Heads up, Belltown. Bell + Whete is now open a stone's throw from its sibling restaurant Local 360.
While Local 360 is known for using ingredients sourced within driving distance to its kitchen (and incorporating bacon into sweets, savories, and cocktails) Bell + Whete's concept is, per press materials, inspired by "the history, bravery and boldness of the hard-earned Anglo-Norman culinary tradition." Translation: a lot of meat.
The menu from Executive Chef Forrest Brunton (Tilth, Restaurant Zoe, Lola, Linda Derschang restaurants) features fresh takes on comfort food: roasted pheasant with gin-glazed carrots, minty wild salmon, and sections dedicated to charcuterie and house-made sausage (including boar bratwurst and a duck and foie gras option.) Also, a nightly 3-course tasting menu for $30.
Bell + Whete serves lunch starting at 11 a.m. Monday through Friday and dinner at 4 p.m. daily. Plus, weekend brunch from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and daily happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
