The Low Down On Green Living
January 3rd, 2008
Seattle is a very green city– so much so that it’s even called The Emerald City. And fittingly, the city offers a scrumptious array of organic dining options. We’d like to thank our friend, Jessie Griess, an architect in Seattle, for sharing her outstanding recommendations with us!
When I read about The Herbfarm restaurant I almost got in my car and started driving up the coast to make it in time for dinner! The Herbfarm serves seasonally-appropriate menus featuring the foods of the Northwest. They are dedicated to using local ingredients– as they say, “The Herbfarm believes that no dish can be better than its ingredients, and that the best ingredients are usually local.” A dinner is a 9-course affair and each course is paired with exceptional wines. Dinner now features such divine items as Westcott Bay Oysters in a sorrel sauce and Reef-netted Lummi Island Sockeye in a squash blossom with lemon and thyme. The setting and the decor are as artistic as the dishes. Eating at The Herbfarm is truly an experience to be savored!
The Herbfarm is located at 14590 NE 145th Street in Woodinville, WA 98072. Phone is (425) 485.5300.
Another dining experience not to be missed is a meal at Marjorie. Chef Carrie Christensen creates intentionally eclectic menus. She focuses on organically grown produce and buying from small, local purveyors and suppliers whenever possible. Marjorie’s kitchen is full of the best possible raw ingredients which are lovingly combined to create an unforgettable menu. The chef frequently creates amazing tasting menus, and the restaurant often has winemaker dinners as well.
Marjorie is located at 2331 Second Avenue, Seattle, Wa 98121. Phone is (206) 441.9842.
Let us not neglect to mention Lark,located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill. Lark is a cozy, comfortable restaurant that is perfect for a warm night with friends. Lark’s menu features an assortment of small plates, allowing you to savor courses of cheese, charcuterie, vegetables, grains, fish, and meats. They work with local artisans, farmers, and foragers to create an ever-changing selection that offers the best of each season. Lark encourages communal dining with waves of courses coming to your table. Taste the seasonal bounty and you’re sure to enjoy yourself.
