Cafe Juanita Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Holly Smith brings seasonal ingredients to life at this Kirkland destination. Simple d├ęcor, a huge stone fireplace and a rustic patio add style and comfort. The Northern Italian menu offers Wagyu beef with Gorgonzola and caramelized endive, and squab with Brussels sprouts. House-made pastas include hand-torn semolina gnocchi paired with saddle of Oregon lamb, or maltagliati with pork sugo. If sweets don't suit your mood --- although it's next to impossible to resist the Meyer lemon steamed cake with its tangy huckleberry reduction sauce, thyme, candied lemon and raspberry sorbetto --- perhaps partake of the selection of artisan cheeses. The wine list is as impressive as the menu, while the professional service and creekside setting add to the intimate feel.
