VOTED BEST RESTAURANT IN TACOMA!
The readers of the Weekly Volcano, Ranger & NWMilitary.com have voted for their favorite businesses, people & places in the 2016 Best of Tacoma!
Pacific Grill is honored to announce that we have been voted Best Restaurant, Best Brunch & Best Late-Night Restaurant in the 2016 Best of Tacoma!
When you consider that Gordon Naccarato, owner and chef at Pacific Grill, has been listed among Food and Wine magazine’s “Top Ten Best New Chefs” and has made the occasional appearance on the PBS cooking show Great Chefs of the West, it should come as no surprise that, once again, the Pacific Grill has made the Weekly Volcano‘s Best of Tacoma list.
Voted Best Brunch, Best Late-Night Restaurant, and Best Restaurant overall, the Pacific Grill is located in the historic Waddell Building at 1502 Pacific Ave. in the heart of Tacoma’s thriving downtown district. Described as “a stunning urban space … perfect for romance, great conversation and world-class food,” this destination restaurant is the place for a casual get-together with friends, dinner with clients or special occasion celebration.
He describes his fresh, Northwest-inspired cuisine as “fun dining, not fine dining.”
Pacific Grill’s extensive brunch, lunch and dinner menus include vegan and gluten-free choices. Tapas-style appetizers and extravagant desserts round out the options. And then there’s Pacific Grill’s famous All-Day Happy Hour, widely considered to be the best happy hour in Tacoma, if not the entire Puget Sound region. From open until close Monday to Friday, and from 4:30 p.m. until close on Saturday and Sunday, the happy hour menu offers half off all food items (excluding dinner entrées) and discounted well beverages and creative cocktail specialties.
Along with his business partner, Gig Harbor native Joe Hardwick, Naccarato has helped make the Pacific Grill not only one of the premiere restaurants in Tacoma, but also a popular event venue that offers both onsite and offsite catering. Check out its website (www.pacificgrilltacoma.com) to find out all that Pacific Grill has to offer.
Reservations are encouraged, especially during peak times, so call 253.627.3535 to reserve a table and see for yourself why, year after year, the Pacific Grill continues to be recognized as one of Tacoma’s Best.

FRENCHMAN’S POINT OYSTERS
This Fall and Winter we are featuring a new oyster at Pacific Grill that I find particularly delicious. And amazingly when we order them they harvest that very day and deliver them to us a few hours after they pick them up off the beach! You cannot get fresher than that!
Served on the half shell I like them with just a squeeze of fresh lemon. We also make a mignonette sauce (white wine and champagne vinegar) with a little freshly diced horseradish root and fresh cracked pepper. Frenchman’s Point oysters owe their unique flavor to the special surroundings in which they are grown or “terroir”, [ tehr-WAHR]. Originally a word used in wine and coffee appreciation, the term is used to denote the special characteristics of geography that bestow individual unique qualities upon the food product.
Scenic Frenchman’s Point is located at the entrance to Quilcene Bay, which is located at the northern end of Hood Canal,WA near Dabob Bay in the shadow of the Olympic Mountains, one of the most undeveloped bays on Hood Canal, and is bottle-necked so that with every tide change the pristine nutrients of the area flush directly over Frenchman’s Point.
The oysters are located far away from waterfront homes or other developments, and are grown on pea gravel & small rocks (not in mud) and you can definitely taste the difference. The flavor of the oysters is somewhat complex; plump and brimming with meat they have a slightly metallic overtone, finishing with sweet cucumber and a sprite brininess.
They taste like barely-held-together ocean…
Besides offering them on the half-shell, we also serve them as “Shooters” in a shot glass with citrus infused Stolichnaya vodka & cilantro.
We also roast them over a bed of rock salt perfumed with spices with our house-made pancetta and buttered crumbs.
Some of our guests prefer them deep-fried in beer batter and panko– served with house-made tartar sauce and our famous skinny fries, with olive-oil poached garlic cloves & fried herbs.
