Red Cow - Seattle
So many accolades and awards have been bestowed upon restaurateur/chef Ethan Stowell since he opened his first restaurant, Union, in Seattle.
He was declared "Chef to Watch" by Seattle Magazine and Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 2005. In 2008, he was named one of the “Best New Chefs in America” by Food & Wine. And in 2011, he was nominated by the James Beard Foundation for “Best Chef Northwest.”
Along the way, under Ethan Stowell Restaurants, he's opened more than 10 restaurants, including Red Cow. Located in Seattle's trendy Madrona neighborhood, the classic French brasserie features house-made charcuterie, local shellfish, a full bar and a robust offering of steaks.
Steak frites are the specialty at Red Cow, and the choices are a beef lover's dream. Diners get to choose from several cuts, including an eight-ounce hanger, eight-ounce teres major, eight-ounce filet mignon and one-pound boneless ribeye. Those desiring something beyond steak fare have choices like roasted half chicken, moules frites and wild king salmon.
A happy hour menu offers discounted bites. Choose from steak brochettes and frites, chicken liver mousse and a burger topped with white cheddar.
