Seattle Weekly's Description

The formula at this extremely popular restaurant is simple: Find superb fish, prepare it simply for maximum integrity of flavor, and then surround or top it with accompaniments ranging from the subtle to the bizarre. The result is an eating experience ranging from agreeable to revelatory. An example of the latter: a simple grilled fillet of salmon on a pool of porcini-flavored butter sauce. Try to stay on the main floor if the reservationist will let you. Or dine in the bar, where you can eat most of the same dishes those at tables are eating.
