Located on the banks of the Ship Canal you’ll find The Book Bindery. You might miss it as the building looks more like a warehouse or office building rather than a restaurant.
We recently enjoyed this restaurant for Sunday Brunch. This must be Seattle’s best kept secret, because hardly anyone was there yet this place offers an exceptional meal and experience.
We were seated in their atrium which was a nice open space with lots of natural light. On this particular day, the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining, the doors were open and the roof of the atrium was lifted.
A trip to the powder room gave me a chance to look into their dining room. It was charming with an old world touch of molding and mill work throughout. Books lined the walls which continued the theme, reminding me of a library doubled as decor.
Presented with a menu, I was so impressed at the substance and beauty of their book-like collection of food and drink. Bound nicely, menu pages were secured with photo corners. Wow, I was already impressed.
We (my husband and I) ordered heavy, wanting to taste as much on the menu as possible:
- Wagyu Beef Tartare
- Smoked Pork Belly
- Soup & Sandwich
- Black Truffle Fries
- Coconut Sorbet
- Ginger Lemonade
Fabulous! That really sums up our experience. The plating of food was beautiful, presentation was as good as tasting the food itself. Anica, our server was very attentive and our plates came out at a nice pace.
