We are settling into our new apartment in Tennessee but before we left Washington we had to have one last weekend of eating with our dear friends Jamie and Steph. We went to Seattle for the day and did a sort of self guided walking/eating tour around pike's place market. And ended up going to a "gastropub" call Quinn's on Capitol Hill for dinner.
This place is amazing! They had a 5 page menu, one page was food and the other four were beer and whiskey. The service and the food were some of the best I have ever had.
Here we are seated and awaiting our food.
chicken liver croquettes - our awesome waitress brought these out to whet our appetites
frites, fontina fonduta, dime-glacé
marrow bones, citrus jam, baquette
grilled half chicken, chickpea purée, olives, tomatoes, arugala
painted hills beef, spring onion, mushrooms - we forgot to take a picture of this until after Jeremy plated his
Our awesome waitress served it tasting menu style bringing each dish out one at a time so we could all share and really focus on one dish at a time. awesome, awesome, awesome. Dinner was followed by a trip to Fado Irish Pub to drink a Guinness and eat brownies topped with home-made Guinness ice cream.
Jamie and Steph - we already miss you!
