I serendipitously stumbled upon List in Belltown while looking for a dinner restaurant near the Ride the Holiday Ducks tour. Immediately I liked that there was an all-day food & drink Sunday happy hour. And I loved the $14 bottle of red wine happy hour special. So after the tour, my hubby and I treated ourselves to a lovely dinner, drinks and dessert for an excellent date night.
We both started with Old Fashioned drinks and the burger & fries plates. The fries were steak cut and good! Made even better with some truffle aioli. The burger left a lot to be desired; for instance, cheese would've been a yummy addition. Bun was from Macrina Bakery, and though I usually love Macrina the bread would've complemented the burger substantially more if it was toasted or grilled. The beef patty was fresh but pretty bland and the veggies were almost nonexistent (one very tiny tomato slice and a couple of small pickled onions).
After the burgers & fries, we decided we were still a wee bit hungry so we split an eggplant parmesan dish. When it was set in front of us, we were both pleasantly surprised by what we saw. It was literally a hunk of eggplant smothered in mozzarella (not parmesan which was odd) that sat on a plate of delicious tomato vodka-like sauce.
As with every satisfying meal, we had to end with dessert and split the chocolate cake with hazelnut ice cream. Every bite was drool-worthy, especially when paired with a glass of cab-sangiovese-merlot (worth mentioning again that we got the whole bottle for $14, yeah!).
Stop by next time you're in Belltown, especially if it's a Sunday.
