My thoughts on the Atlanta food scene, with occasional forays into the world beyond. We talk about both restaurant reviews and recipes.

Seattle; Duke's Chowder House
Keith and Amy took me directly from the airport to Southcenter Mall. Since I had to eat my quota of salmon during my trip, we went to Duke's. The atmosphere is upscale casual with enough TVs to provide entertainment but not so many as to overwhelm the dinner.
This is my wild salmon with sweet, slightly tangy sauce. One of the joys of traveling to the Pacific Northwest is the abundance of wild salmon, which has a much richer flavor than the cultivated variety. My natural tendency would be to a less sweet sauce, but I enjoyed this one. It gave just enough sweetness to complement the salmon without overpowering it. Keith loved his halibut, which he let me sample.
