35th Street Bistro



Pictured is the almond crusted trout on mashed potatoes with lemon butter that I enjoyed as an early dinner at this pleasant bistro in the Fremont area of Seattle. If you add a nut crust to any meat I'm probably going to sample, it's a great way to add flavor and a bit of crunch to tender meats. Almonds were a nice mellow paring for the trout and the perfectly smooth and delectably seasoned mash potatoes threatened to outshine the fish for star of this dish. My only complaint was for the undressed and bitter greens on top.

I have to mention that Sarah, my server, did a fantastic job because fantastic is a word not often associated with service in America.

I'm happy to hear you liked 35th. I've eaten there once, a couple years ago. I guess I'm still sad it replaced the Still Life Cafe from the days when Fremont was funky. Btw, a place you must try is Carmelita's.
which focuses on gourmet vegetarian fare.
