This restaurant on the upper end of Broadway serves inventive food in the style of Indian small plates, called thalis. But don’t mistake it for an Indian restaurant chef Jerry Traunfeld, formerly of the Herbfarm in Woodinville, has won a slew of awards for his interpretation of Pacific Northwest cuisine. Each entree at Poppy comes with an assortment of sides and a piece of poppy seed naan. Of the restaurant week menu, ricotta gnudi with creamed nettles and maitake mushrooms was a standout. Now is most definitely the time to give Poppy a try if you’ve been waiting—thanks to restaurant week, starters, thalis, and dessert were just $28, which is
normally the cost of thalis alone.
