Local restaurateur, Ethan Stowell's (How to Cook A Wolf, Bar Cotto, Anchovies & Olives, etc.) Ballard eatery, Staple & Fancy, serves rustic Italian dishes in the a la carte menu and seasonal offerings in a four-course tasting menu. Situated downstairs from the Walrus and the Carpenter, look for the word "cigar" scrawled across a brick wall, as plates like escolar crudo with fiddleheads, apple and fennel pour out from the kitchen.
