fun fact: You can order this at any Tom Douglas restaurant and if they don’t have any, they will go to a nearby TD restaurant and get it for you!
Overall: I would love to come here for happy hour sometime. I would also definitely get their coconut cream pie…. You can never go wrong with Tom Douglas!
