Improvements Bring a New Impression to TASTE Restaurant at SAM

TASTE Restaurant at Seattle Art Museum (SAM) officially re-opened their doors on June 19, providing diners with many new and inviting changes including: interior improvements, a revolving quarterly art series and a fresh summer menu created by recently promoted executive chef Craig Hetherington.


INTERIOR LOOK & FEEL: The recent improvements have softened the interior, creating a warmer, less-industrial atmosphere while maintaining a modern and clean design philosophy. Caramel-colored walls, enchanting lighting fixtures and charcoal half-moon booths are some elements contributing to a new impression for TASTE Restaurant.

ART SERIES: In a partnership with SAM Gallery: Art Sales and Rental, TASTE Restaurant will introduce a quarterly art series (June 18 – Sept. 21), featuring acclaimed Seattle-born photojournalist and Magnum photographer Burt Glinn. The inaugural art show is a tribute to the late photographer, highlighting a selection of 12 black-and-white photographs capturing historical images of life in Seattle including: the Jackson Street Jazz scene, the Seattle Tubing Society, a Seattle high school football team and cheerleaders, and art stars Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick and Chuck Wein.

CHEF & MENU: New executive chef Craig Hetherington continues the efforts to support local producers/farmers and adhering to TASTE’s sustainability mission. Hetherington will introduce his summer menu on June 19. Dishes include organic braised chicken with baby beet greens, pork belly confit with Yukon-horseradish puree and pork-grapefruit gastrique; brown butter poletnta; and Pastry chef Elise Fineburg’s toasted walnut cake and cherry mint julep float.

NEW HOURS:       Tuesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–10 p.m.

Sunday 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
