© Rock Creek Seafood & Spirits
You can count on Seattle’s food-loving crowd to discover and keep returning to this superb eatery with its cool vibe. Rock Creek is a fun place in the Freemont neighborhood with high ceilings, rustic wood beams, river rocks, and huge photo murals of roaring rivers that create a lively outdoorsy atmosphere of a fishing lodge or a mountain cabin. Chef-owner Eric Donnelly is a wizard with seafood and fish and serves local Northwest staples such as crab, mussels, and oysters, East Coast favorites such as striped bass as well as rarely seen exotic fish such as Hawaiian Ono or Kona Kampachi.
The flavors are international and complex and the presentation is pure art. To taste a bit of everything, go for small plates and try a few. To start with, you might go for the grilled Norwegian mackerel ‘In Saor’, pine nuts, currants, celery, pickled shallots, saba, and grilled bread. The wine list is very respectable and there are some great cocktails.
