7650 Southeast 27th Street Mercer Island, WA 98040 +1 206 232 2759
The name pretty much sums up what this gem of a restaurant on Mercer Island is all about. Fresh ingredients and the talented kitchen staff combine to create memorable dishes with a delightful lack of anything artificial or processed. The menu's focus is on the Cascadia region that spans a number of states including Alaska, California, Oregon and Idaho. The food philosophy is deceptively simple, get the freshest natural ingredients you can, and don't mess with their basic flavors. Obviously, this is easier said than done, but the staff excel at what they do. The stellar accolades and awards Bennett's has received, is testimony to this. The restaurant's interiors have a stylish, contemporary vibe with lavish use of wood and warm hues. The restaurant is an excellent avenue for private functions as well. A star in Mercer Island's culinary landscape.
410 Burnett Avenue South Renton, WA 98057 +1 425 226 2666
The charmingly old (but not ancient) building that houses Red House reeks of coziness almost as soon as you enter. A warmly-lit dining room, deep wooden hues on the floor and shelves stacked with wine and beer occupying pretty much every inch of the wall space make for interesting interiors and gives off strangely relaxing vibe. The green tables with blue-cushioned chairs add a contrasting dash of coolness to the warm hues in the room. The serene outdoor patio sees a perennial bustle, and is an excellent choice in summer months. The restaurant is renowned for it's tapas selection, which though not extensive, is varied when it comes to the flavors and combinations. Apart from this, there is also a selection of salads and entrees. The wine selection is astoundingly large, with close to 700 varieties and 20 available by the glass. Equally spectacular is the choice of beer with 500 on offer and seven on tap. Selections from the entire list are available for purchase. Check website for more.
