  • List – Belltown

    Posted on | May 28, 2009 | 7 Comments |

    I haven’t been doing many restaurant reviews lately, there is no other excuse than just my laziness. Sometimes I forget my camera, sometimes I forget to click pictures but most times the pictures just sit there on my camera forever!  Anyway, as I was doing some PC housecleaning today, I found a few pictures from List, the not-so-new-anymore Belltown bar. It is one of our favorite places in town, so I want to get as many people in there as I can before another good place goes bust!

    List is at the location where Apartment Bistro used to be, right next to Umi Sake House. It is one of those swanky looking places with a New York vibe to it. Dim lighting, red counter tops, mirrored walls and nice music, the ambience is perfect for a night out with friends. Looks like it is a popular place for Girls Night Out’s as I have seen many girls only groups there, in fact one particular night there were only three guys there, and the restaurant was almost full. The place looks really posh, but the prizes are on the inexpensive side for a bar that looks like that, especially if you get there during happy hour (4-6:30pm daily and 10pm-Midnight Sun-Thu). All the food items in the menu are half off and there are some great deals on wine bottles and beer and wine by the glass. Regular prize for the dishes ranges from $6-$14 , and the menu offers a wide variety of options including a few vegetarian items. At half prize and good sharable portion sizes, the food here is a bargain for sure!

    We have tried most of the meat and fish items, and our favorite dish is the Spicy Meatballs ($8). It is so flavorful and the Macrina bread they serve is perfect for mopping up the last drop of that spicy sauce.  Another favorite of ours is the Bacon wrapped Prawns ($12). No pictures, sorry!The juicy sweet shrimp wrapped in crispy salty bacon offers such a contrast in flavor and texture, it is just out of this world! I am a sucker for bacon wrapped anything, but the not-that-into-bacon husband of mine also enjoyed this tremendously! We also love the Gnocchi with black truffle cream ($11) pictured below with the pillowy soft gnocchi and the generous shavings of black truffle, it is a fabulous dish. Neither of us liked the Grilled sea bass ($14), it was lacking in flavor even though it was a fine piece of fish as fresh as it could get. It was served on some sauteed Kale and lentils, two of my favorite sides. The Cannelloni with Spinach and Ricotta is fine, though it wasn’t special enough for repeats. I also recommend the flat breads, roasted duck leg, Angus burger and the hanger steak, well I don’t think there are any really bad dishes here anyway. Oh, did I mention that the service is great too?

    Wow, as I finished writing this I have a sudden urge for an Angus Burger and fries, we might just end up there tonight. Darn, I think we just missed the happy hour!

      The one time i ordered gnocchi – it was so disappointing. Found the sauce it was in too bland and rich. This sounds so good.
