New Seattle restaurant: Olivar
We had a great dinner last night at the newly opened Olivar restaurant on Capitol Hill.
The food was excellent. A range of small and large plates of French/Spanish descent, with attention to detail in presentation and an assortment of Spanish wines. I particularly enjoyed the arugula, beet and goat cheese salad, the stuffed pork chop and the hanger steak.
Interior decor was a pretty cool, the place was very busy for only its second week and a visit by a visibly-but-not-overtly-proud Chef Thomelin was a nice touch.
(Footnote: I was mistakenly looking for 'Olivars' which seems to mean almost nothing on the web)
