Yes, I’ve said to my friends: “I love Mercer Island, but keep driving if you’re looking for a place to eat. We’ve got a great Thai restaurant for take-out, but when we eat out, we go to the city or Bellevue.”
I take it back. Last night we tried Bennett’s Pure Food Bistro on 27th. It’s good.
They call it pure food because they serve organic and free range. Makes sense to me- we mostly do the same at home. There must be a come-uppance somewhere, health-wise or karma-wise, for eating birds kept in a box their whole lives. I suspect the health effects will come out sooner than the karma effects.
Food that is both delicious and well documented.
The interior reminds me a little of Purple Cafe. The cheese plate is excellent.
Cheeses: not enough stinky ones for my taste, but good creamy ones.
I had the pan-seared halibut, which was good, but next time I’d make sure to ask for it rare. I’d assumed it would be. Also tried my husband’s tomato soup and mac & cheese, and I’d go back for those alone.
What else to do on a rainy summer night? And what’s with the rainy summer nights, anyway?
