Etta's Seafood Restaurant Review: A member of Tom Douglas’ restaurant empire, which includes Dahlia Lounge, Lola, Palace Kitchen and Serious Pie, Etta's Seafood has the same signature quality as his other dining destinations. Brightly hued tiled mirrors line the walls, iron sculptures shaped like fish bones serve as coat hooks, and whimsical light fixtures that evoke octopus tentacles illuminate the dining room. Douglas’ eclectic culinary vision borrows from points East and West to create a seafood-centric menu heavily accented with comfort food. Appetizers favorites include saké steamed clams and grilled octopus. Main dishes feature Dungeness crab cakes, cod fish ‘n’ chips and Alaskan halibut. Non-seafood lovers will enjoy the smoked chicken breast or the hand-cut spaghetti with artichokes and green garlic almond pesto. As with all of Douglas’ restaurants, desserts are worth the splurge --- go for the classic triple coconut cream pie or spiced carrot cake.
