Restaurant Roux

French Creole cuisine inspired by New Orleans and the Northwest from the team behind the food truck Where Ya At Matt in Fremont.

When Matt Lewis started his food truck Where Ya At Matt? in 2010, it was no surprise that it became a hit in Seattle, bringing New Orleans street food to the streets of the Emerald City. When Restaurant Roux opened in 2013, the idea wasn’t to simply copy and paste the truck into a brick and mortar restaurant but to expand on the idea of creole food in a Seattle setting.

While offering more traditional fare for lunch, executive chef Michael Robertshaw takes the flavors, ingredients and style of Creole food and brings in Pacific Northwest influence and classical French training. The combination of the bold, assertive flavors of New Orleans, the commitment to quality ingredients that Seattle prides itself on, and the attention to detail in technique and presentation that are hallmarks of French cuisine make for truly unique, memorable, and most importantly delicious experience.
