SRW Finale - Rovers -Chef in the Hat (2nd Seating)

This high-end Seattle restaurant will set you back hundreds of dollars, but it's money well spent for a classically French dining experience with a Northwest twist.

Hailing from the Muscadet region of France, Thierry Rautureau is the James Beard Award-winning chef and owner of Rover’s and Luc restaurants. Raised on a farm, Rautureau helped his mother prepare meals for the family. From an early age he learned to appreciate seasonal cooking and utilizing fresh, homegrown ingredients.

During a visit to see friends in Seattle, Thierry Rautureau, known as the Chef in the Hat due to his ever-present fedora, dined at Rover’s and discovered the restaurant was for sale. Charmed by the converted house tucked away in a private courtyard, and inspired by the ingredients found in the Pacific Northwest, Rautureau moved to Seattle and opened Rover’s in August 1987. Chef Rautureau’s vision is a warm, comfortable dining environment, similar to dining at a friend’s house. Rover’s is dedicated to professional service, exquisite wine and food, and an intimate environment.

    The perfect way to end the SRW blitz. The food was wonderful at Rovers (as usual), but really... it was the great turnout and show of foodie camaraderie that made this night memorable. Thanks Keoni and friends.

    If you've never been there, Rovers is a little bit hard to find. There's a large red awning that stretches over the sidewalk, and their name is written on it, but sometimes there's a tree that obscures the sign. The restaurant itself is hidden from the street (they're in a courtyard). Just remember that they're on the same block as Luc, which is at the corner.

    October 25, 2012
