Overview

Classic brasserie fare draws crowds to Madrona neighborhood’s Red Cow. This hot spot from Ethan Stowell (How to Cook A Wolf, Bar Cotto, Anchovies & Olives, etc.) offers local shellfish and house charcuterie in a cozy, modern space. Their signature steak frites section offers seven different cuts of steak, each served with frites, garlic aioli and sauces, paired with a Pacific Northwest and French-dominant wine list.
