425 NW Market Street
Seattle, WA 98107
CLOSED - Sambar, as well as Le Gourmand, closed a couple of years ago when the owners decided to retire from the restaurant business.
Le Gourmand has been a culinary standard in the Ballard suburb of Seattle since 1985. A few years ago they expanded by opening up a small bar, and by small, we mean tiny. The bar itself has room for perhaps only four people, with about a half dozen tables on the floor.
All of which means it can sometimes be difficult to find room, so be prepared. Once you are in however, be prepared to enjoy some finely crafted cocktais using often slightly esoteric ingredients.
