Small Plates

My friend Carla and I celebrated selected new Seattle hot-spot Lark as the location for our birthday dinner. This cozy, neighborhood haunt is run by chef John Sundstrom and features an array of ever changing, delectable small plates - echoing the tradition of tapas but substituting French cuisine. The night was absolute perfection, twelve friends sampling a smattering of plates, laughing, drinking wine, and soaking up the flavor. Just to wet your palate, here are a few samples from our dining experience.

- Ricotta gnudi with roasted squash, pinenuts, currants and brown butter
- Mussels with bacon, apple cider, thyme and cream
- Spanish mackerel with Bomba rice, kale, chorizo and Marcona almond
- Venison chop with baby beets, marble potatoes, red cabbage and rye salt
- Valrhona chocolate cake with almond croquant and coffee ice cream
