Proper Caesar Salad in Seattle


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a Seattle restaurant besides El Gaucho that makes a real (coddled egg, anchovies, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon) Caesar salad? I'm tired of those pre-made, goopy dressing, "Caesar's" most restaurants serve.

No, I don't, but I sure wish I did! My very first Caesar salad was in Mexico City in 1970. It was made and served tableside. I've found, with very few exceptions, that the only way to get it right is to make it myself. Once, several decades ago (probably :biggrin: ), I had a perfect Caesar salad at Belltown Billiards. I just checked, and they still have it on their menu. I won't guarantee it's what you're looking for, though.

Thanks for the suggestion. I make a great one, but was hoping to go out for a celebratory lunch. I'm a little on the fence about BB. Seems too good to be true that they'd make a better than decent caesar.
