Boat Street Cafe’s Best Brunch
There are breakfasts, and then there’s Boat Street Cafe & Kitchen's Rustic Cornmeal Custard Cake.
There’s really no better place to meet friends for brunch than at the Boat Street Cafe & Kitchen, which is tucked away on the far reaches of Belltown near the foot of Queen Anne Avenue North. Cool light spreads through the loft-like space; it’s the kind of place where crisp white linens, freshly cut tulips…
Bisato is Affordable Brilliance

It seemed out of character when, in January, chef Scott Carsberg closed his revered fine-dining destination, Lampreia, after 18 years. Even more of a shocker: He reopened the same corner space just a month later, serving his version of an Italian cicchetti-style (small-plates) menu. Gone (and, if you ask me, not missed) are the hushed…

So when I heard Wabi-Sabi was the latest project from Thoa Nguyen (formerly of Columbia City, now living in the Central District) who serves tasty pan-Asian dishes at Chinoise Café and Thoa’s Restaurant & Lounge, I was heartened. Could it be that…
Toulouse Petit Restaurant Review
Brian Hutmacher get's serious with Toulouse Petit and a New Orleans inspired menu.
Brian Hutmacher could have cut corners when he opened Toulouse Petit in November. As the owner of Mexican restaurant (and singles meat market) Peso’s, right next door, no one would’ve blamed him if he had taken the easy road and opened a New Orleans themed doppelganger aimed at the flirty, heavy-drinking party crowd. Instead, it’s…
Where to Get a Tasty Sandwich: Ballard’s Paseo
Paseo’s newest sandwich shack in Ballard raises the bar for picnic-perfect beach eats.
Hey, anyone want to join me for a day of playing hooky and having lunch at the beach? Great, we’ll just stop at this pink roadside shack in Ballard for onion sandwiches and hit Golden Gardens. Wait, did he just say onion sandwiches? Oh yes, he did. The pink roadside shack is the Ballard outpost…
