I don't go down to Seattle that often and never got a chance to try out any good food. I was determined on my last trip that I would try something amazing. We drove up and down Fremont several times before discovering the spot. One word of advice, if you are from out of town, keep your eye peeled on the left hand side and look for the number on the building instead of signage! Despite getting lost and growing frustration, we finally made our way in and were greeted with the fume of the smoky barbecue from the outside.
We ordered the meat of the day, lamb, prepared as a "good way to start" $22. It was cooked 3 ways; as a sausage, seared medium rare steak, and in a curry served with grilled naan bread and jalapeno pepper. The sausage was smokey with a sweetness to it, while the steak was juicy and tender. The curry, though a bit watery and subtle in flavour, was great for dipping with the naan. It was a good variation, and a fun plate for sharing.
The verdict: Yes!!!
The people at Revel definitely know what they're doing and they do it well. The menu is innovative and I can't go back for the short rib rice bowl and try more items!
