Portage Restaurant

There is nothing better than taking a chance on a new restaurant and having it be amazing. Wait, there is something just a little more enjoyable… have a Bloomspot for that place too! I saw a Bloomspot deal for this quaint little French Bistro called Portage on Queen Anne hill in Seattle. It looked inviting, low-key and had an impressive menu. These are all traits that Will and I look for. We walked in and were greeted by the host/server. That’s right, small enough that it could be a one woman show. There we 7-8 tables, two of which were situated in cozy front window nooks. The tables were covered in white linens and local art lined the walls. We each had a glass of wine, I had a delicious Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. The food was divine. Seared diver scallops with potato risotto, peas and a savory cream sauce. The scallops were perfectly cooked and incredibly sweet. Will had their Painted Hills steak with a red wine, mushroom reduction. To start we shared a spring salad of asparagus topped with an over-easy duck egg. It was an amazing meal, and I am so happy to recommend this place. Bon Apetit!
