If you’re trying to have a big night in, there are only so many weekends you can slap a wheel of brie on a wooden plank and watch Frances Ha before things get old. But 84 Yesler in Pioneer Square got us in the special occasion spirit again. From the nutty parmesan churros and fresh carrot cavatelli with goat cheese to some of the best steak in the city, all of the excellent food was packaged so carefully that it’s easy to forget for a moment that you’re not sitting at a table inside a restaurant.
