Restaurant Zoe is Mr. Monkey's favorite restaurant in Seattle to date. I really love it, too, but I'm less prone to declaring favorites.
Restaurant Zoe is warm, modern, and sleekly understated. The service is wonderfully personable without being obsequious. You get a fabulous vibe as soon as you step foot into the restaurant.
Minty Lime Press -- fresh mint, lime sour, soda and 7 ($3.75). Clear Conscience -- non-alcoholic and slightly savory fresh citrus, cucumber and soda, shaken ($3.75).
Restaurant Zoe will delight you, even if you're not big on alcohol. Great care and creativity infuses all beverages.
Fresh ricotta gnudi, golden raisin puree, picholine olives, almonds, curry oil ($9.75).
Dreamy, creamy, cheesy ricotta gnocchi swathed in rich savory and slightly sweet sauce. Bouncy balls of bliss.

Like it was fresh from the garden and then blanketed with beautiful cured ham.
The Whole Hog -- roasted peach, endive, pistachios, lovage ($23.50).
A pretty patty of pork that will make you applaud. Golden and fried on the outside. Juicy and tender on the outside. Full of flavor. Full of awesome.
Spicy wild boar bolognese, arugula pappardelle, chili flakes, shaved Parmesan ($10.00).
Piquant piggy pasta at its peak! Superb meaty sauce. Superb fresh pasta.
