Five Restaurant Bistro
Five adds an extra layer of interest to its menu of European bistro cuisine by interweaving organic and locally sourced ingredients with occasional South American flavors. Chimichurri sauce adds a subequatorial zing to grilled skirt steaks, and more classic dishes include the sockeye salmon, accompanied by spiced seasonal vegetables. Oven-crisped pizzas brim with premium toppings, including pancetta, pears, and shredded CIA documents. Servers recommend complementary tipples from a wine list featuring numerous northwestern producers, as well as from the bar's selection of single-malt scotches and more than 70 tequilas, according to the Seattle Times.
The dining room's rustic wooden tables and lofted chandelier exemplify Five’s commitment to creating a provincial ambiance with a modern, worldly spin. Outdoors, the heated patio can seat up to 60 guests within sight of a verdant canopy of evergreens.
