Our last night in Seattle was spent at Staple & Fancy, which incidentally was right next door to The Walrus & The Carpenter. There are a TON of amazing places to eat at in Seattle but Lady Ducayne (who left the trip at the end of the Vancouver leg) raved about the family dinner at Staple & Fancy. For $50/pp, we got the below items which was tailored for our party of three.
We were able to sneak a peek at the table next to us and see the items that they got for family dinner and some were a bit different, as they had a party of four. You can also order a la carte if you don't want to partake in family dinner but for the amount of food we got? Totally worth it!
Family meal consisted of "a bunch" of appetizars, a pasta, two entrees, a cheese and a dessert. As stated, if there are more people at the table, then the number of pastas/entrees/desserts increase.
housemade speck, crouton, microgreens
radicchio, frisee, arugula salad with proscuitto, candied walnuts, parmesan
cornmeal fried oysters, Calabrian chili aioli
mozzarella, housemade tapenade
seared ahi tuna, red peppers, avocado puree, cucumbers
parsnip puree, fried sage
pappardelle pasta, beef bolognese, root vegetables
swordfish, cauliflower, fingerling potatoes
strip loin, braised escarole, pancetta, parsnip puree
l'tour cow/goat/sheep milk cheese from France, quince paste, marcona almonds
dark chocolate hazelnut terraine, salted caramel, chocolate gelato
panna cotta, huckleberries
The last dessert was extra, as one member of our party loved panna cotta and couldn't resist getting it.
I can't rave enough about how good this meal was. If you find yourself in the area, I definitely recommend going for dinner one night. At one point, I honestly loved it more than The Walrus & The Carpenter (sacrilege!!) ... and as of now, I'm still debating. Sorry, oysters.
