Art of the Table
1054 N 39th St, Seattle WA
Closed Tue, Wed & Sun
One of the best of the new breed of unrestaurants, this teensy six-table Wallingford room with the butter yellow walls and the World Beat music also serves careful, delectable food: four courses, Thursdays through Saturdays, along a theme that chef Dustin Ronspies shyly narrates from the kitchen door. (This may include a sermonette, be warned, about the virtue of eating communally.) The charming Ronspies is a gifted chef, turning out dishes marked by subtle contrasts and textural interplay: smoky poussin with sweet spring vegetables and yam puree, perhaps, or thin-sliced red and golden beets over whipped chevre on flaky pastry. If the theme is, say, summer solstice, you’ll likely get nasturtium petals strewn across your salad and a “full moon” of honey panna cotta for dessert—fun dishes to speed the bonding with the other foodophiles at your table. Mondays bring small-plate happy hours.
