From the wintry nostalgia of a newspaper tycoon's simple youth to the notion that all of the earth's flowers are our pals, the rosebud is a fitting symbol of rosebuds. For $10, today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of parade-stopping meals at Rosebud Restaurant and Bar. Voted Seattle's Best Romantic Dining restaurant in 2006 by Citysearchers, Rosebud offers an amorous atmosphere with American dishes peppered with all-natural and organic ingredients.
Rosebud resides just west of the Harvard Market, boasting an outdoor patio and a red-walled lounge where local art hangs above striped, cushiony couches. Accents of jazz emanate through the air while roses stand within curvaceous glass vases that complement a patron's perusal of the menu, which is filled with savory classics. A spinach salad with spiced walnuts, goat cheese, and a raspberry-balsamic vinaigrette ($7) lays fresh foliage on an appetite, preparing the way for fire-roasted prawn cocktails with jicama-carrot slaw and golden beet–horseradish puree ($10), and baked mac and cheese with smoked gouda influences ($9). Bone-in pork loins are paired with roasted parsnips and apples ($19), while vegetable aficionados can indulge in a three-cheese vegetarian lasagna baked with marinara and béchamel sauces ($15).
Because dessert and brunch are the most romantic meals of the week, Rosebud serves distinctly homemade layered mousses ($8) and fruit-filled bread puddings ($8), as well as a weekend lineup of chicken-sausage omelettes with sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, and mozzarella ($11), along with a sweet-potato chorizo hash with two eggs any style and a small salad ($10). Love shouldn't be confined to closed-door romance chambers. It should be honored at breakfast nooks and supper shanties, where food cravings merge with lovers' bellies.
- The Rosebud has a cozy interior...and impeccable service, and it's also an indisputably good place to have brunch...And if it's one of those sporadically beautiful Northwest days, then the charming patio in back makes for the perfect place to waste the morning away with a cup of coffee. – Heather Logue, Seattle Weekly
Along with receiving a near-perfect 4.5 stars from Citysearchers, Rosebud won a Best of Citysearch in 2006 for Best Seattle Romantic Dining. Yelpers give it four stars, and 74% of Urbanspooners like it:
