Chefs at Equinox Restaurant and Bar hunt down regional ingredients to craft eclectic, seasonal noshes in a recently revamped industrial space. In the dinner menu, evening taste buds and nocturnal sporks forage through a forest of onion rings and corncob wheels nestled beside the sizzling coulotte steak ($21). Meanwhile, shrimp, mussels, and calamari teeter across tomato-laced pasta tightropes in the fettuccine arrabiata ($17.50), which pairs wonderfully with the vodka, rosemary, and lemon juice of the Clooney cocktail. The brunch menu overflows with morning munchies, such as the Equinox bowl, a hodgepodge of potatoes, chicken sausage, bacon, and veggies under a hearty helping of cheese sauce and salsa ($8; add scrambled eggs for $2.50). Finally, placate bellies or help hamburglars to eat healthfully with a house-made black-bean burger on a brioche bun ($10; add caramelized onions and sharp white cheddar for $2).
Equinox Restaurant and Bar enlists renewable energy to power ovens and high-octane pepper grinders. Floral centerpieces and glowing candles draw attention to wooden tables and chairs in a dining room constructed from recycled materials, and a picturesque courtyard goes even greener by enlisting the décor of clouds and breeze.
Equinox Restaurant and Bar
Equinox Restaurant and Bar’s chefs craft a constantly rotating roster of seafood, steak, and pasta dishes using fresh and seasonal ingredients harvested from the Pacific Northwest. A rainbow of signature cocktails blooms on candlelit tables inside an industrial-looking space, and the dining room’s laid-back vibe spills out onto a landscaped courtyard that welcomes up to 45 diners. The eatery was built from recycled components, and further appeases Mother Earth by employing renewable energy sources to cook dishes instead of forcing diners to do it themselves.
