Lecosho Restaurant Review

: Dark wood, warm lighting and friendly service contribute to Lecosho’s welcoming ambience. Large windows offer a view of Elliott Bay while the open kitchen affords a peek at the cooks hard at work. While the focus is on pork products (Lecosho means ‘pig’ in the native American Chinook language), other proteins occasionally steal the show, such as the tuna melt made with house-poached albacore. We like the Penn Cove mussels, steamed with the salty touch of chorizo, and the beef short ribs with an espresso rub. Catalan-style fish soup is packed with shrimp, clams, mussels and salmon swimming in a saffron sofrito broth. Entrée favorites include house-brined pork chops with polenta and salsa verde as well as a rib-eye with caramelized cippolini onions. Not in a mood for meat? Try the grilled wild sockeye salmon with citrus lentils and herb aïoli. If you’re visiting for happy hour, grilled sardines are a must. The wine list is accessible and affordable, and there’s a smooth, full-bodied wine on tap.
