727 Pine is an extraordinary restaurant. The food is inventive and elegant. Service is helpful, patient and sympatico. This is the type of restaurant where you take a bite of just about any dish & the sheer suculence makes you close your eyes, take a deep breath & thank god that you’re alive to enjoy it. The food is somewhat pricey and the decor is international hotel restaurant sleek (& impersonal)–it’s in the new Elliott Hyatt in downtown Seattle. The location is also off the beaten track from the rest of downtown (near the new Convention Center expansion). But don’t let any of this stop you. You must eat here if you truly love food!
Since I wrote the above review, the chef, the miraculous Danielle Custer left. The restaurant has turned into a standard hotel restaurant with little or none of the inventiveness that Custer brought to it.
I’m pleased to say that Danielle Custer is now the General Manager of the Seattle Art Museum’s Bon Appetit Café.
