EAT/Redmond: Lunch with Layers. Named for the ancient art form of woodblock printing, in which artists layer colors and textures onto a blank slate, Woodblock is a creative new Redmond bistro with a casual neighborhood vibe. Decked out in twirling wood ,wicker lanterns, and solid ceramics, the dining room feels modern, yet approachable, with a menu to match. Dishes take on fun twists, like the plate of roasted spiced carrots on a puddle of homemade ricotta. The duck liver mousse, rich and silky, is served with a honey-tinged glass onion relish, and the perfectly crisp chicken wings make for a dynamite bar snack, drizzled with spicy chipotle-buffalo sauce.
