.... does anybody else notice a striking similarity between the menu at the new Bastille and Le Pichet/Cafe Presse?
.... even after glowing reviews Tillikum Park Cafe is often empty? Get in there and support this place!
.... how some lousy restaurants manage to stay open in this down economy when good ones go under?
.... when diners will finally get over this obsession with upscale mac-and-cheese? Yes, everybody's favorite comfort food tastes damn good, but it's a sign of a lazy, unimaginative kitchen. Let's move on.
.... why Tom Douglas isn't as famous as Mario Batali?
.... when there's going to be a backlash over review sites like Yelp.com? Oh, wait, that's already happened.
.... why more chocolate lovers haven't made the pilgrimage to Claudio Corallo in Ballard?
.... where can I find authentic Cajun-style boudin in the Northwest? (There is a boudin blanc on the menu at Le Pichet I wanna try.)
The first person who answers all these questions gets a picnic lunch at the Seattle Art Museum's Sculpture Park catered by me, Critic-Turned-Cook. Ready, go!
