Walking in Southwest Queen Anne

With cobblestone lanes, historic landmarks homes, beautiful tall trees, small parks, awesome views of Puget Sound, Magnolia, the marina, and the fisher terminal…

Queen Anne is really one of a kind neighborhood.

I took a very nice walk on a sunny Winter Sunday, from Kerry Park (you know its classic view of downtown Seattle), to West Prospect street, West Highland drive, West Garfield street, Parsons Gardens, historic Wilcox Wall, Betty Bowen viewpoint, and also West Kinnear Place.

Queen Anne Neighborhood is on a hill, which means your route is full of beautiful stairways. Enjoy!


Eden Hill Has a Creative Chef!

We have only been to Eden Hill once but we cannot wait to go back. This restaurant is perfect for food lovers!

The space is tight but we had the chance to be seated at a small table right by the window. Otherwise tables are really close to one another.

But what is really worth the visit is the food! The chef is so talented and creative! All dishes were inventive, beautiful and delicious.

For me this is one of the best restaurants in Seattle.

They offer a tasting chef menu, but we were not that hungry that night. We chose to order 4 plates to share. We were more than happy with everything.

– Purple asparagus, egg yolk and cherry jam, crispy sunchoke, smoked and whipped Wagyu Beef fat
– Washington halibut Fava Beean and Ramp Panna cotta, charred kale blossom, lemon air
– Albacore tuna crudo, Yuzu Koshu and ginger Bubbles, kumquat, pickled mushrooms, wild onion flowers
– Veal sweetbread Tostada, house corn tortilla, radish, aerated creme fraiche, lime dew, habanero, ras el hanout
– Ruby Grapefruit curd, candied pistachio, rhubarb and verjus sorbet, olive oil cake.

Everything was amazing and beautifully presented. We need to go back for the Chef Menu.

Hommage once again

Update: Hommage has closed on 8/15/2015

We went to Hommage last October, a few days after it opened. It was pretty promising and it was time to go back.

When we arrived, we found out that a couple of friends were just seated there. We joined them and our party of 4 ordered a lot of  things on the menu. We were not disappointed: the beets with apples were delicious, Sea scallops were perfectly cooked, meats were tasty, and desserts unique.

My only complaint about our evening there is the cold ambiance in the main building. Next time we’ll ask to be seated in the glass house.
