Blind Pig Bistro - Seattle, WA

We heard tasty things about Blind Pig Bistro so we came here for our date night on Friday. The location is unexpected, a tiny spot wedged between a Subway and a teriyaki joint in a mini strip mall, but we didn't judge the book by its cover and thank goodness. The food was delicious! We couldn't stop ordering..

Chalkboard menu because items change frequently. I like the option of a half or full size so you can sample more dishes.

Handwritten wine list.

Started off with oysters: two Kumamotos with scallion and coriander marionette, and two Fat Bastards with grapefruit and pimentón ice.


Fluke crude with avocado, chillies, and apple. The creamy crudo was perfect with avocado, offset with a hint of sweet tanginess and a kick.

Chioggia beets with blood orange, fennel, sorrel, and horseradish yogurt. I love beets and this dish was very fresh with the citrus notes and subtly spicy from the fennel and horseradish.

Staring adoringly at the roasted kale and quinoa salad with a poached egg, radish, and crispy capers. One of my favorite salad combos ever.. must try to make this at home.

Our favorite dish of the night.. Sturgeon with brussels sprouts, anchovy, pine nuts, currants, and mint. The sturgeon was so flavorful and buttery, and that brussels sprouts mix was incredible. We should have ordered like ten of these.

Pork belly with treviso and cauliflower. Happy to see treviso, this Northern Italian veggie, being used. It's been pretty "trendy" lately in food.

Skirt steak with charred eggplant, hedgehog mushroom, and potato confit. Hedgehog mushrooms are so good!

Finished off the meal with a rich chocolate mousse drizzled with sea salt, olive oil, and spices.

  5. Is this where the old Sitka and Spruce was? If so - it looks like they did a good job replacing it (and it kind of seems like this place might be a new and improved version of the old thing?). If I'm wrong then whoops and disregard all of that!

    I hope you and the fiance had a great night. Date nights are always the best!

  14. Those are the usual foods that I order when going for a date. Those are also the foods that I really miss because of doing online dating.
