I have finally gone to Art which is at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle. I have been wanting to go here for awhile just never made it there. The atmosphere is very nice, and classic décor, just what I like in a restaurant. Now to the food, I had the Scallop Carpaccio. I am a huge Carpaccio fan and if there is Carpaccio on the menu I order it. This was not very good. First the scallop slices were a little to thick, also I feel that if you are serving Carpaccio with seafood it is supposed to be dressed with lemon or lime and make it a little sour, but this was dressed with caviar and some kind of aioli. Not something I would order again. My husband had the chilled blue shrimp, and it was good but nothing out of the ordinary. For entrée I had the Truffle Gnocchi with truffle cheese and my husband had the dry aged beef striploin. Both very good, the gnocchi was very creamy and done perfectly however, very filling. The Striploin was prepared perfectly too. The entrees were very good but nothing out of the ordinary that i would get usually at a Four Seasons. Then the dessert menu came. WOW! This was my kind of dessert menu, I wanted to order everything on the menu. I couldn’t decide between the Apple pie, Molten Chocolate Cake, Warm Sticky Toffee pudding or the Vanilla Dusted Donuts. After awhile we decided to go with the Vanilla Dusted Donuts with maple ice cream and Washington huckleberry compote for two. According to my husband who is the donut expert these were the best donuts he had ever had, he said these are better then the ones at Lola or the Dahlia Lounge donuts. They were very good I have to agree but I am not the donut connoisseur. Overall I think Art is a good restaurant but I would probably just go back for the dessert menu.
