Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Canelé
$$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, French, Full Bar, Northwest
"Alissa's canelé have a perfectly caramelized exterior with the most amazing custardy center."
Lamb kidneys
$$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, French, Full Bar, Northwest
"Order anything on this menu of French fare, but a recent fave was a dish of lamb kidneys, whole-grain mustard, mushrooms, and pommes purée. God, where was the Chablis?!"
Chicken liver mousse
$$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, French, Full Bar, Northwest
"OMG! I first had this dish in summer of 2011, and the next day I brought my sous chef back in with me to have it a second night in a row, because it was so amazing that I had to try and analyze it to improve our own at Beast! Hey, imitation is the best form of flattery, right? I ended up getting engaged to the bar manager there, so the chicken liver mousse will always have an extra special place in my heart!"
