Hello! I will be celebrating my 24th birthday next Tuesday at the Tilth restaurant in Seattle. I have never been, but after seeing the owner/chef Maria Hines on Iron Chef and reading about Tilth in the Seattle Met Magazine, I am excited! I have never been to a restaurant of this price-point and I want to make sure that I am not disappointed (though I highly doubt that will happen here) with my order.
Here are some of the menu items I am considering:
Hors d 'Oeuvre (date, blue cheese, almond)
Carrot-ginger soup (carrot-ginger chutney, chives, garlic)
Chilled Heirloom Tomato Soup (basil, heirloom tomatoes)
Pete Knutson's Wild Salmon (tomato water, currant tomato, romano bean)
Pan Seared Alaskan Halibut (artichoke barigoule, picholine olive, fregola)
Farro Risotto (basil pistou, mornay sauce, spinach)
Cheese Tasting (1, 3, or 5 cheeses with accompaniments)
Theo Chocolate Ganache Cake (chocolate cookie, cocoa cream, sea salt)
This question is for those who have eaten at Tilth: What do you recommend from the above choices?What items are "must-haves" and what won't be worth the money?
