Seattle Weekly's Description
Marjorie is quite tasty, a hidden gem in a dismal condo building. It's pretty packed, and the floor plan is disorganized--the way the desks are arranged in elementary special-ed class. Still, if you don't mind braving all of the crowds to fit into this tiny magical wonderland, then you'll love Marjorie. Ten bucks gets you an enormous filigreed heap of plantain chips, accompanied by salsa as coarse as a joke overheard at a NASCAR race. Cuttlefish, appealingly singed on the outside but tender and ivory inside, was delicious. And in lieu of dessert, we ordered sea bass, which was pan fried, with a crispy skin and flaky flesh, and served atop a pile of blanched sea beans.
Tips from foursquare
Rollicking, intimate, offbeat venue for food-fascinated urbanistas.
The True Burger is the truest of all burgers: It's made with grass-fed Painted Hills Beef ground in-house, topped with bone marrow aioli & harissa ketchup, & served on a bun from Columbia City Bakery.
Sit outside on a sunny day and drink a Marjorie Negroni. Celebrate!
Try the Plantain Chips (via @Foodspotting)
One of the best places in Seattle. Awesome people, amazing food. It's solid.
