Recently I spent the afternoon enjoying happy hour at 190 Sunset located in Edmonds. When you first arrive you enter into the Cascadia Art Museum and see a long corridor. The restaurant is located between Brigid’s Bottleshop and  Scratch distillery. As you enter the restaurant, you first walk past the kitchen then into the dining and bar area. It felt very relaxed while still feeling modern. According to their website the atmosphere is “urban and casual“.

I visited in the early afternoon around 4:00PM on a Monday. We sat up at a higher table in the bar. There were about 5 people there when we arrived. I went with two others and we decided on ordering a few small plates, a couple drinks and dessert, of course. We ordered the pork and fish tacos, lobster macaroni & cheese, BBQ shrimp, green salad, and the chocolate hazelnut mousse cake.  All of the food we ordered came out fast. My favorite was the BBQ shrimp. The grits were cooked perfectly. Also, if you go you MUST get the chocolate hazelnut mousse cake. The two sitting closest to us, asked us what it was and we insisted they order one. They ordered it and said it was to die for.  I ordered one of their signature drinks the Sparkling Nightshade. I planned on trying their Violet Hour Cosmopolitan afterwards, but Sparkling Nightshade was so good, I stuck with it.

Halibut Tacos. The mango-pineapple habanero pico was

BBQ Shrimp. With creole seasoning & country boy IPA over four cheese grits. My favorite!!!

190 Sunset House Salad

Pork Tacos. Served with tomatillo chimichurri pico de gallo.

Sparkling Nightshade. Sparkling brut, fresh lemon juice & parfait amour.

Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse Cake. This had espresso meringues and salted caramel, YUM!

They have a very large, inviting outdoor space, some tables even had fireplaces. Which I love, because I am ALWAYS cold. The outdoor area will be perfect for spending summer afternoons and evenings with friends. The space outside can accommodate up 75 guests and would be an ideal location for hosting an event.

I think my favorite part of this pace was the atmosphere. It felt very cool & calm. One of their signature drinks is named the Netflix & Chill.  On my next visit, I plan to go on a Friday night for dinner and try the Pan Seared Alaskan Halibut.  I highly recommend giving this place a try. If you do, please let me know what you thought! I also will be trying Brigid’s Bottleshop, which serves specialty beers so stay tuned…
