On our way back from a long bike ride (we are kicking off training for the STP this year), Kat and I were looking for a good place to grab some brunch. Seattle Magazine had just done a round-up of best breakfast spots and mentioned brunch at The Corson Building. We have been meaning to go there so it seems like a great idea.
Their format is a bit different from normal- its tiny inside, and its prix-fixe, with a buffet with a bunch of miscellaneous stuff and a choice from two hot entrees. We enjoyed the buffee a lot- a citrus salad with orange, grapefruit and blood-orange, a great beet salad, some radicchio, home-made yogurt with some great jam and nuts to mix in, and a couple of other things. We got both entrees, a quiche with pork belly (bacon!) and sturgeon. Everything was great, and the overall experience was a really nice departure from the standard brunch experience all over town. At $23 its not inexpensive and I’m sure that will deter many people, but for a special experience with top local ingredients, its well worth it.
