When I told Sonni that I was looking for a unique place for dinner in Seattle, Washington, she immediately suggested The Butcher’s Table. After browsing the menu, I immediately made reservations.
When you have a friend that has a similar taste palate to you, it’s more than often best to just trust them for success. Plus, we’d visited Umi Sake House numerous times. But for this trip, I wanted to try a new place.
In a seafood / fresh catch city, I wanted the polar opposite: steak.
First impressions of The Butcher’s Table was Seattle decadence. It felt rich, luxurious and smelled delicious. We were led into a well appointed dining room and seated. As expected, the menu looked like every way you could make a cow taste divine. After browsing the menu, the order of events was set into play.
As usual – and a personal favorite, I started out with a MANHATTAN cocktail. Added to that, a round of OYSTERS (served with champagne mignonette).
The BEEF FAT BRIOCHE (sea salt, cayenne) was rich, fatty and everything you’d expected from a savory bread course.
It was the perfect segue to the stars of the show…..
The prime selections of the 16 OUNCES OF 5-STAR (a 4- ounce piece of filet mignon, eye of rib, zabuton, and manhattan cut new york) platter offered a showstopper of pieces of well crafted meat. Together, with the BEEF FAT FRIES (house sriracha) and ROASTED CARROTS – and we had an incredible dinner.
Everything worked together for an outstanding oral journey. Dinner at Butcher’s Table proves that Seattle isn’t just about seafood. Well worth a return visit.
