April is here, which means the Seamless in Seattle deadline is fast approaching with just 15 more days to get your applications in. If I may be so bold, I would really encourage all your emerging designers to enter, because this year, well this year we have a serious new development up our sleeve. Check back here Wednesday, April 6 for the big announcement. (Since I’m bursting, I’ll give you one hint: you’ll need to buy a ticket.)

Poquitos
"Poquitos" is about as fitting a name for Capitol Hill's new Mexi-palace as “Tiny” is for a 300-pound man. I got the chance to soak it all in at the pre-opening party on Friday, and nothing owners Deming Maclise and James Weimann (the powerhouse duo behind Bastille Cafe & Bar) have done with their latest project is small.

Perched on a red chair at pseudo-Mafioso bar Vito’s on First Hill last week, giraffe-legged, rock-jawed Ted Danson presented me with an environmental riddle: He does not surf. Or dive. Or even go sailing, unless someone he likes insists on it. Yet he spends most of his time on the water.

(Can't run with scissors!)Cooked white beans, fresh sage and a touch of tomato paste create the creamy base for this nourishing soup.  Ribbons of kale add color, texture and major nutrients.  Serve with Pumpkin Pecan Muffins or a bit slice of warm bread and butter.  Who can resist?  Printable recipe click here.

I recently happened across an online commenter lamenting the pizza options in Belltown. The post was entitled “Bring Back World Pizza.” Well commenter: wish, granted.

Every year I come at the big April Best Restaurants issue from a different, hopefully fresh angle. This year, my inspiration was former New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni's farewell piece, at the end of which he argues that there is value at every price level.

There's a lot to be said for an outsider's view of things. Frankly, there's just less baggage. He/she doesn't take sides, doesn't play favorites, doesn't have a history (good or bad), so the opinions are pure. Or purer. When it comes to, oh, I don't know, a food writer from another city's take on restaurants here in Seattle? I think it's refreshing to read what they see, how they taste things. It makes me challenge my own assumptions.
