"Growing up, I spent a lot of time over in the Blue Mountain," The Blu Grouse owner Diana Lane told Seattle magazine. "My father use [sic] to hunt up on Grouse Flats, where his ashes are now. Blu Grouse stems from that."
In the renovated Georgetown house that previously held Tiger Lounge, Lane and her chefs enhance healthful meals built on quinoa or fresh vegetables with indulgent touches of honey-walnut mayonnaise or rosemary-lemon butter. Flatbreads come topped with traditional Italian ingredients as well as more creative flavor combinations—such as the mozzarella, fresh mint, peanut sauce, zucchini, shredded carrots, and bean sprouts that crown the thai option. The spot's outdoor fire pit creates an ideal setting for roasting cotton balls for s'mores, as well as for enjoying specialty cocktails such as a blood-orange old fashioned with Maker's Mark.
