Seattle Weekly's Description

Run by one of the city's most talented chefs, Ethan Stowell, Anchovies and Olives is an intimate Capitol Hill spot that offers inventive, impeccably prepared food without the pomp of fussy downtown establishments. Distinguishing it from the other stars in Stowell's burgeoning restaurant empire, the focus here is on seafood, often showcased in unusual ways: halibut with zucchini flowers, mackerel with wild mushrooms, and bluefish with soft-boiled eggs. But there's simplicity, too, in Stowell's style, and the best dishes, like giant scallops lightly sautéed, manage to convey both purity and complexity. Come during the restaurant's version of happy hour, renamed power hour, and you can treat yourself to raw oysters for a buck apiece.

    They have great crudo. Whether you want to stop in for a quick bite or multi-courses, I just love it. Their food is super delicious.

    Don't let the name fool you - there are other things on the menu and they are all delicious!

    The focus is seafood. The menu opens with crudo (Italy's sashimi) and moves on to appetizers, pastas and entrees, all subject to change. Right now is spring themed. Crudo is accessorized in pink/green

    Must Order: Mackerel with shallot and walnut agrodolce, seared prawns with salsa verde, and geoduck crudo.

    Ethan Stowell’s Anchovies and Olives may not be quite what you were expecting.

  • Serious Eats on 08/16/13

    Prominent Seattle chef Ethan Stowell's seafood outlet. A great place for lovers of all things fresh: seafood, vegetables, and pasta. Don't skip the crudo section (think Italian sashimi).
