“A Sunday well spent brings a week of content” Whoever said this, gets my respect automatically.
My favorite meal is brunch on Sundays. Not Saturday, not holiday brunch. It must be Sunday brunch. My work starts Monday so Sunday is the day I recharge and rejuvenate my body and soul so that I can tackle my insane work week until next Friday evening. Rejuvenating my body and soul starts with satisfying my tummy. When I am done with that task, my Sunday is 80% complete. Therefore, choosing where and what to eat on Sundays is super critical. Since last Thursday, I had been thinking about spending my couple of hours of Sunday morning, at Sitka & Spruce.
Sitka & Spruce is one of 5-Matt Dillon’s restaurants, located in Capitol Hill in Seattle. Melrose Market is combination of restaurant, bar, butcher, furniture store, general store, cheese shop, clothing store, deli, shellfish restaurant/shop, it’s a mini version of Chelsea Market in New York City. Sitka & Spruce is located inside of this old building that they didn’t tear down. The space has floor to ceiling windows and concrete floor, it reminds me of old and spacious loft. We were lucky to be seated at bar by the window. Bloody Mary, homemade pickles, bread and butter, hot rye porridge, granola, cultured cream & marjoram, baked eggs with smoked brisket, beer braised cabbage & harissa. I was already giddy being inside of that restaurant anyway and I was overjoyed by looking at the menu. What Archie and I ate was ridiculous. If I can show you what happiness looks like, this would be one of them.
My stomach is warm and satisfied. Now I look forward to welcoming my new week. Have a great rest of Sunday, everyone.
