Matt's in the Market Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Matt's in the Market makes waste of the saying "the better the view, the worse the food" with its window-side seats overlooking Seattle's waterfront and Elliott Bay and true taste of Pacific Northwest cooking. Head to the third floor of the Pike Place Market's Corner Market Building and you'll discover this stylish yet casual setting ideal for enjoying the straightforward dishes featuring the Market’s freshest seafood and produce and the chef's more adventurous ideas, as in cured Washington salmon with dill cream, caper relish, smoked white asparagus and cured duck egg yolk.

Food & Drinks: The ever-changing menu may include appetizers such as steamed mussels and clams with chorizo, and seared foie gras with a sour cherry doughnut. Entrées can range from seared scallops and seafood stew to roasted duck breast and Prime New York steak, for looking for non-fish options. Dessert brings indulgences such as the candy bar square made with salted caramel mousse, peanut butter nougat, chocolate cookie crumble and fried peanuts. A well-developed international wine list, cocktails and attentive service add to the appeal.
