  • Cafe Flora’s spring menu is in full bloom! 04.24.12



    With the sun shining and spring in bloom, there’s no better time to dine at Seattle’s vegetarian hotspot, Cafe Flora. Known for their creative vegetarian and vegan dishes, charming atmosphere, and fresh local produce, Cafe Flora has a new spring menu, offering a tempting lineup of must-try dishes!

    You won’t find meat at this vegetarian gem, but what you will find is unbelievably hearty and healthy seasonal dishes served straight from local farms to your table. Take it from Seattleite Magazine Meatless Monday writer Catherine Giudici who took the words right out of our mouth: “This spot’s spring menu has me sprung!”

    Spring Menu
    Spring Wontons – bock choy filled wontons, fried and served with goat cheese crema, rhubarb chutney and a black bean garlic sauce. (available vegan)
    Strawberry Butter Lettuce Salad – strawberries, peas and grilled spring onions cradled in butter lettuce in a basil black pepper dressing. (vegan)
    Nettle Ravioli – citrus cashew sauce, petite radishes and Jerusalem artichoke salad. (vegan)
    Tuscan Asparagus & Fava Bean Polenta – chive blossom polenta, grilled asparagus, fava bean mousse in an artichoke heart with sweet onion and nicoise olive tapenade, toasted almond gremolata. (vegan and gluten free)
    Spring Morel Risotto – hare covert and snap peas in an herbed pistou topped with Parmesano Reggiano and roasted cherry tomatoes.
    Potato-Crusted Quiche with Grilled Asparagus & Wild Morel Ragout – spring onions, fresh herbs, and goat cheese in classic custard with a thin potato crust. (gluten-free)
    Chocolate Brownie Coup – salted peanut butter balsamic ice cream, hot fudge, chocolate crumble. (vegan, gluten free, soy free)
    Strawberry Rhubarb Galette – hibiscus crème chantilly, honey caramel. (vegan, gluten free, soy free)

    If you’re still thinking a vegetarian restaurant is “only for vegetarians” you’re certainly not alone. Check out Seattle Weekly’s interview with Cafe Flora chef Janine Doran who’s admits she was intimidated at first, but now nearly 19 years later she continues to break the stereotype of typical vegetarian dishes with items such as Cafe Flora’s killer Spring Nettle Ravioli… that will leave you begging for more. Finish the evening with one of their amazing desserts, often vegan and gluten free, and you’ll leave full and happy with half the guilt!

  • SRW “Eat and Seek” QR Contest! How savvy are your dining skills? 04.06.12



    As if a $28 three-course meal isn’t enticing enough, The Seattle Restaurant Cooperative and The Seattle Times is spicing up Seattle Restaurant Week with a QR code contest to win some hard to beat prizes. Don’t count yourself out for this one. All you need is an appetite, a smartphone, and some savvy seeking skills.

    Here’s how it will work – Starting April 8, participating restaurants will be hiding a QR code somewhere in their restaurant. When you arrive, the seeking begins and it’s your job to craftily seek out where the QR may be. Once you find it, scan the barcode with either an iPhone or Android smartphone. This will automatically enter you to win a variety of prizes including:

    Grand Prize:
    A hotel stay for two at Mayflower Park Hotel with parking and breakfast for two at Andaluca.
    A progressive dinner at Nell’s Restaurant, Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar, and Dahlia Lounge.

    First Prize:
    A $75 gift card to Flying Fish

    Second Prize:
    A $50 gift card to Tilth restaurant

    Each diner can only scan the code once within a 24-hour period. If we’re doing our math correctly, this will give you 10 days to dash around different restaurants and find their QR code. We hear you… what’s a contest without a few clues along the way, right? Leave it to SRW to make this contest even easier, with some added “umph” to your savvy competitive side. Facebook will keep you up to speed as well as following #EatnSeek, @SeattleRW and any of the participating restaurants on Twitter. Together, these platforms will be providing clues to help guide you in the right direction.

    Don’t be fooled, you don’t have to be tech savvy to win this one. After all, this may be the one and only time it becomes politically correct to whip out your cell phone during dinner…don’t miss the opportunity!
