The Whale Wins

The Whale Wins Review

The menu at Renee Erickson's newest restaurant (she also runs The Walrus and the Carpenter in Ballard) focuses on vegetables, which, along with other menu items, are roasted in the wood-fired oven at the front of the bright, whimsical space (look up at the ceiling: the lights spell out h-e-l-l-o). The vegetable plates are unfailingly excellent, but everything that comes out of the kitchen seems blessed, whether it's a juicy roast chicken with capers and preserved lemons, a roasted whole trout, or a delicious slab of rabbit terrine. A plate of sardines on toast for the table is a must, even if you don't think you like sardines. Order family-style so that you can sample as many dishes as possible.
