When the weather cools, the days grow shorter and the summer produce disappears, it is time to cozy up to the warm environment of Marjorie!  While the bounty of the Northwest has been wholeheartedly enjoyed all summer, there is no denying, the Chefs have been anticipating the change of season with much joy.  There are many things to be grateful for…Mushrooms, Squash, Pumpkin, Persimmons, Quince…

The Chanterelle Sautee is one of those menu items that creates a “buzz”.  Were it just for the amazing local treasured Chanterelles, it would be a delightful experience.  Add to this a Gruyere Croquette, Local Huckleberry Sauce and Pickled Mustard Seed.  Slightly addictive.  Definitely awesome.

The Autumn Season has been particularly lush and bountiful.  Joseph has enjoyed creating his first few original menus with provisions from some of our favorite vendors, Local Roots, Pacific Crest Farms, Collins Family Orchards and Stokesberry Farm.

Joseph was drawn to the business at an early age.  The son of restaurateurs, Joseph often worked in his Dad’s Oregon restaurant, graduating to high profile restaurants in Seattle and Los Angeles (How to Cook a Wolf, Fig and Olive and the Hungry Cat, just to name a few) when he branched out on his own.  With an inspiring work ethic and an admirable commitment to create a unique and mouthwatering menu, Joseph is welcome addition to the Marjorie crew.  Marjorie invites you to enjoy the pleasant and palatable experience of Chef Joseph Bollag’s Autumn menu.

Summertime…And the Living is Easy!

The darling of Seattle Patios, Marjorie’s outdoor offers a chic, off the street and off the beaten path option for al fresco dining.

After a winter of closed garage doors and the heater going full blast, it is time to enjoy the beauty of Marjorie’s charming patio!  The colorful chairs, the flora and fauna, the distinct warmth…all await your arrival.

It feels magical on a summer night to enjoy Chef Dustin Calery’s menu, full of local produce, sustainably procured meats, seafood and poultry.

You had me at Craft Cocktail!

Miss Marjorie’s Steel Drum Plantains are a perfect compliment to the Marjorie Patio, a cocktail and Dustin’s fabulous menu!
