Food & Beverage
Seafood is important to us. We are fortunate in Seattle to have a catch revered worldwide. This includes Penn Cove Mussels and Clams, Quillayute River King Salmon, Lummi Island Sea Urchin, Kushi and Kumomoto Oysters, Dungeness Crab, Alaskan Halibut and King Crab to name a few.
We work with familiar local purveyors and wholesalers, sourcing with care and attention to cultivate the relationship from fisherman to table. The Northwest is also abundant with richer and bolder ingredients such as meat and game. We are fortunate to source from remarkable independent, organic, and sustainable farms we consider partners.
A noteworthy selection of new and old-world wines pair with 84 Yesler’s Executive Chef Shawn Applin’s highly seasonal seafood, meat and pasta menus. Our kitchen team makes fresh, handmade pasta in house daily.
Whether you are enjoying sea scallops or New York steak, with chef’s seasonal preparations, there are perfect pairings to complete your meal. Start with a classic Negroni Corretto from the craft cocktail list and get ready for an extraordinary experience!
