There are certain things I know. Such as it is always a wonderful treat to dine at Matt’s in the Market. I know, Matt is no longer the owner. Regardless his namesake has never let me down.

But I didn’t know that Matt is back. Under a new name. In a new location. But thanks to Josh P. Dand, I gained knowledge. It only took two months plus for the birthday celebration to commence. Josh had send an email back on February 2 suggesting a celebration of sorts. Lucky it took two months to get it scheduled. Otherwise we would have been drinking a beer an Elysian.

Instead, we feasted! It was a FABULOUS feast indeed! We mixed a few glasses of red wine, with stimulating conversation and…

  • Rillettes (cured, braised pork belly terrine served with a spicy mustard and country bread)
  • Espresso rubbed beef short ribs and pickled beets (the sauce soaked up perfectly in the bread)
  • Aged manchego cheese drizzled with lavender honey and pickled raisins
Thanks, Josh P., for a fabulous surprise addition to the list of FABULOUS meals. And a deep discussion about pork products. I was just thinking it was a birthday beer – and it turned out so much more – oh, what is the F-word I am looking for to insert here? (Only thing I would change: Remove the wind and rain aren’t blowing into us as we walk down the street.)

The location:

89 University St (the Harbor Steps) | Seattle, WA 98101 | 206.623.2101 | Website
