Pacific Northwest, Seafood
Price Scale

This seafood cove in the former St. Jack space gets its name—and aesthetic inspiration—from Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic. At the driftwood-clad bar, beneath a painted portrait of Bill Murray, one can slurp down $1 happy hour oysters accessorized with house tarragon vinegar, jalapeño hot sauce, and red tabasco. Hyper-seasonal is the mode: morels, pea jus, sea bans, and a spruce tip focaccia, topped with house burrata and mushroom conserva. Whole roasted trout to cioppino fisherman's stew are crowd favorites, while crudo shows off the kitchen's creativity, with a shrimp ceviche popping with green strawberries and fresno chiles, or yellowtail with salted kohlrabi. It goes down smooth with a small, carefully curated wine list and stellar but potent cocktails—just the way Zissou's sailors prefer it.
