A prim and proper French eatery in First Hill, Bateau is the airy, preppy answer to overtly dark and masculine steakhouses. You'd expect the vintage floral dishware to host small portions designed for tasting, but the delicate appearance of the interior does not translate to the food, and that's a good thing. After starters of paté and sweetbreads, prime beef is what's on the menu, in the form aioli-laden burgers and buttered-up steaks butchered in house.
