Puget Sound Bite: Westward & Little Gull Grocery

I first checked out Westward late this summer when the weather was still nice enough to take advantage of the restaurant's amazing outdoor seating.  In addition to the fabulous adirondack happy hour chairs, there are communal-style tables to enjoy a bigger meal, all while taking in the view of Lake Union.
The Alaskan spot prawns were fresh and tasted of the sea.  A little squirt of lemon juice was all they needed.  We enjoyed our oysters as well.
I love a good watermelon salad but I can't bring myself to like fried haloumi, no matter how many times I try.  I find the texture far too rubbery, so I would have preferred the salad with feta cheese or something with a more crumbly texture.  The pistachios were a great addition to the salad however, and this was a nice dish to say goodbye to summer.
I can always appreciate a good lox dish and this one was no exception. The salmon was cured very nicely.  The creamy labneh and crispy toasts provided nice texture contrast.
I definitely enjoyed the dishes I had at Westward, however I think the selling point of this restaurant is the location.  As soon as the temperature hits 60, I'll be bringing out-of-town friends to grab a drink on the sun-filled patio.
