Altura Restaurant Review

: One of the few tasting-menu-only restaurants in Seattle, Altura asks its guests to trust the chef and share a culinary trip paved with luxury ingredients mixed with Northwest and Italian ideas. The hallway of a space on bustling Broadway hides what happens behind the marble counter in the open kitchen. That's where chef Nathan Lockwood prepares 10 signature courses that might include albacore crudo; chicory salad with Honeycrisp apples, hazelnuts and Gorgonzola; and seared foie gras accented with pineapple quince, huckleberries and fennel. Inventive pastas range from risotto mantecato with guanciale, pumpkin and crispy kale to pappardelle with a spicy Calabrian-style rag├╣ of braised tripe and beef. Pan-roasted Pacific cod may be accompanied by scallops, grilled radicchio, lentils and blood oranges. Desserts, such as a chocolate-pistachio crostata, also excel. Menus may be accompanied by wine pairings that won't disappoint, or select from the fine and fairly well-priced wine list featuring Italian selections. There are also a few craft beers and even flights of grappa.
