November Food Events Not to Miss

By:

Farmstead Meatsmith

Apples, pork, booze with character and baked goods with substance... I love the autumn calm before the holiday storm, when food is comforting and uber-seasonal without being too over the top. Here are a few of my favorite November eating events that tread the perfect line between reasonable human behavior and coming wonderfully unhinged.

Teatro Zinzanni Sends in the Clowns

It’s not easy being a clown.

Tales from the Social Scene: A Lavish Evening with Mario Batali

By: 
Ernie Pino

I’ve been covering Seattle magazine’s society page, Flash+Talk, for over twelve years and clearly this distinction offers me some sweet perks.

Still, when publisher, John Kueber, and editorial director, Rachel Hart, recently asked if I was available to attend An Intimate Evening with Mario Batali, organized by the Seattle Art Museum Supporters (SAMS), they had my absolute attention.

"Romeo and Juliette" Gotta Lotta Love at PNB's Love Stories

Oh, ballet. It's so hard to do! So gruelingly technical! And so often... flat. At least to me. I always prefer modern and contemporary dance (which are not the same thing!) to classical ballet.

Food News: The Scoop on Restaurant Zoe 2.0

Restaurant Zoe's Scott Staples

Truth is, I loved Restaurant Zoe from the get-go. When it opened in Belltown 10-plus years ago I was writing for Citysearch and I remember that, during my two review dinners, I tasted some of the best salmon I've ever had in a restaurant. (I'm convinced that, like Dungeness crab, salmon is almost always better enjoyed at home straight off the Weber, which is what made Zoe's salmon such a standout in my memory.) Read more »
