Seattle Weekly's Description

Fremont—the Fremont worth saving—survives and prospers as long as Brad Inserra is behind the stove at the Swingside. Inserra loves sautés, braises, and fricassees, often robed in dense, spice-scented tomato sauces. He loves piling nuggets of fresh seafood atop swirls of pasta, secreting seasonal mushrooms and vegetables in one-dish meals, creating a kind of regional Calabrian gumbo from whatever's in good supply right now. And all this hearty cooking is served in nicely noisy intimacy in a cozy space that makes diners feel like friends of the family.
