Situated in Capitol Hill on the corner of Union Street and 11th avenue, Bar Melusine is a lovely place which benefits of light coming through its large windows. Everything in the decor is rather white with some green details – the green and white floor tiles looks beautiful. In short: I really like the atmosphere of the newest of Renee Erickson‘s Restaurants (The Whale Wins, Bateau, General Porpoise, The Walrus and the carpenter…).
In terms of food, the menu is mostly composed of (very) small plates, of seafood that are meant to be shared.
Each dish we ordered was good but none were particularly exceptional or memorable. I only remember a series of small plates. May be our expectations were too high due to it being a Renee Erickson’s restaurants. But we will be going back to try new things.
