Single Shot is an intimate neighborhood restaurant and bar in Capitol Hill, Seattle. The menu at this cozy spot changes seasonally and features elevated Pacific Northwest cuisine. Excitingly, Single Shot is celebrating its 10-year anniversary next year, and the food is as good as ever.
Single Shot truly feels like a hidden gem, as it is tucked away in a quieter area of the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. The vibe of the restaurant is chic and romantic, featuring neutral hues, dimmed lighting and stylish décor. As you walk in, cozy booths line the left the side of the space, with a beautifully designed marble-top bar occupying the right side.
The executive chef at Single Shot is Antonio Palma, who elevates his dishes using the French technique. Chef Palma designs his menu based on the season and the availability of ingredients within the region. “Living in the Pacific Northwest, we get to enjoy the seasonal changes, and it’s what inspires my dishes,” says Chef Palma. “I implement new produce to welcome guests to expand their palate with different and new tastes each times, knowing each dish I plate is handled with time, care, dedication and heart.”
Chef Palma’s signature dish is the agnolotti pasta, filled with black truffle, wild mushroom and ricotta cheese, and topped with sage and brown butter sauce and Calabrian chilies for a little heat. This dish is rich and decadent, and is definitely a crowd pleaser. Other favorites include the roasted beets with orange, honey yogurt, pickled mustard seeds and pistachio brittle; along with the Painted Hills NY Strip, served with fingerling potatoes, smoked pepper chimichurri and blue cheese.
Single Shot has a unique selection of craft cocktails, like Josephine’s Ghost with tequila, strega, shiso, mandarin and lime; Autumn on the Rocks with brown butter-washed bourbon, sage and bitters; and Kyoto Protocol with Japanese whisky, sake vermouth and umami bitters. It also has an impressive list of wines from around the world and offers several local beers.
Single Shot also offers a weekend brunch that features delicious dishes like salmon lox on sourdough toast, eggs benedict with crispy prosciutto, and loco moco with soy and ginger gravy. Brunch cocktails include a scratch Bloody Mary, a classic mimosa and a Dlugolecki spritz.
The restaurant is open daily from 5 to 10 p.m. for dinner, and it serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Single Shot is a 21-and-over establishment. For more information or to make a reservation, visit singleshotseattle.com.
