THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chez Shea Restaurant Review

: Hidden on the second floor of an historic building in Pike Place Market, tiny Chez Shea is one of Seattle’s dining gems. Wide arched windows offer views of Elliott Bay and sunsets behind the Olympic Mountains. Each evening, candles and fabric-draped chandeliers transform the intimate dining room into an enchanting, magical space. The seasonally inspired, contemporary French cuisine is available à la carte or as a seven-course tasting menu for $70 per person. (Note that tasting menus require the entire table to participate.) For an additional $30 per person, you may include five wine pairings. Memorable beginnings may include a mushroom medley (shimeji, oyster and abalone) with fennel bisque, or seared Hudson Valley foie gras with rhubarb compote. Entrées range from simply prepared wild Alaskan halibut to a complex confit of five-spice Muscovy duck leg in a star anise broth. For a seductive finale, dip your spoon into the chocolate-hazelnut pot de crème, or enjoy the black bottom banana cream pie. In a nod to French tradition, there's always a lovely selection of cheeses. Wines by the glass or by the bottle are available, along with options from the full bar.
