Seattle eats: Cafe Juanita

Share Button

From one extreme to the other, I went from the minimalist emphasis on clean flavors of Bisato to the complex and multilayered approach of chef Holly Smith at Cafe Juanita. The multiple component plates with bold and contrasting flavors showcased the Northern Italian cuisine that has won Cafe Juanita multiple awards.

@nonstopmari the Foie and sweetbreads definitely made it onto my "final meal" list.

@Melissa808 this is what you get for going to San Francisco without me. =P

@mjc_808 I'll be dreaming about that seared foie. It has usurped the Foie waffle at Bradley Ogden in Vegas as my favorite Foie dish.

@edmorita Hey!! If I recall, you backed out of the trip! OK so I still hate you. As if I don't tell you enough already!
