Be sure to read Seattle Times restaurant critic Providence Cicero’s review of Altura, the new Capitol Hill restaurant that stood atop my fall newbie list and has rocketed to the top of the star-power firmament, thanks to chef/owner Nathan Lockwood, his wife Rebecca and their stellar crew.
Open only two months, this casual 36-seat seductress has it going on on every level: food, service, ambiance, wine list — the works. After my first meal here, I made sure to plan ahead and reserve for my next. I can’t wait.
