Bon Appétit, the national food magazine, has declared two new Seattle restaurants to be among the nation's best.
Of Marmite in the Chophouse Row building, the magazine advises you go there “to rediscover the hall-of-fame cooking of legendary chef Bruce Naftaly, who came out of retirement to introduce a new generation of food lovers to the pure pleasures of classic French cooking.” The magazine suggests you order the soup, the terrine de foie de volaille, duxelles-stuffed rabbit saddle and the coq au vin.
On Mean Sandwich, the editors consider that Ballard spot a go-to place “for chef-driven takes on classic grinders, subs, and hoagies.” They suggest ordering the corned beef, Italian sub, Buon Appetito (think chicken Parm) and don’t forget the “Skins & Ins,” fried potatoes.
