Seattle Times Food Critic divulges her 10 favorite new restaurants

Providence Cicero is always hungry for something new. And she’s found a crop of new resaurants well worth your dining dollars. MOST PEOPLE go out to eat in search of something specific. They’re in the mood for a burger or sushi or steak; they want pizza, falafel or pho. They gravitate toward the tried and true. But a restaurant critic is always hungry for something new…BLUEACRE SEAFOOD– Why I love it: Kevin and Teresa Davis (Steelhead Diner) conceived a thoroughly modern downtown fish house that merges class and sass. They stick to U.S. waters, sourcing responsibly caught or sustainably raised seafood, but the kitchen’s inspiration is unfettered by boundaries. What surprised me: Cancha and choclo, two kinds of large-kernel Andean corn, garnishing tiradito, a Peruvian-style ceviche sauced with sunny, spicy aji amarillo. VIEW ONLINE >

Seattle’s Best Meals of 2010

…Of everything I’ve done in the past 350-odd days—of all the meals I’ve eaten and the rooms that have welcomed me in from the rain—these are the best: Blueacre Seafood, September 1 – “Potatoes Minneapolis,” repeats my server. “That’s shredded potatoes, mixed with a little bacon fat and bacon, then fried”—he does a thing with his hands, holding one out, palm up, laying the other on top, and flipping them over—”and turned over so it’s crispy on the outside and soft inside. Kind of like a giant order of hash browns.” I purse my lips and nod as though considering—as though any consideration had been necessary after he’d mentioned potatoes with bacon fat.

Blueacre Seafood – Perfection on a plate (part 1 & 2)
Opening a restaurant is an act of defiance. Just about everyone’s advice has to be ignored and you have to have the confidence to soldier through permitting, build out, hiring, menu creation and on and on. And that’s before you even open. So it’s especially wonderful to see what Chef Kevin and Terresa Davis are doing at Blueacre. If you watch them work, you understand how serious they are about every detail. Okay isn’t good enough. They execute at a very high level in every area: food, service, atmosphere, presentation. VIEW PART 1 > | VIEW PART 2 >

Blueacre offers an ocean of good seafood dishes at varying price points
…Sure you can splurge on steamed lobster, Dungeness or king crab, but the average office worker or condo-dweller can order a bowl of chowder or gumbo for under $10, or eat “a nice piece of fish and some vegetables” at lunch for less than $20. VIEW ONLINE >

Happy Hour: Blueacre Seafood’s bar food is quite the catch
From across the bar, they looked like deviled eggs. They were potato skins, actually sort of a play on both, from the clever folks behind the new Blueacre Seafood. Nothing fancy or revelatory. But they were some of the best bar food I’ve tasted this year. VIEW ONLINE >
