Red Cow

French in The CD, Madrona & Madison Park

Welcome to a new endeavor from lauded Seattle chef Ethan Stowell who normally specializes in Italian fare, but for this venture has crossed the Alps into France. The decor is typical Stowell – open kitchen, intimate interior and clean-lined minimalist design – while the menu star is steak (seven different cuts), frites and garlic aioli.

On other plates, the food doesn’t stray too far from France. Bank on lamb terrine, vol-au-vents and moules-frites (mussels and fries).
