In Fountain Court

The fountain murmuring of sleep,
A drowsy tune;
The flickering green of leaves that keep
The light of June;
Peace, through a slumbering afternoon,
The peace of June.

A waiting ghost, in the blue sky,
The white curved moon;
June, hushed and breathless, waits, and I
Wait too, with June;
Come, through the lingering afternoon,
Soon, love, come soon.

Arthur Symons

There is something about a name like June that sounds sweet, pretty, clean and crisp. As the poem above suggests, June is peace through a slumbering afternoon.

It comes as no surprise that June is an excellent name for the restaurant that recently opened in the former Cremant space. This new Madrona spot marries the worlds of French and Vietnamese cuisine.

Brought to you by Vuong and Tricia Loc,  the owners of Portage in lower Queen Anne, the menu includes small bites, entrees, brunch items and cocktails.

On the menu you will find items like :  easter radish, butter, fleur de sel  (4.50), tempura purple marbles (4.50) and rabbit rillette  (4.50).  Entrees include pan roasted free range chicken, madeira, morel, fava bean  (18), stuffed rabbit leg, loin, creamed nettle, natural jus  (19) and more. Brunch menus include items like Moroccan lamb stew, fried egg  (11), asparagus hash, shirred duck egg, hollandaise, duck hash, poached egg ( 13.)
