Boat Street Cafe Restaurant Review

: While chef Renée Erickson is known for her Northwest-influenced, seafood-focused restaurants (The Walrus and the Carpenter, The Whale Wins), her original homage to Provençal-style French cuisine remains well worth seeking out. Finding Boat Street Café in its edgy urban warehouse location may be difficult, but once you settle in, you won’t be disappointed. The rustic, white-washed dining room is filled with whimsical silk lanterns and giant paper parasols suspended from the ceiling. Creamy pumpkin soup topped with Laudemio olive oil is a good starter. Entrées include a whole pan-roasted Idaho trout with roasted beets, and a pork loin chop with Beecher’s cheese gratin. Meat lovers enjoy the Painted Hills rib-eye paired with fingerling potatoes. Consider the savory roasted onion flan, too. Sweet finishes range from ginger ice cream to a dark chocolate pot de crème. Staff is friendly and professional.
