Lecosho Restaurant Review

: Large windows offer a view of Elliott Bay while Lecosho's open kitchen offers a peek at the cooks hard at work. Dark wood, warm lighting and friendly service contribute to a welcoming ambience. While the focus is on pork products (Lecosho means “pig” in the native American Chinook language), other proteins occasionally steal the show, such as a tuna melt made with house-poached albacore. We particularly 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. Entrées 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, plus there’s a smooth, full-bodied wine on tap.
