TASTE Restaurant

Thank you everyone for replying to the post, I really appreciate the input. I went to the restaurant over the holidays. I thought the butternut and chevre tartlet (with an excellent braised green side), the barley risotto (with chanterelles) and the black olive polenta (with roasted fennel and squash) were the three best dishes that I tried on the winter menu. All are well prepared and full of flavor. I would go back to have these dishes again. The roasted guinea was very good and cooked well, but I did not care for the potato-chive gratin that accompanied it. I also really enjoyed the pike ale and bay brined pork. Both the cioppino and the albacore were a miss which tasted a bit bland. The braised rabbit was probably the worst dish I tried. Our waiter recommended some excellent local wines, but I'm afraid I cannot remember them. I decided to go with TASTE as the caterer because I thought the food was well presented and while some of the items were a miss, some were really excellent. Thank you all for your time and comments!

TASTE Restaurant

I was wondering if anyone has tried the TASTE Restaurant (1300 1st Ave) or ever had them cater an event? If so, would you recommend this as food for a catered event? (I am trying to decided weather the food would be good for a wedding, but I will not be in Seattle for a while to try it out for myself). Has anyone ever tried the salt-encrusted salmon or the kalamata stuffed beef tenderloin? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!
