La Medusa

La Medusa
4857 Rainier Avenue S
Seattle, WA 98118

A few weeks ago we visited La Medusa restaurant in the Columbia City area of Seattle. I had heard great things about this small popular restaurant serving food from Sicily and borrowing from other Italian regions. We were floored by the whole experience. The food, service and casual ambience were great. Upon arriving home that evening, we logged on to and made reservations for the next Saturday we would be in town. Our second visit was just as great. With foods like thin crust pizza with fresh figs, sheep's milk ricotta, fennel and Parmigiano shavings or the Kurobuta braised country pork ribs with tomato jam, fennel, fava bean and Greek yogurt, it is hard to go wrong. Start of with an assortment of meats from Armandino's Salumi (Mario Batali's family) or some great baccala salt cod fritters with tasty tomato sauce, and you are off and running to gourmet heaven. Three cheers to chef Earl Hook!
