Bastille Café & Bar
Bastille is the quintessential Ballard utility move. Its well-designed dining room and swanky bistro feel makes it perfect for a candlelit date, group dinner around the indoor firepit, birthday, or a casual weeknight solo meal at the bar. Everything on the menu is great, but the steak frites is one of the best plates of meat-and-potatoes in the city, and the bahn mi (with housemade lemongrass sausage and sriracha aioli) will make you wish French restaurants always had some Vietnamese stuff on the menu.
