The owners of Herban Feast Catering have brought West Seattle a new take on local Northwest cuisine served up in what feels like a trip to the spa accompanied by eclectic internationally inspired dishes. Fresh Bistro in West Seattle has been open for a few months now but when we heard that they had started serving Brunch we decided to make a trip to the other side of the pond and check it out. This bright and beautifully decorated restaurant has an open kitchen where you can watch fresh local ingredients become seriously creative entrees that could be considered works of art.
We were quickly greeted by our server with an excited introduction to the restaurant and a basket of freshly baked treats to keep our stomachs occupied while perusing the menu. These were served with huckleberry and golden raspberry jams from Woodring Northwest Specialties.
After some very difficult decision making and a little help from our super friendly server we settled on the Sopes; a fried masa cake topped with vegan chipotle flavored Field Roast Sausage (to replace the shredded pork), summer squash, roasted tomatillo salsa, kohlrabi slaw, cotija, black beans, and served with spanish rice and a fried egg. This dish was just as delicious as it was gorgeous with all of it varied flavors, textures and temperatures.
The prices were spot on, the service was outstanding, and our food was extrodinary. With lunch, dinner, dessert and happy hour menus still left uncharted we are looking forward to making Fresh Bistro a regular stop when visiting West Seattle. Now that we have enjoyed the inside of the restaurant on our next trip we will take advantage of the lovely patio dining area where diners can eat while surrounded by flowering plants and quiet streets.
