White Swan Public House (SEA)

I sat for a late dinner here about two months ago, understanding that it is related to Matt's in the Market, which has been one of my past favorites for seafood-centric meals in central Seattle.

I could not resist the notion of Poutine O’ The Sea (Little Neck Clams, Fries, Chowder, Bacon and Scallion). I'd say it was about 80% as good as I hoped it might be; a little light on the clams. It did work well as a marriage of two rib-sticking old favorites. Also quite nice was Scallops (Roasted Carrots, Mint, Bonito Crumbs, Lime), which was reminiscent of some of the higher-priced rotating dishes I have enjoyed at Matt's. The only one that did not work was Fried Brussel Sprouts. Pehaps it was our mis-step in doubling down on the bonito flakes, but it also seemed that this particular veg. just did not take well to the deep fryer (who knew?).

The location was bit dead on a rainy winter's night, but I bet the outdoor patio adjacent to the marina is nice during warmer times. I'd probably wait until then to return.
