Anchovies & Olives – Seattle, WA
This has got to be one of my favorite seafood restaurants in Seattle. I used to frequent Oceanaire when it was downtown but now that it’s gone I’ve had to find my seafood fix and Anchovies & Olives definitely does that and more. It’s one of Ethan Stowell’s amazing restaurants. Each is pretty different in flavor and style but this one stands out the most being that it’s only seafood on the menu.
The menu has just been expanded to offer more of each course – Chicceti, Crudo, Primi and Secondi. It’s not uncommon for my husband and me to order some of our favorites off the menu every time (the Bigoli is always amazing!) but on our last visit we tried a few new dishes. Some were hits, a couple were misses…below are the highlights…
*Ethan (the server not Stowell) is great…if you can sit in his section do!
Ahi tuna, avocado, hot coppa, pickled radish – this dish is normally served with Escolar but the Ahi was great!
Grilled octopus, potato, orange, Fresno chili
Sea scallop, red pepper, tomato, mint, lime
Potato gnocchi, octopus & prosciutto bolognese, mint, oregano
