September 27, 2011 Tilth: Seattle, WA
Tilth has a vegetarian tasting menu, with wine pairings. As someone who was once served three courses of wild rice at a restaurant in Belgium (“we love vegetarians!”), this is a big deal to me. Organic, fresh ingredients — and they accommodate vegans.
Loved the cucumber soup (served with a sweet breadstick — surprising ) and buttery risotto, but I was, weirdly, amazed by the cheese plate: salty, creamy gouda with a plum jam and the flakiest, most delectable cracker I’ve ever had.
Tilth’s Maria Hines beat Iron Chef Morimoto. I bet it was the cracker that the judges swooned over.
Cozy bungalow setting. We had a nice table, but some tables were in awkward corners — may want to specify when you make reservations, which are absolutely required. Interesting wine list, though an early morning flight meant we only had a glass each.
