Boat Street review

Had a lovely meal at Boat Street Cafe last weekend. Late dinner (8:30); called an hour ahead and were able to get reservations for two. The restaurant was full when we arrived (aside from our table) and stayed that way! Lots of people having long, relaxed dinners, no one was rushed. Menu is small and full of interesting combinations. My companion had a pork chop with fingerling potatoes and pickled raisins. I went for the artery-busting pork belly with a red pepper puree, potatoes, and fennel. Shared a bottle of pinot. The bread was absolutely out of this world -- a small thing to mention, perhaps, but it's rare to have such delicious bread in a Seattle restaurant (in my opinion). It was just fantastic. Service was okay (had to ask three times for more bread), but overall it was an intimate and delicous meal that was quite unique. I was very fond of the original Boat Street and am happy that the new location is special as well. I will return.
