Seattle – Altura

My parents were in town for some good food and wine touring. I had been talking up Altura since K and I went almost a year ago and I’d say it lived up to their expectations. My dad said he liked it better than EMP although when pressed why, his answer flabbergasted my mom and me. The menu was familiar but different enough to not feel like a repeat. My dad and I got the additional pasta carbonara with truffles shaved on top which was very good but not my favorite dish of the night, the scallop and risotto were.
