Seattle: Athenian Inn

One of the many ways one can enjoy the Pike Place Market is at its many restaurants. Keith wanted to eat somewhere we could sit down, so we chose the Athenian. It's clearly very old and well established. It's also quite large. We ended up at the counter but they also have quite a few tables. The service was very prompt and courteous.

I ordered the salmon sauté while Keith had the flounder. My saute was wonderful. The fish was sauteed along with green and red peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions. The salmon was rich with salmon flavor and perfectly cooked. Keith's flounder came with a light apricot sauce that set off the fish very well. The gal next to us chatted for a few minutes; she said that she really enjoyed her seafood sauté with clams, prawns, salmon, and several other fish as well as the vegetables.
