There's somethin' new a cookin' at Spring Hill. Pastry chef Garret Melkonian, who most recently spent four years as Executive Pastry Chef for all of renowned Chef Tom Douglas’ Seattle restaurants — Dahlia Lounge, Etta’s, Palace Kitchen, Palace Ballroom, Lola and Serious Pie — and is expected to join the talented team at Spring Hill beginning Jan. 15.

What can Seattlelites expect? How about Caramel Corn Hush Puppies with pear soubise and brown butter ice cream; Valrhona Budino with Vietnamese coffee mousse and kumquat confit; and Crème d’ Cassis Granita with a fizzy champagne mousse?

I don't know about you, but this definitely sounds to me like one of the more adventurous, and delicious-sounding dessert menus I've seen in awhile.
Spring Hill is located at 4437 California Avenue, SW in Seattle Washington, 98116.
