Last night was a night out with my better half at Goldfinch Tavern, an Ethan Stowell restaurant inside Seattle's Four Seasons Hotel. It was dark, swanky, and romantic and I probably could have stayed at our table for a long time. We had a view of the Ferris Wheel, all lit up for Christmas, and we each started with a Bailey's and Grey Goose Martini. It didn't feel like any tavern I've ever been to, maybe the name is supposed to be ironic. I loved how the restaurant sits on the second floor of the building, making one feel lifted up and able to enjoy the view of the city. We started with bread with an olive spread and butter topped with sea salt. Then we shared the Goat Cheese Bruschetta, the Hanger Steak, and finally, the Goldfinch Burger. The Bruschetta was a nice start, with creamy goat cheese and bing cherry compote which complimented beautifully. The steak almost melted in my mouth and was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The burger was really decent, too. With waygu beef, Beecher’s cheese, homemade pickles, smoked onion marmalade, and fries on the side, how could it not be incredible? We were both impressed with the food and the ambiance, big time.
