Kind words

In the January 2010 issue of Seattle Metropolitan, Tilikum Place Café received a lovely write-up from Kathryn Robinson.  Points of praise go out to every aspect of the team; indeed, I work with a group of very, very talented cooks and servers.  Please read the full article (and Ms. Robinson's previous blog post praising our wonderful servers).  You should also be stopping by the restaurant in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle in the shadow of the Space Needle.  We’re not a “special occasion only” place, you can enjoy a wonderfully tasty meal in a warm and cozy haven from your office cubicle for no other reason than you deserve it.

Indulge me for a moment (since this is my website) to excerpt a few portions of the review that highlight my work...

“...And the crust!  A flaky testimonial to the miracle of butter.  Perfect.”

“...it was as moist and flavorful an amaretto bread pudding as the consummate Boat Street Café version.  Could all the desserts be this good?  (Read: How long might it take us to eat our way to the end of the long list on the specials board?)”

“Over the next few happy weeks we savored a venerable chocolate cake, featherweight cookies of various buttery persuasions, crackly profiteroles oozing profoundly vanilla housemade ice cream, a spicy pumpkin cake drizzled with honey and festooned with pumpkin seeds.” (links added by me for your enjoyment)

“We devoured quiches in which pancetta, sun-dried tomatoes, and fontina combined into an improbably creamy filling inside more of that perfect crust...”

This is the first time my work has been highlighted in an article and I am touched by Ms. Robinson’s kind words.  Kudos to the whole team at Tilikum Place Café!
