How I heard of this place: I have walked by the Broadway Grill numerous times over the years, as it changed ownership and name, but had not had the opportunity to sample it until my dining companion and I walked by. Among the various eateries on Broadway that we could have selected, this was the one that was most enticing, as it has large, warehouse style windows that open up onto the patio for those warm Seattle summer evenings.
Type of cuisine: Northwest, American, simple and tasty.
Ambiance: Open, spacious seating outdoors and in the space directly indoors. The indoor seating along the front gives the diner the opportunity to feel like one is enjoying a meal outside when the garage-door windows are open to the fresh air. The back of the restaurant also hosts a large seating area for bigger parties and more privacy from passerby.
What I ordered: I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich ($11), placed on a small baguette with caramelized onions, soft brie cheese and a light, but flavorful dressing. Alongside, I substituted the herbed garlic fries (thick-cut and very well-seasoned) for the gorgonzola fries (same jo jo’s doused in a creamy gorgonzola sauce). My dining companion selected the turkey burger ($13) with a Greek flair. The patty of ground turkey included a plethora of herbs and set in a square-shaped ciabatta roll with mixed greens and a light, Greek inspired sauce. Served on the side were the herbed garlic fries. We passed up any appetizers in order to enjoy the cast iron skillet chocolate chip cookie sundae ($6); a hot, thick, doughy chocolate chip cookie, about five inches in diameter was baked to gooey perfection and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
What I loved: The sandwiches both had good flavor. The turkey burger being the favorite of my dining companion…between the two entrees. Once dessert appeared, however, the story changed. We were both blown away by the piping hot, ooey, gooey, cookie doughy delicacy.
Why I loved it: The space was perfect for a late summer lunch, the service friendly and the staff entertaining. The portions of food, while smaller than many establishments, gave for a great lunch with no leftovers. And the cookie, well, that deserves a return trip!
Cost: Average ($10-$15 for lunch-sized entrees)
