We were given a Xmas gift certificate to Phoenecia and decided to celebrate our anniversary here. Arriving on a cold, wet, dark evening, we were immediately greeted and seated by Sonya. She was attentive and friendly all night, suggesting menu items she thought we would enjoy. The main specialities for the evening are written on a wall-size chalkboard, besides the main menu items available all the time - small plates, salads, pizzas and desserts. They only serve beer and wine and the choices are many. Unfortunately for us, the main protein offered that particular evening was lamb, which neither of us eat. We ordered half a dozen small plates including '39 Spice Beef', Trio of Spreads, flatiron steak, caprese salad, Charcuterie and Cheese Plates. My husband was eyeing the special of farfalle/lamb and asked if he could substitute chicken. The chef was very accommodating and created a dish for him using chicken in a cream/sherry/tarragon sauce. SO good! The attention to detail on each dish was an art - beautifully presented. The only dish we didn't care for was the Flatiron steak - too rare and chewy for our taste, yet still flavorful. Menu is on the pricey end and we quickly used the $100 G.C. Another highlight was on Tuesdays they give 10% of all proceeds to the charity of the month - give and give-back. Nice! Plus, they also have take-out and catering. Would we be back - probably if we were in the area, but it is a long way from south Bellevue during rush hour and pouring rain with construction going on. It does seem to cater to a younger population - 20 to 40's - which benefits the local area greatly.
