Madrona has a new restaurant….or I guess two new restaurants coming to the neighborhood. Ethan Stowell has announced through his Seattle restaurant blog that he is opening two restaurants where Restaurant Bea used to be located: Red Cow and Noyer. Red Cow will be located in the main restaurant and seat 55 people (35 in dining room, 20 in the bar) and Noyer will sit only 4 tables and will be located off the back courtyard, presumably where Restaurant Bea had its banquet room.
This is how Ethan Stowell blog has described his two new Madrona restaurants starting with Red Cow:
First, say hello to Red Cow. Red Cow is going to be a brasserie primarily known for steak frites—really good steak frites. We are going to flesh out the rest of the menu with a wide variety of classic bistro fare using Pacific Northwest ingredients and pair it all with a rigorous wine offering.
And Noyer is described as:
Imagine a lush, intimate, multi-course dinner with paired wines along the way. A very high-end, leisurely affair that you can enjoy at your own pace. When you reserve a table at Noyer, it’s your table for the night. Tell us when you plan to arrive and we’ll meet you in the courtyard with something bubbly. You will be taken care of. You will indulge. You will leave happy. This is something new for Seattle—and us. We are very excited about Noyer.
For those you who are not familiar with Ethan Stowell. Ethan grew up in Seattle before becoming a very successful chef and restaurateur that has been recognized by Food & Wine, Seattle Metropolitan, Seattle Magazine and Seattle Post-Intelligencer as well as others. While all of his restaurant’s menus vary, they are all known for keeping it simple and using fresh ingredients. Ethan restaurants include Queen Anne’s How to Cook a Wolf, Ballard’s Staple & Fancy, Belltown’s Tavolata, as well as Capitol Hill’s Anchovies & Olives, Rione XIII, and Bar Cotto.
We look forward to these two great additions to our Madrona neighborhood. Look for Red Cow restaurant to open after the new year and Noyer to open in the spring. Welcome Ethan and company to Madrona!
