just when you think it can't get no better, then it does....

(a line from one of our favorite John Hartford songs - seemed fitting)

We just got home from the most spectacular meals out we've had in a LONG time. We went to Spring Hill in West Seattle - owned by Mark Fuller, who is a true culinary genius. Not to mention a James Beard award nominee and a nice guy.

I was too excited and forgot to take a photo of our appetizer. It was black squid linguini with clam butter and chilies. Delicious. Then came our entrees - Dan had the wagyu sirloin with a cheddar thyme popover and an arugula salad. I had rainbow trout with summer squash bread, brown butter and toasted hazelnuts.

We ended with a chocolate tart with caramelized bananas and salted peanut ice cream. Too die for.

We left feeling full, satisfied and completely happy. Wish every restaurant made us feel like that. Thanks Mark.

side note: only had my phone with me - no real camera = not so great photos. wish I could have done better justice to the beautiful food !
