The Distinguished RN74

I recently had the pleasure of shooting a few dishes for RN74, chef Michael Mina's Seattle urban wine bar and restaurant (he now has 21 restaurants nationwide), specializing in refined American and regional French dishes. The decor is very distinguished and upscale, and the wine selection is superb.

RN74 is aptly named after the highway that meanders through the beautiful Burgundy wine region (Route Nationale 74). I had the pleasure of tasting several of the dishes that I shot, as well as meeting the chefs. I can wholeheartedly recommend the beet salad, salmon, duck breast, crème brûlée, and caramel popcorn.

Here are a few select photos I took of the restaurant and the food.

RN74 is located in the heart of downtown Seattle on Fourth Avenue

  1. What gorgeous pictures and the food looks amazing. Although I do prefer a traditional Pavlova, so I probably wouldn't order it. Must put restaurant on my list to visit.
