I grew up in Issaquah, graduated from Skyline High School and now spend about four months a year in town. I thought I knew every restaurant Issaquah had to offer, but I had never heard of Amante until about a week ago.
Issaquah’s Amante restaurant is one of the chain’s 10 locations in the Puget Sound area.
It is located in a cute European-style building on Locust Street (near Safeway), and is fairly well hidden from the heavy traffic cruising down Gilman Boulevard daily. Our server estimated the Issaquah location to be about five years old. (He did admit he was new, however.)
