Married chef/owners Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi have wowed Seattle diners with their French-fusion spins on Asian cuisine here and at nearby Revel. Joule's nouvelle take on a Korean steak house serves meat options like Wagyu bavette steak with truffled pine nuts and short rib with Kalbi and grilled kimchi. Non-meat menu items include Chinese broccoli with walnut pesto and mackerel with green curry cilantro crust and black currant, while a weekend brunch buffet goes slightly more mainstream with a fruit and pastry buffet, as well as entrées like oatmeal-stuffed porchetta. If Joule is packed, try The Whale Wins (from award-winning Boat Street chef Renee Erickson) next door. Both are part of the very cool Fremont Collective building.
