Southpark Seafood Restaurant Review: Located downtown, Southpark is ideal for museum-goers or anyone enjoying an evening at the symphony, theater or movies. The attractive room features exposed beams, a wood-burning oven, and comfortable booths looking out onto a busy street. A contemporary Northwest menu emphasizes sustainable seafood, much of it locally caught. Sample the prosciutto-wrapped trout with cabbage and bacon, or the ahi with winter vegetables paired with a mushroom and olive broth. Top off your meal with seasonal desserts such as chocolate crostata and strawberry cream tarts. A hungry group looking for a special treat may reserve for the "Copper Top Dinners," a seven-course meal at the copper-topped bar personally served by chef Ryan Gaul. The extensive wine menu will not intimidate less-experienced wine drinkers and should hold surprises even for amateur sommeliers. Happy hour features various small plates for $5 that you can readily combine into a meal: shrimp and grits; burgers with caramelized onions, tomato jam and fries; pizza; and Brussels sprouts with breakfast sausage. On pleasant days, sidewalk seating offers views of the city's bustling action. Service is friendly and unpretentious.
