Frank’s Oyster House and Champagne Parlor: A User’s Guide

East-Coast–Style Oyster House | Free-Range Fried Chicken | Popular Happy Hour | Artfully Rustic Digs

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: goat-cheese deviled eggs with paprika oil
  • Oysters: oysters on the half shell with bloody mary granita
  • Small Plate: mini Maine lobster rolls
  • Big Plate: pan-seared cod with caramelized onion farro, sunchoke slaw, and brown butter
  • Dessert: chocolate whiskey cake with chocolate ganache, praline filling, and whipped cream

Behind the Name: Frank’s was not named by Frank but for Frank. Frank Duffin, the late grandfather of restaurant co-owner Sarah Penn, was a Bostonian whose hometown cuisine inspired the restaurant’s oyster-centric menu. His photos adorn the back wall and the Manhattan bears his name.

Inside Tip: Don’t just stick to stuff from the sea. Though Frank’s is an oyster house, it also serves critically-acclaimed fried chicken, which Eater listed on its “9 of the Bombest Fried Chicken Dishes in Seattle” feature. Cooks marinate free-range chicken breasts in buttermilk for three days, season them in a flour-and-cayenne mixt, and serve with gravy, biscuits, and honey butter.

Vibe: Stylishly rustic, yet elegant, with exposed ductwork, wood-panelled walls, and bulbous sconces.

While You’re In the Neighborhood
Before: Work up an appetite by perusing the off-beat antiques, handmade jewelry, and local art at The Curious Nest (2916 NE 55th Street).

After: Catch a unique comedy show at Jet City Improv (5510 University Way NE), which has a reputation for roping the audience into the fun.

If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Pair, Sarah and Felix Penn’s other restaurant, which serves up European-inspired farm-to-table cuisine.
