TASTE Restaurant Review

: TASTE, an independently operated restaurant at the Seattle Art Museum, has a gallery-like ambience with its sparse, modern interior and menu that aims to be artful and ambitious. After a day at the museum, relax with "Flight and Bites," a clever combo that includes three wine tastes paired with three small appetizers. Small plates are reasonably priced and good for sharing while enjoying a selection from the well-chosen, 100 percent Pacific Northwest wine list. The duck rillette is well-seasoned with tangy mustard, and the nettle gnocchi in a cream sauce features bright touches of acid from an apple cider gastrique. Larger plates might range from crab and house-made angel hair pasta to beer and bay brined pork chops, and a grilled hanger steak. Desserts are exploratory as one might anticipate in a museum setting; options have included a deconstructed candy bar and olive oil cake with pistachio buttercream and rose gelée. At night, candles create a romantic glow to make TASTE a pleasant destination for an early supper or late night dessert.
