the Walrus and the Carpenter – Seattle, WA

the Walrus and the Carpenter – Seattle, WA

There’s a reason this restaurant has been named one of Bon Appétit’s Best New Restaurants in America in 2011.  The food is so well executed and different and the atmosphere couldn’t be more charming.  They offer a number of small plates broken down into a few categories: oysters, pantry, garden, fish & shellfish, meat, cheese, and sweets.  The menu constantly changes giving you another reason to continually go back.  The only drawback is that reservations aren’t taken and considering how small the space is you’re usually waiting an hour to get in…however…there IS Staple and Fancy next door and Dutch Bikes which both are excellent places to grab a drink beforehand.

Oysters: sammish sweets (my favorite!!!), barron point and blue pool)fried brussels sprouts, chives, sea saltsmoked trout, pickled onion, lentils, walnuts, créme fraichesalmon tartare, sauerkraut, celery leaf, carawaymaple bread pudding, espresso butter sauce, whipped cream

I can honestly say it’s one of the BEST desserts I’ve ever had in my entire life!
