Seattle Weekly's Description

Every A-list art museum now boasts a top-tier restaurant, and our downtown SAM will not be left behind. During the day, TASTE serves as a full-service cafe with a takeout section for nosh-and-browse art appreciators. Nighttime TASTE becomes a multiple-course restaurant. The food, locally sourced and organic, matches the urbanity of the decor, with dishes like roasted guinea fowl served on a creamy turnip puree and, for dessert, a blueberry buckle deconstructed. In the sunlight, the spare, white-on-gray decor makes the perfect setting for TASTE's art-lover/tourist/business clientele. At night, the room grows cold and empty, failing the accomplished food consumed within.

    Of course TASTE is a great place! I loved TASTE long before I started working here. The food is so fresh and local! It's an amazing feeling to know that everything you are eating was picked from land that surrounds our beautiful city.

    The miniburgers at Taste wore enough bling to make Beyoncé jealous: cumin-spiked Gouda, sweet pickle relish, hot pickled jalapeño and Dijon aioli, all tucked daintily in a brioche bun.

    Sommelier is excellent. Most of the ingredients are locally sourced. Never had a bad experience here. Good place to go for drinks, appetizers, or full on multiple course dinner for hours.

    Fab happy hour, 3-6p, $6 food bites + drink specials. Sunday brunch, get chicken & waffles, mimosa or man-mosa. $12 Urban Supper on Sun. nights. Wed-Sat lunch: roasted tomato soup+grilled cheese!!!

    Enjoy pickling? Then you'll want to stop by TASTE's booth at Seattle Weekly's Voracious Tasting on 4/27/11 to see how the pros do it! YUM.

    Voted Best Chicken and Waffles in Best of Seattle 2010! Taste does a motherclucking fine rendition of chicken and waffles for its Sunday brunch with local, sustainable ingredients!
