The Review

Reviewed by: Volcano Staff

Laura Carlson opened her first restaurant Feb. 21 in the former Bayview Café spot on St. Helens Avenue. After 30 years in the restaurant business, including 10 at Harbor Lights and two at Anthony's at SeaTac Airport, she thought it was time to put her knowledge and experience into her own pocket - Laura's Bayview Bar & Grill.

Laura's Bayview Bar & Grill is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast includes all the typical items, including the four-egg "Big Daddy's omelet ($8.95). Lunch and dinner includes soups, salads, a burger, fish and chips, chicken Parmesan and the aforementioned items.

French toast can be so basic: take bread, dunk in egg batter, cook, and serve.  Laura's, on the other hand, is fancy to look at and definitely not balloon bread - made using French bread cut on an angle. Five French bread slices lightly coated with egg were fanned out under disks of orange zest-infused butter next to a silver container of thin maple syrup.

Cutting into the fluffy, four-egg Big Daddy omelet flecked with herbs was like opening an edible Christmas present full of big hunks of bacon, gooey cheese, mushroom slices the size of half dollars, and a smattering of vibrant green onion and black olive.

On another visit, we answered the call to carb-up and had seafood linguine. Pasta was cooked just so, and the salty sea blended in the most alluring way with buttery garlic sauce. Clam shells were all open, tender not chewy, and only one had sand grit.

Drop by Laura's in you're in the neighborhood. Be ready for a smile.

HOURS: Monday-Thursday 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m.-11 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily
