Seattle Weekly's Description

Chef Seth Caswell proves that rustic cuisine doesn't have to mean simple. Dishes like grass-fed beef Bolognese with pork and organic orecchiette ($14) and gathered mushroom tart with Cypress Grove goat cheese, leeks, spinach, and pears ($14) are less precious than the more refined cuisine at Tilth, but the seasonally inspired, locally derived menu at Emmer & Rye is conceptually spot-on and tasty as hell. The old Victorian house that Julia's once called home is a perfect stage for upscale farmhouse dining. Small and large plates come in half or whole portions, which makes it easy to sample a bunch of items without breaking the bank. Make sure to save room for cheesecake-it's Caswell's grandmother's recipe and it's garnished with fresh berries.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/21/10

    Chef Seth Caswell opened his restaurant Emmer & Rye in an old Victorian house. The venue is inviting, the food is good and the prices are moderate. Has a knack for cooking simple dishes.

  • The Seattle Times on 07/14/10

    Local greens are used here to accentuate the taste of meat. Happy Hour daily from 4 to 6 p.m.; Shared plates & sandwiches from $1-$9, $3 beer, $4 wine and $4 rye Manhattan.

  • Seattle Met on 06/30/10

    Emmer and Rye’s farm-to-table menu begins with pure ingredients and ends with reasonable prices.

  • Seattle Met on 11/16/10

    At Emmer, Caswell spends about 90 percent of his dollars on local food; close to 100 percent when it’s produce and fish.

  • Bori 2. on 03/05/10

    Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service and really amazing flavors. Get lots of small plates and try their EmmerCosmo and the Matilda. Sabroso!
