TRAVEL AND DINING – Copperleaf Restaurant is a gem hidden in the heart of Seatac not more than a few blocks away from the airport. If you are ever in the Seatac area and are looking for a gourmet meal I'd highly recommend Cooperleaf. Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar is located in the CedarBrook Lodge (18525 36th Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98188. 206-901-9268 cedarbroklodge.com) .
We had some friends visiting for a day. They were staying out by the airport. We wanted to dine at a place higher scale than Denny's or McDonalds, which are common in the Seatac area. We were surprised and delighted when we arrived at the beautiful CedarBrook Lodge property. It is no more than a mile away from the airport, but you would never know it. The grounds have beautiful trees, reflective ponds and a peaceful atmosphere. The Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar are center stage at the resort and have a beautiful view of the grounds.
The food was wonderful!!! Copperleaf touts a sustainable farm to table menu, and food that nourishes the mind, body and spirit. I had the vegetarian tasting menu and I can tell you that when I was finished my mind, body and spirit were well nourished and at peace. Each taste was a delight and a completely new experience. My husband had the duck and it melted in your mouth. Our friends both had fresh Steelhead and being from out of state were thrilled to have something local. And....the deserts, well you will just have to go and taste them for yourself.
