Gainsbourg Seattle – Parisian bar meets Seattle

"Gainsbourg" in Greenwood, Seattle is a hip spot with delicious French food for an incredible price. The whole place is like a living work of art...

If you find yourself craving delicious French food for an incredible price served in a dimly lit but impeccably decorated location, Gainsbourg in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle is the place for you.

Named after the ‘60s French singer Serge Gainsbourg, this European-style bar is ideal for late dinners (their kitchen is open until 10pm) and many glasses of high quality house wine. From mouth-watering entrees like duck confit and steak frites to the best French dip in North Seattle, I always leave full and happy.

If your stomach doesn’t have room for a full meal, Gainsbourg’s appetizers are a worthy alternative, with cheese plates, charcuterie boards, escargot and the classiest poutine I’ve stumbled upon.

A silent film is often projected on the back wall; exposed brick is illuminated by soft candle light and the bathroom decor is simply something out of Twin Peaks. Dine at Gainsbourg to be part of a living work of art.
