5 Delicious Rhubarb Dishes in Seattle

By Leslie Kelly
April 1, 2014

You know Spring is in full swing in Seattle when colorful rhubarb creations begin showing up in pastry cases, ice cream bowls and even in cocktails. Here are five sweet rhubarb treats we'll be digging into in the coming weeks.

Honore Bakery does a genius job of focusing on seasonal fruit. This time of year, we love the Danish, cradling tart chunks of ruby red rhubarb and a bit of cream cheese to mellow its sharpness. 1413 NW 70th St.; 206-706-4035

Molly Moon's rhubarb-vanilla sorbet has the consistency of a soft-serve: super creamy, yet light and refreshing. Make it a sundae by piling some berries on top.1622 1/2 N. 45th St.; 206-547-5105 and other locations

Tallulah's is featuring a rhubarb shortcake: a compote of chopped stalk layered in between a tender, crumbly cake that absorbs the sweet sauce. A dollop of whipped cream finishes it off. 550 19th Ave. E.; 206-860-0077

mkt. is now serving an individual-sized gemlike rhubarb tart, nestling glazed half-moons of rhubarb into a delicate, buttery crust. The kitchen finishes it off with a gentle scoop of pistachio gelato. 2108 N. 55th St.; 206-812-1580

Westward's bar crew is constantly creating infusions, tinctures and magical potions, but its recent rhubarb liqueur might be its greatest hit yet. The stalks are steeped in vodka along with some vanilla beans. A dash of the finished product turns a flute of Prosecco into something spectacular. 2501 N. Northlake Way; 206-552-8215
