Dóttir Aims to Combine the Cuisine of Iceland With Pacific Northwest Flavors. It’s Not as Unique as It Sounds.
Dóttir, the restaurant that occupies the lobby of Kex, the new “social hotel” with roots in Reykjavík at the east end of the Burnside Bridge, thankfully does not serve hakarl. In fact, there is little on its menu that’s distinctly Icelandic. Of course, not serving rotting fish flesh is a low bar for success. But so far, it’s one of the 2-month-old restaurant’s few notable achievements.
