Seattle’s Cutters Crabhouse, Reimagined

SEATTLE, WA — Cutter’s Bayhouse, a landmark restaurant adjacent to Pike Place Market since 1983, reopened on April 11th as Cutter’s Crabhouse, a reinvented crabhouse. Having undergone significant renovations during their two month remodel, the interior is simplistic and modern. The restaurant feels open and spacious, with large glass windows overlooking Elliot Bay. The menu has been completely updated with sushi, elegant crab and seafood dishes, delectable desserts, and an etensively delicious cocktail menu.

I had the pleasure of dining in the private room on a sunny Seattle afternoon. The view was magnificent and the service was excellent. The food was thoughtfully plated and the drinks were beautifully presented. It’s apparent that Cutter’s takes pride in offering the best dining experience for their customers.

The selection of sushi offerings sampled were fresh and well-prepared. The Fried Beecher’s Cheese Curds and Baked Oyster appetizers were favorites at the table. The Baked Oysters were plump and topped with a crunchy, flavorful breading. Chowder isn’t hard to find in Seattle; unique chowder is more difficult to come by. The Smoked Salmon Chowder was just the right balance of smoky and creamy with substantial chunks of seafood. The Crab on Crab dish — Crab leg served on a crab cake is a must-try item.
Save room for dessert because they are definitely worth ordering at Cutter’s. The layered Chocolate and Caramel Mousse was light and fluffy, but still silky smooth and creamy. The Apple Cobbler, served warm with a crumble topping and caramel ice cream, as well as the signature Creme Brulee, should not be missed.
