Inspired by the American Craftsman movement with its focus on simplicity, originality and natural materials and the new “bistronomy” of Paris, Samara is a comfortable and intimate gathering space. We offer a menu celebrating local vegetables, sustainable seafood and heritage breed animals prepared in our wood-fueled brick oven and hearth, as well as a composed drink selection of biodynamic wines and seasonal batched cocktails. We are located on Sunset Hill in Ballard.
