Cassis was a highly regarded French restaurant on Capitol Hill from 1997 through 2004. Now owner Jef Fike is opening a version of it across from Alki Beach and next door to The Cactus. It seems a bit of an odd location for the delicate French dishes, with the Alki Ave vibe being more like a college part of town, and sunlight streaming through the large, garage door windows of the newish building. But then again, perhaps this is not so unlike the touristy seaside French commune for which it is named. For this version Fike has recruited Chef Andy Dekle from their days together at The Ruins. The food and cocktails are both quite nice, and it certain provides a change of pace from neighbors like The Cactus and Fatburger.
