Modern American

Overview

Since 1999, Nell’s has served relaxed, refined American cuisine with European influence in a sunny, yellow dining room situated in Seattle's Greenlake neighborhood. Named after chef Philip Mihalski’s wife, the a la carte items and tasting menu are inspired by local, seasonal, Northwest ingredients, while their beloved sweet onion tart with Jerusalem artichokes and hazelnut butter is always on the menu.
