Food From Down South

A big gap in the Seattle culinary scene is the lack of southern food. Luckily Communion, one of the few options in this regard, is great.

The restaurant is located in the Central District, "and was once the center of Seattle's black community and a major hub of African-American businesses."

I was really feeling this place so I even ordered something fancy off of the cocktail menu.

"Cherie Amour

a smokey play on a Hemingway daiquiri this cocktail features mezcal and a house-made grapefruit shrub w/ maraschino liquor, a Mexican pomegranate and a herbsaint rinse "

"Bayou Teche (Limited Quantity)
Deep fried breaded eggplant, a luxurious Dungeness crab gravy, topped with buttered poached prawns, sauteed Swiss chard. Inspiration: Chef Paul Prudhomme! This is a true Cajun dish"

"Classic buttery cornbread served in a mini cast iron."

"Bread Pudding

Warm spiced bread pudding with a house caramel sauce topped with Chantilly"

We had our eye on some banana pudding being carried around in big mason jars but they were sold out by the time we got to dessert. Sad but that just means we'll have to come back!

Nothing helps with digestion like some mini golf.
