Plum Bistro

While my kitchen is still in a bit of a disarray from my recent move, I thought this would be a fun chance to share some photos of one of my favorite restaurants in Seattle: Plum Bistro.  Plum Bistro is located on Capitol Hill and serves brunch, lunch, and dinner.  They also have several cafes located around the city as well as a food truck and market at Seattle Center.

Makini Howell is the Executive Chef and Owner of Plum Bistro and her food is incredible.  I am anxiously awaiting her new cookbook (to be released in April 2013) that is now available for pre-order through Amazon.

I usually go to Plum Bistro for the weekend brunch (pictured), but if you are looking for the best sweet potato fries, spicy mac ‘n’ yease, or tempeh in the city, Plum Bistro is a must.

Besides the amazing food, I love the funky interior of the restaurant and the big doors they open during summer (you can see some great interior pictures on this blog.)  All of the food served at Plum Bistro is vegan with a focus on sustainability and seasonality. If you are visiting Seattle with a mixed group of eaters, be sure to stop at Plum Bistro as even meat-eaters and vegetarians will find something hearty and delicious to enjoy.

Have you been to Plum Bistro before?  What are your favorite dishes there?

    Fun. My daughter and I were just in Seattle and went to Plum Bistro. I ordered the best pizza I’ve ever had. Mushrooms and a parsley cream sauce. Amazing. We also shared their rosemary fries. It was a highlight of the trip.
