Federal Way, WA (my hometown) finally has a unique, classy restaurant that is on par with those found in Seattle and Tacoma. Peppercorn Bistro & Bar was a pleasant surprise in a city filled with restaurants that often lack creativity. As we walked in the front door a Christmas tree filled the air with a fresh pine scent, that along with jazz music playing set the mood for an amazing Latin inspired meal. A funky beach wood wall and B&W photos of Seattle highlighted the Northwest flair of Peppercorn.
The small, but perfect menu boasted flavors for all food palates. Traditional Latin recipes were modernized and highlighted Northwest seafood. We shared:
Pasta de la Casa (pasta, salmon, artichokes, asparagus, olives in a thin cream sauce)
Gorgonzola Spinach Stuffed Pollo (served with Polenta and crisp green beans)
Mariscada (prawns, sausage, mussels in a rich tomato broth served)

We topped off our entree’s with Dash Point Margarita (peach puree, simple syrup, tequila) and a bottle of Cab Sav. Needless to say it was a great experience that we are sure to relive again soon.
