Located in the heart of the Belltown neighborhood, Currant Bistro is flooded with natural light and friendly brunch goers during the morning. Catch breakfast from 7 – 11am. Be sure to snag a seat during this window as the kitchen shuts down mid-day until dinner.

The bistro is located inside The Sound Hotel. It’s a modern, urban and intrinsically Seattle stay.

The dinner at the hotel boasts fresh local seafood and homemade pasta dishes as stunning choices on the dinner Springtime menu.

The house-made ravioli features seasonal filling, fresh egg pasta, brown butter, sage, hazelnut, and parmesan. Its thin, fresh, boiled until al – dente.

The rest of some of the spring dinner items are just as well cared for as the ravioli. For example, the other handmade pasta – vegan gnocchi with smoked shiitake mushrooms. The cashew cream based sauce is just as flavor packed as any dairy based cream sauce.

The appetizers are mostly veggie – focused and pack serious flavor. This broccolini is not playing. With a mountain of finely shaved parmesan on the top, and the seared texture of the veggie, it’s almost a dessert. You can’t go wrong.

Don’t forget to pair your seafood with white wine and grab a glass of red for the pasta. The pan seared Atlantic salmon with brown butter fingerling potatoes, seasonal sautéed vegetables, beurre blanc has no rival. It’s a truly PNW Seattle dish and cannot be passed up. Grab one for the table and split if you’d like to experience the whole menu.

You can even toast with Prosecco as you enjoy your appetizers or are waiting for them to arrive. Another option is to cheers with a few fun cocktails post – dinner. The classic martini and gin fizz are top notch. There’s also a fabulous bourbon – based nightcap with notes of maple.
