Seattle’s Cutters Crabhouse, where food lovers come for the crab and stay for the view, announces the reopening of its restaurant after an extensive two-month renovation.
The restaurant's creative kitchen team is led by Chef Simon Zatyrka, whose food philosophy of vibrant color and bold flavors compliments his use of "everything snout to tail"—from Hamachi skin cracklings to stuffed Dungeness crab stuffed scampi.
"Cutters Crabhouse is prominent in its innovative spirit and absolute commitment to premier customer service,” says Chris Harter, president and CEO of Restaurants Unlimited. “The chef’s enthusiasm for fresh, colorful, and healthy dishes is the focus, and the stunning simplicity of the modern remodel is the perfect backdrop. The staff here is passionate and ready to welcome guests to the newly remodeled Cutters Crabhouse."
Guests at Cutters find the preparations of lobster and crab gnocchi, steamed Dungeness crab with risotto, and established favorites such as smoked salmon chowder and tempura Beecher's cheese curds. A Seattle sunset compliments dessert options including apple cobbler with gelato or the chocolate soufflé.
Cutters Crabhouse offers a raw bar with oysters and fresh sushi as well as the prominent views of Seattle's Elliot Bay and Olympic mountains—all adjacent to Seattle's famous Pike Place Market.
The restaurant maintains a relationship with many of the Market vendors, and regularly features items sourced directly, including Uli's Sausage, Beecher's cheese curds, Mike's Pepper Jelly, and special selections from City Fish.
As part of its ongoing support of local purveyors and the Market as a whole, Cutters Crabhouse is set to debut its new event space by hosting the annual invitation-only Pike Place Market Foundation's "Cut the Pie" on April 17.
The new interior reflects modern yet classically designed details including fish murals by local Breeze Block Gallery, deep-sea diving signs, and an open kitchen. Cutters' newly designed bar offers extraordinary signature drink selections utilizing chef-inspired elixirs and syrups.
Happy hour drink specials are available along with a bar menu. While there, view the new private dining room with an elevated, soundproof space, ideal for business meetings and special celebrations.
