Clyde Common Restaurant Review

: Located near the Crystal Ballroom and other downtown music venues, and next door to the über-hip Ace Hotel, Clyde Common has a convivial atmosphere with a sophisticated urban style; the lively room features floor-to-ceiling windows, an open kitchen and a zinc-topped bar. Extroverts may take a seat at the communal table, while those desiring more privacy can choose a private table on the upstairs balcony. The bar is a big draw, offering a selection of artisanal alcohols, wines and beers, plus inventive cocktails. The kitchen is ambitious and prone to turning out intriguing combinations of disparate flavors on a meat-heavy menu --- vegetarians may have a hard time finding many choices. Dishes have included grilled bacon, apricot chutney, Gruyère and arugula; tagliatelle with sausage, shiitake mushrooms and pickled jalapeño peppers; duck with black garlic, cauliflower, tomatillos and bulgur; and pastrami short ribs with celery root and radish. Everyone will enjoy the fries served with two dipping sauces: crème fraîche and spicy harissa. The creative trend continues with dessert, where grapefruit sorbet with celeriac white chocolate ice cream and candied pistachio is a favorite. Brunch is more conventional but does feature a tasty Brussels sprout, cheese and egg option. A Northwest-leaning wine list has something for everyone.
