  • Takeout
  • Special Menu
  • Preorders
There are plenty of local, seasonal ingredients to be found in the "artisan-focused" restaurant's three-course dinner boxes ($50 per person), which include vegetables, bread and butter, dessert, and a choice of a vegetarian or meat-focused main course, like coho salmon or spring vegetable cassoulet. For a budget-friendlier taste of Lark, put in a preorder for their "Burger Mania" Thursdays: $20 gets you a Carman Ranch beef burger with raclette cheese and a side of fries, available for pickup at Chef John Sundstrom's spinoff restaurant Slab next door. Availability: Dinner box pickup available Tuesday–Saturday, 4:30-6:30 pm; Burger Mania pickup is 11 am-2 pm on Thursdays Preorder info: Weekly menus are announced by Monday of the week they're available (and frequently on Saturday or Sunday the weekend before—you can subscribe to their newsletter for updates). Orders must be placed on Tock at least 24 hours in advance.

After 12 years on 12th Avenue, beloved Seattle restaurant Lark moved into an expansive new space in the nearby historic Central Agency building in December 2014 and added two new restaurants in the process: a bar called Bitter/Raw and a lunch counter called Slab Sandwiches + Pie. At Lark, the kitchen remains as confident and as focused as ever: Chef John Sundstrom retains the locally sourced, small-plate dishes (such as chicken liver parfait) that helped establish the restaurant’s influential reputation, but he’s also added more traditional meat-and-starch entrées such as hangar steak and pork belly. This level of cooking doesn’t come cheap, but the experience is worth it.
