In March, Chef John Sundstrom, Kelly Ronan, and JM Enos welcomed guests back to Lark this year. Alongside 952 East Seneca Street in Seattle, Washington, the restaurant buzzed with excitement.

Chefs Testimonial

"When we closed the doors in March of 2020, we had no idea it would be almost two full years before we opened back up,” said John Sundstrom, chef and co/owner of Lark.

“The dining room looks gorgeous, the four-course menu is already a hit, and it feels good to be back,” said Kelly Ronan, co/owner of Lark.

“It’s wonderful to see so many familiar faces,” added JM Enos, co/owner of Lark.

The dining room has more coveted blue mohair booths, including the mezzanine with a blue mohair banquet and sheer privacy curtains reminiscent of the original dining room on 12th Avenue.

The twinkling lights still dance from the ceiling providing guests with a magical dining experience Tuesday through Saturday from 5 pm – 9 pm.

Lark has simplified things and now offers a high four-course menu that showcases Sundstrom’s signature style of using local and organic ingredients to create exceptional dishes. The current menu includes words like tuna Crudo with blood orange, squid ink spaghetti with Dungeness crab and Meyer lemon, and wild boar chops with barley and chestnuts.

Oyster Omakase experience

On Thursday, May 26, Lark will host an exceptional Oyster Omakase experience on the mezzanine overlooking the twinkling lights of the dining room.

Chef John Sundstrom will create an eight-course Oyster Omakase that sommelier Tahlia Bolden will pair with wines and cocktails.

Guests of the intimate experience will be guided through each course. And with Sundstrom sharing his inspiration and thoughts on ingredients and technique.

Dinner begins at 6 pm, and the cost is $140 per person. Seating is minimal.
