Restaurants with Healthy Menus: Award-winning Executive Chef and restaurateur Josh Henderson has done it again, this time bringing an intimate, cozy and welcoming eatery to the ever-expanding business zone of South Lake Union. The full-service restaurant and bar represents an exciting return to the kitchen for Chef Henderson (of Westward and Huxley Wallace fame), who now cooks regularly alongside Chef de Cuisine Andrew Iacono. Vestal's diverse menu concentrates on Pacific Northwest ingredients that ebb and flow with the seasons, and a mesmerizing seven-foot coal-fired hearth inspires many dishes that delight both return diners and wowed newcomers. Be sure not to miss sensational items like the livieto e pepe and roasted cauliflower with romanesco and shaved duck plus vegan options like the compressed melon dish. An extensive bar menu lists handcrafted cocktails featuring spirits from local distilleries and around the world, and an alluring wine lineup emphasizes gems spanning the Pacific Northwest.
Local Expert Corinne Whiting Says:
Restaurants with Healthy Menus: "Reserve ahead of time, and ask for the best seat in the house–at stools near the hearth, with chefs hard at work just a feet away from your highly interactive dining spot."
