My favourite spot for dinner in Seattle. Good food, a nice setting and a great location. The menu was navigable and not overly complicated, but the food was interesting and packed with flavour.
After hatching in 12th Avenue, chef Mr John Sundstrom’s Lark moved to new premises in the Capitol Hill neighbourhood, then stretched its wings and flew. Approaching the corner site, you can tell it’s going to be a special place to eat – it’s handsome, dramatically lit, and always has a convivial buzz. The food is local to the Pacific Northwest, using the best of local farm produce in often-rich, hearty but sophisticated dishes that absorb classical European techniques – typical is octopus with piquillo peppers, or ribeye with pommes de terre Robuchon.
