RN74 Restaurant Review

: Conceived by Michael Mina, this wine-focused restaurant boasts a menu designed to make each glass shine. Named after a highway in the Burgundy region of France, RN74 brings a New York vibe with a hint of Las Vegas to Seattle. The elegant interior features leather booths and dark reclaimed wood that add rustic charm --- it’s a creative collision of classy European train station, posh wine bar, and expense-account club. Unfortunately, high noise levels rule out quiet conversations. Start with the Hudson Valley foie gras sliders served with caramelized onions and apple mustard, or the tomato soup fondue. Other first courses range from escargots with garlic herb butter to maitake mushroom tempura. Entrées taking center stage include truffle butter tagliatelle topped with a soft-poached egg, and wild Alaska black cod paired with shrimp dumplings and baby bok choy. For dessert, be sure to order the hand-cut beignets with salted caramel sauce or the opera torte with espresso curd and almond milk ice cream. The wine list offering more than 10,000 bottles is pricey, but also has some mid-range options, plus 35 wines by the glass. Service is polished but surprisingly casual in a pleasant way.
