Last week, Mary and I were invited to attend the beautiful Fall Menu Tasting Dinner at Six Seven at The Edgewater Hotel in Seattle, WA. Chef John Roberts prepared and presented an amazing dinner in their gorgeous dining room (the stunning sunset that evening was an added bonus!).
We all agreed that the setting at this lovely hotel is one of the VERY best in Seattle. The waterfront location and valet parking make it the perfect spot for out-of-towners AND locals. Six Seven is not your typical hotel restaurant – it is a destination restaurant.
The craft cocktail list offers a very special selection of fun, innovative cocktails that made for a lively start to the evening. I chose the Cherry Blossom Fizz (effen black cherry vodka and lauren perrier champagne) – Y.U.M! Chef prepared a silky-smooth Sweet Potato and Leek soup topped with chanterelles and a Golden Beet salad with all kinds of fall-ish goodies (candied pecans, craisins, oranges, blue cheese, fuji apples) which started our meal off on the right foot.
The Salmon Crudo appetizer was luscious and light and left me wanting MORE – until I peeked at the menu and noticed that there were LOTS of delicious dishes still to come…
Namely, Chef Roberts’ Pan Roasted Halibut! You may remember that I’ve raved about his halibut in the past and he succeeded once again in making me VERY happy! Honestly, if you have guests from out-of-town, or if you are craving halibut, Six Seven at The Edgewater is where you need to go. It was perfectly cooked, and this fall preparation over a saffron risotto and accompanied by mussels (bonus!) was comforting and delicious.
The deliciousness continued with Roasted Rack of Lamb and rosemary roasted vegetables. This dish was paired with a beautiful Woodward Canyon Cabernet which complimented the warm spices on the lamb perfectly! (Note to self: take the time to find the right wine to pair with a dish and elevate the entire meal experience!).
The beautiful conclusion to our meal was the Pear and Frangipane Tart – the bounties of fall in the northwest wrapped in a pastry. Perfection!
We both want to thank Chef Roberts and the Edgewater team for a lovely evening and we HIGHLY recommend you visit Six Seven at The Edgewater for beautiful scenery, tasty craft cocktails and an amazing dinner sometime soon.
