As an up-and-coming neighborhood, Jefferson Park is changing all the time – and Corner House, the restaurant that opened in January 2013 in the RiverClay condominiums high on a bluff overlooking downtown, has made some changes, too. The 1,250-square-foot eatery is an airy, wide-windowed space where residents can grab a bite after a trip to the fitness room, put down one last drink before heading upstairs for the night, even bum oregano when they’re making pasta. But Corner House is also a neighborhood bistro that considers the entire city its neighborhood, serving up an impressive menu from its very small kitchen. Not surprisingly, seafood is a real catch here, since James Iacino, president of Seattle Fish, is one of the founding partners – but you’ll also find a sweet, if small, lineup of salads, soups, non-fishy main courses and desserts. The weekday social hours hook in neighbors and Jeff Park visitors alike; they run from 4 to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9 p.m. until close.e would come down in their pajamas,” marvels Selby. The airy, wide-windowed restaurant has become a place for residents to grab a bite after a trip to the fitness room, to put down one last drink before heading upstairs for the night, even to bum oregano when they’re making pasta. But Corner House isn’t a cafeteria, of course. Selby spent fifteen years with Vesta Dipping Grill, Steuben’s and Ace, and the Colorado-born, self-described “ingredient dork” has higher aspirations for the first kitchen he can call his own: Corner House is designed as a neighborhood bistro that considers the entire city its neighborhood, one where you can craft a meal from small and (slightly) larger plates, including PEI mussels, chili-braised short ribs, fruit-spiked avocado salad, grilled polenta and a stunning chocolate bread pudding.
