Epulo Bistro Review
Darkly lighted, smartly furnished, and urbane, this hip bistro in the heart of downtown serves seasonally driven Mediterranean food with plenty of Northwestern influences. It's very easy to make a meal here of several tantalizing small plates, like sautéed Brussels sprouts with bacon, chili, and garlic; and Penn Cove mussels with saffron, orange, and leeks. But there are plenty of tasty main dishes to consider, too, including braised-beef short rib with garlic-mashed potatoes. Wood-fired pizzas are another stellar option.
