A love letter to Palisade Restaurant

Dear Palisade,

You told me that you wanted to stand out from the crowd during Seattle Restaurant Week. You said that you didn't want to skimp on what you had to offer to me. You said that you wanted to put your best on the menu.

Your colossal prawn, sitting upon a blue cheese salad, was so smokey and seductive. Your lobster, presented two ways, was almost too rich for me. But, I allowed it for a special night. I expected a little dollop of a dessert, but the platter you brought me surpassed all obligations.

I had forgotton what a treasure you are, hidden amongst the cruise ship traffic. My belly was full and my heart was warm as I drove away last night. Even the trawler ships looked romantic in the soft light of dusk.

Awaiting our next encounter...

me.
