Seattle Restaurant Week – 1

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.

Food:

IMG_6903Grilled 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! 

IMG_6920My dessert – red velvet cheesecake, whipped with white chocolate ganache and red wine syrup. Wow I couldn’t believe how delectable this was!

IMG_6915My 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!
