The Book Bindery: Modern American Cuisine



SEATTLE— The Book Bindery is located on the southern bank of the Ship Canal at the base of Queen Anne. The main dining room resembles a luxorious reading room with beautiful lighting and decor. One side of the restaurant provides views of the waterway and the other is book-ended by a winery. 


Chef Shaun McCraine grew up in the Pacific Northwest where he attended Seattle Central Culinary Program. He has worked in San Francisco, Paris, and New York City at Thomas Keller’s Per Se before coming to Book Bindery.

Salad of Hearts of Palm served with pluots and Mizuna leaves is a fresh showcase of seasonal produce. The Beef Tartare is executed well — prepared with a delicate and flavorful touch. The Grilled Michima Ranch “Flavor Curve,” or top part of a rib-eye, will satisfy your carnal cravings.
