20 Foodie Questions with Julien Perry
Our dear food and dining editor Julien Perry was the subject of a culinary Q&A over on OpenTable's blog. (Read the entire post here.) In it, Perry reveals her fave restaurants and cuisines as well as her pre-foodie past (something we fellow Seattle mag-ers didn't even know): "I used to be a bodybuilder and was on a strict diet for most of the mid '90s. I’m pretty sure I had more artificial sweetener coursing through my veins during my competition diets than a silo of Sweet ‘n Low."
Below, a sampling from the Q&A:
What are some of the best qualities of the Seattle dining scene?
I’ve lived here for 20+ years, and some of the best qualities include: always incredibly fresh local produce, staggeringly good seafood, chef-driven restaurants, and a quaint neighborhood feel in a big city.
Any restaurants at which you’re something of a regular?
Most Ethan Stowell restaurants (mkt., Bar Cotto), Corretto (across the street from my home), RockCreek, and the bar at Canlis (until I can afford to have a real meal there).
