Seattle Weekly's Description

Over the course of 18 months, Sitka & Spruce founder Matt Dillon and Wylie Bush gutted a gorgeous Spanish revival building under a highway overpass to create a urban-rustic restaurant that aspires to be a center for Seattle's food community. The communal dinners that fund their enterprise range from $30 picnics to $140, four-hour, eight-course meals with multiple wine pairings (check thecorsonbuilding.com for a schedule, and don't think about showing up without reservations). Dillon's food is ultra-local, replete with homemade conserves and cured meats as well as finds from his frequent farmers-market runs. Like many garden-oriented chefs, he can get so dazzled by his ingredients that he forgets to do enough to them, but when it comes to seafood, meats, and other savory dishes that require careful cooking, the chef's amazing technique shines.

    Great bbqs during the summer time at the Corson Building OR stop by on a nice day and buy a bowl of cherries and a bottle of wine. Then...sit in the garden and enjoy:)

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/24/10

    Well off the beaten path, expect to circle the adjacent blocks trying to find it. Dinner is served just a few days a week. There is one seating a night, a set menu and a fixed price. $80 a person.

    Tuscany meets Georgetown in a little farm with big flavors.

  • Justin on 07/07/12

    Go here. Eat everything! That's the tip.

  • Ola A. on 03/21/10

    The beets and walnut sauce salad and the combo squash with Brussels sprouts salad are simply delish!!

  • David S. on 02/21/10

    Eat whatever the chef puts in front of you, while sitting at table with strangers and becoming friends.
