Overview

Ethan Stowell's (How to Cook A Wolf, Bar Cotto, Anchovies & Olives, etc.) tiny wood-walled alcove serves American food with a Northwest focus in Seattle's historic Keystone building. The intimate, locally-recognized restaurant gets its name from the original name of the neighborhood, Meridian, shining in simplicity with the likes of grilled and marinated green beans in sea salt and lemon or in more unexpected pairings like refreshing Hamachi ceviche with citrus-cucumber ice.
