Recently enjoyed a nearly flawless meal at Cascadia, a restaurant that seems to be under the radar of most foodies in Seattle. Can't imagine why. This place has got it going on. The dishes were creative and gorgeous. The room is lovely. (Wrote about it in my Quiet Dining story in last week's What's Happening section.)
From start -- the brilliant "Alpine" martini with juniper sorbet -- to finish -- the magnificent "deconstructed" rhubarb pie, this was one of the best dinners I've eaten in the city. Yet, on a Saturday, the place was just half full. Am I missing something? Why isn't cool Cascadia as popular as, say, Zoe or Flying Fish?
