Restaurant Review: Sazerac

Before we went to Les Misérables on Thursday night we grabbed dinner at Sazerac because it's right around the corner from the theater. Stew and Erin hadn't been there before but it's one of my favorites because the food is delicious and the happy hour menu is available in both the bar and the restaurant daily from 4pm to 8pm. It's also usually relatively easy to get a table without much of a wait.

Erin arrived early and got us a table by the window so we could people watch and chat while we waited for Stew to arrive. Our waitress was incredibly nice and accomodating about the fact that our party kept arriving at different times.

Stew found the menu to be a little "fancy" for his taste and instead of ordering small bites from the happy hour menu decided on a burger and fries.  

Special Grind Burger with cheddar and crispy bacon,
cabernet onions, housemade pickles, and hand-cut fries: $16

Erin and I opted to share a few things from the happy hour menu... 

Deviled Eggs with smoked ham and jalapeno: $4

Crispy "Truffles" with yukon potato, truffle cheese and truffle aioli: $7

Little Cheese Burgers "Deluxe" with cheddar, lettuce,
tomato and garlic aioli: $5

I really liked sharing the small plates because it left just enough room for dessert...

Watermelon blackberry house-churned sorbet: $6

Ooey gooey chocolate cake with pouring cream: $8.

We really went all out with drinks, food and dessert so we ended up spending about $75 before tip for three people. Not the cheapest happy hour in the city but the food is so delicious, happy hour goes late, and you never have to wait for a table, which keeps Sazerac pretty high up on my list of favorite Seattle happy hour locations. Yum.

  1. Yum! Yes, sharing small plates often turns out more expensive! But man, it's so much fun! I think that's why I love Tapas.
