Blueacre Seafood Restaurant Review

: Its grand spaces and accessible dishes make this seafood restaurant an easy entrant in the competition for business dinners and tourist stops. Chef Kevin Davis, also the chef-owner of Seattle's Steelhead Diner and Orfeo, and his wife Terresa are gracious hosts, serving seafood sourced from both coasts as well as the Gulf in preparations showcasing the best of every species. Start with something from the oyster bar, trusting your server to steer you in the right direction. Signature dishes well worth ordering include the Dungeness crab tater tots; cod encrusted in Tim's Cascade Potato Chips, a local purveyor, paired with frites; and the Southern-fried Draper Valley Farms chicken. Davis’ Louisiana roots are proudly displayed in one of the best po’ boys this side of New Orleans, too, not to mention the smoky braised collard greens and golden cakes made with lump crab. Desserts change seasonally, but you may encounter a maple syrup-infused panna cotta, an Italian plum buckle, and house-made ice creams and sorbets. The limited but thoughtful wine list is American-centric with a range of prices. Don't miss the annual Maine lobster feast each summer, complete with traditional neck-to-waistline paper bibs.

Blueacre Seafood

I got to know Kevin Davis' food quality and inventiveness at the Oceanaire, folllowed him to his own restaurant Steelhead and now to his Blueacre Seafood. After all that, and eating there often twice a week including Brunch on weekends, I think that I am eminently qualified for a review. I think Blueacre is the best overall seafood-specialty restaurant in Seattle. Kevin blends his classic training, and experience cooking in France and around the world with his New Orleans roots. He combines a perfect bearnaise sauce with poached eggs and sauteed crab legs with asparagas for the perfect brunch. Has a killer steak and burger, and still shines with all things seafood. He supports ecologically acceptable fishing techniques and un-common varieties to make you really take notice. Great all American wine list (Ok, he has Champagne) by Bruce is decently priced and interesting. Service has always been excellent whether in the bar or the dining room. Great value for the quality.
