Spotlight on Happy Hour: The Tin Table

My next happy hour adventure brought me back to Capitol Hill to The Tin Table. Part of the Century Ballroom, this quiet, quaint, 2nd floor bar is definitely a hidden gem. If you weren’t looking for The Tin Table, it isn’t likely you’d stumble upon it, but it is definitely worth seeking out. Although Century Ballroom […]

Eating it Up at the Mobile Food Rodeo

This year, I attended the Mobile Food Rodeo for the first time. It’s the event’s second year, and it’s filling a huge gap in the Seattle food scene. Seattle has a love-hate relationship with food trucks. We have a lot of them, and numbers are growing, but they’re scattered, and continually moving, or have short […]

Tasting the Sights of Taste Washington!

Imagine being thrown into a space where someone tells you that you can try whatever food and drink you want, but you only get six hours to do so. (Or in my case, your boss wants you to not just get stuck in the corner with the desserts.) And, while you’re trying to figure out […]

Find Comfort Food and Craft Cocktails at Seattle's Lot No. 3

Lot No. 3 is part of the Heavy Restaurant Group, tucked alongside Purple in downtown Bellevue. The signs and logos for the restaurant are small enough that, if the black and white sign isn’t propped out front, it can easy to miss the Lot at first glance. It almost blends in to Purple and a […]

Chiso: Hidden Sushi Spot Does Seafood Right

Chiso, from the outside, is unassuming and demure. It’s easy to miss, as you pass by signs for the Flying Apron Bakery and UPS. You can barely see  the restaurant until you walk down a pathway to the front desk. Inside, the sushi bar opens up to a minimalist dining area. The furniture is all […]

TRACE: Earth & Ocean gets a new look

TRACE, the reborn Earth & Ocean in the W Hotel Seattle, opened on the 9th without fanfare, but with skill and visible excitement. There are really two areas to TRACE, a lounge and the restaurant proper. The lounge is sleek, with a metal fireplace surrounded by comfy lounge chairs, while the restaurant is a comparatively sterile […]
