if so, zoe would get it. just got back from there - thanks rahul! that was easily one of the best meals i've eaten in the almost 10 years i've lived in seattle. the restaurant itself is great - superbly personable host, equally fun and nice waitstaff. drinks are yummy, very inventive and tasty. parking is icky in belltown, even on a wedn nite, but if you are willing to pay a few bucks and/or walk a few blocks then you'll be ok.
we tried the gnudi appetizer and it's the sort of dish where you just let it sit in your mouth and enjoy the flavors while you look at each other in disbelief that anything can taste that good. pretty darn orgasmic.
for an entree hubby had the gorganzola risotto with pear. just the right amount of cheese - not overwhelming. and the red wine-soaked pear was the perfect complement to the tangy risotto.
i had the highly recommended sea scallops, and i don't even like scallops but ended up just about licking my plate. 5 superbly cooked pieces of fish which surrounded a mixture of beans, carrots and bacon in an indescribable sauce. about 1/2-way through i was so full that i was beginning to get uncomfortable but i could not stop eating my meal.
we were way too full for dessert but the dessert menu looked enticing enough to get us back there soon. delicious cheese plates, a pear trio were the pears are soaked in red wine, white wine and sparkling wine. and more.
before i was finished with the appetizer i was already planning my next trip to zoe.
