Alchemy Bistro & Wine Bar
Alchemy Bistro & Wine Bar Review
This upscale eatery overlooking Haller Fountain offers a blend of Italian, Spanish, and French favorites alongside Pacific Northwest fare, including succulent salmon, oysters, and mussels. Start with rich, creamy stuffed poblano peppers, or oyster stew with leeks, ginger, garlic and fresh tarragon. Entrées include a selection of salads, seafood, and pastas as well as the often-requested Drunken Rabbit, slow-cooked in red wine with garlic, carrots, and onions. Other mainstays include duck breast with myrtle berry butter, cassoulet with rabbit, chicken garlic sausage, and braised lamb chops. Sunday brunch features wild salmon Benedict, crêpes with fresh berry compote and marscapone, crème brûlée French toast, and endless mimosas, and there's an evening "small bites" menu in the dimly-lighted, intimate bar.
