Seattle Weekly's Description
What the what? A sustainable, local-driven resort restaurant in a reclaimed wetlands near SeaTac Airport? Sounds like something out of a sci-fi flick: Swamp Thing a la Mode. But this is a very serious effort to do the right thing, if the right thing is to focus on local ingredients. The chef, Mark Bodinet, started his career at the tres fancy French Laundry in Napa Valley. His menu reads like a who's who of Washington farm/fish superstars: St. Jude's albacore tuna, Painted Hills rib eye steak, Nash Family Farm rabbit, Bluebird Grain farro and more. If you eat and drink too much, there's a probably a room for you at the home of Copperleaf, the Cedarbrook Lodge.
Tips from foursquare
The 27-year-old chef is a protégé of Cedarbrook's culinary director, Roy Breiman, who most recently commanded the culinary team at Salish Lodge.
An inventive take on Northwest cuisine, with precise flavors and enough quirks to make things interesting. The 140-wine list is tight but well-chosen, featuring Washington and Oregon wines.
A place this amazing should not be allowed this close to an airport.
We can't wait for you to try their delicious menu at Seattle Weekly's Voracious Tasting on April 27 at The Paramount Theatre. Yum!
