Le Pichet

Restaurant Le Pichet

Seattle, Washington 98101
Telephone: (206) 256-1499

This is a cozy little bistro with a solid menu executed well. There is not a place (that I know of) like this in Sacramento. The dish I was simple, but cooked properly. The ingredients complemented each other well. The quail was tender and juicy, but not gamy; the mushroom cream sauce was not too heavy and picked up some of the quail jus; the asparagus was fresh and went OK with the rest of the components, the livers brought some earthiness to the dish with the mushrooms and the noodles tied everything together.

The chocolate was thick, but not syrupy, warm and not too sweet with the whipped cream providing a nice cool contrast. A great end to the meal.

On their website is a schedule of different musical acts. All in all, the atmosphere is nice, the food was great as was the service as well as the conversation.
