Hello! I'm Myrissa Yamashiro and my blog is Almost Fit ti Eat which encompasses fitness and food - both of which I love. In my world, both (good) food and fitness exists.

Seattle's first Mystery Meet was held at Luc Restuarant. It's a place I've never been before and since I just recently cooked at its parent restaurant, Rovers (yes, I actually cooked at a restaurant) I thought it would be fun to see this place in action. There were ten of us at this Mystery Meet. With the exception of one of us, we were all first time diners at Luc.

First Course: smoked trout salad, frisee, argula, blood orage creme fraiche OR french onion soup OR warm spinach salad, lentils, roast chicken, fried capers, green goddess dressing. The salads were fresh, very flavorful. Diners described the salad portions as generous. The soup had a good amount of cheese making this classic soup delicious.

Second Course: grilled beef onglet steak, infused peppercorn sauce, fries OR steamed clams and mussels, tomato saffron broth, grilled calamari OR chick pea, picholine olive tagine, saffron cous cous, m'hamsa, fall salad, preserved plum. The seafood broth was talked about throughout the course. No one finished their fries - the portion was more than generous.

Third Course: classic creme caramel, orange sable cookie OR almond cake, apple butter, candied almond OR chococlate carable cake, whipped cream. Sweet endings to a fantastic dinner. Everyone loved their desserts.

We all had plenty of time to mingle and I met everyone at the table. There was interesting conversation throughout the evening with a chemist, real estate agent, student, operations managers, florists, fitness instructor, photographer, investigative reporter and me the blogger all at the dinner table.

Thank you to all that attended our Mystery Meet dinner. A special thank you to Luc Restaurant and Chef Thierry for taking the time to chat with us. We had a fantastic dinner.
