After work tonight, I ran up to Mt. Adams to check out a new restaurant, Sprout Market & Eatery.
I was taking photos for a story that will run Tuesday, but I decided to sit at the bar and eat some food.
And I’m so glad I did.
The menu focuses on fresh, seasonal and local ingredients, and everything is house-made. Even the items in the market are locally sourced and/or organic.
I ordered the turkey sandwich, which is made on 16 Bricks bread. The turkey is wrapped around a sage and thyme pesto, and topped with mixed greens, tomato and a house-made mayo. It’s served alongside Hen of the Woods chips.
Definitely what I needed after a week of frozen pizza and dinosaur nuggets.
Might I add, Mt. Adams is one of the cutest neighborhoods I’ve ever been to. It’s super hilly but very ped-friendly. The central business district is packed with restaurants and bars, even a no-gas UDF. There’s also a monastery and tons of cute, colored houses and little brick condos.
If I didn’t already have a home, I would want to live there.
Mt. Adams has some amazing views of the city—I’ll definitely be going back to snap some pics when it’s not dark.
