Preserve a historic mansion while incorporating all-things sustainable and you get Preservation Kitchen.

When it comes to cozy dining in the Northend, your picks are sparse. Bars are scarce. Restaurants are in short supply. Northwest cuisine is practically non-existent among the plethora of strip mall Thai, Pho and Mexican haunts. There is, however, Preservation Kitchen. That restored mansion on Bothell Way. And it’s worth checking out.
