Best Restaurants: While there are no wolves being braised here, just the thought – How would one cook a wolf, where would you start? – gets to the core of chef-owner Ethan Stowell's philosophy for this branch of his Seattle foodie empire (Tavolata, Anchovies and Olives). He breaks things down to their base elements, deconstructing dishes to the bare essence of their perfectly-chosen ingredients. Stowell achieves this through a simple and rustic take on Italian-inspired plates, served in a sleek, urban-lodge of a space outfitted in rough-stacked stone and unfinished vertical wood paneling. Start with the simplicity of dishes like the Celery Root Soup. Savor the Soft Boiled Eggs with parsley, pine nuts and crispy potato. Dinner-sized plates that rotate through include options like seared scallops with roasted beets, pearl onions and balsamic and grilled pork belly with honey crisp apple and Treviso, a red Italian radicchio.
