Mistral Kitchen is always a good idea

It is always a pleasure to be at MistralKitchen even if the menu does not really change. For lunch or dinner, it is always a good idea. You can also choose to sit at the bar, for a glass of “Champagne du moment” or a great cocktail, and some small plates. They also have sidewalk tables with a nice view of the Space Needle.

Hamachi crudo, Italian charcuterie plate, and all the desserts are my favorites but Foie Gras Torchon, Seared Foie Gras, Manila Clams, Cheeses, Robuchon Potatoes, and Chicken are always delicious. For lunch, they serve a large and delicious wood-fired pizza (Tomato, Prosciutto di San Daniele and Arugula) and a fantastic salad with buratta.


Unique Brunch at Joule

For a delicious brunch that differs from your traditional American bacon and eggs, check out this place.

We already enjoyed going to Joule for dinner (Joule is a jewel) and I couldn’t wait to try their brunch. And oh my… it is at the same level and it did not disappoint us.

You choose an entree from the menu and help yourself to the buffet. They change the theme monthly for the buffet. When we went in February it was Cajun and I tried all the dishes! Unique, surprising and flavorful!

Sincerely, these guys are gifted. They also run REVEL (Winter Lunch at Revel and Sunday Day at Revel) and opened a new one (TROVER) that I need to check out some day.

It is $17 for entrée and buffet and they also offer a kids option at $10 (eggs and toasts and buffet included).

Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

I highly recommend making a reservation.

Brunch at Oddfellows

These past weekends we’ve had brunch at different places in Georgetown, Capitol Hill, and Wallingford.

One of them is Oddfellows Cafe & Bar in Capitol Hill.

The ambiance of Oddfellows is very casual (but what isn’t casual in Seattle?). I like the lively atmosphere of this cool restaurant, perfect for a brunch with the family or friends.

I like the vintage style details in the décor, as well as the flowers in vases on raw wood tables.

The Food we ordered was very tasty comfort food.
– Home made Biscuits with scrambled eggs. Biscuits were fresh and fluffy
– Eggs Benedict with avocado and tomato.
– Breakfast Panini eggs, bacon, provolone, tomato.
– I had the Veggie Hash skillet with lemon ricotta and fried egg that I highly recommend.

Don’t go there for an intimate lunch, it is loud and you can be close to people.

If there is a wait, you can always go to Elliott Bay Book Company next door, or the music store that sells vinyls across the street.
