If you have yet to make your mind up as to where to go for lunch today, have been planning to go to Sitka & Spruce for lunch or are a regular lunch crowd member at this Eastlake marvel here's a bit of information that is sure to help: today's lunch service at Sitka & spruce will be the last time we Sitka fans have a chance to eat our hearts out in the middle of the day.
Starting next week, Sitka & Spruce will be concentrating their efforts on dinner and weekend brunch. This is by no means a bottom line decision. Lunch is extremely popular, the restaurant is definitely in the black and the lunch service--which at most restaurants is a money losing proposition--here it is quite profitable.
Ever since opening the restaurant, Chef Mathew Dillon (who was just named one of the ten Best New Chefs by Food and Wine Magazine and featured in their annual July Chef Issue) and his fabulous staff have been burning the midnight oil, working all sorts of extravagant hours feeding the city with their amazing, locally sourced, carefully selected, deliciously prepared food.
Frankly they need a bit of a break.
So, how about dropping by today? I was there yesterday and the memory of the delicious grilled sardines and onions, pine nuts and sultanas still lingers in my mind. And even though today will be a very hectic one for me, I will definitely stop by to enjoy one more delectable meal at one of my favorite places to eat anywhere.
I will certainly miss having all those delicious lunches at Sitka & Spruce. I'll just have to make it in more often for dinner and brunch. :)
