It's been more than three years since I've been in my beloved Seattle, more than ten years since I've lived there. No Pho so 1, no Shanghai Garden, no Red Robin, no Beth's, no Lampreia, no Matt's in the Market, no Noshino, not for a long time. Those restaurant names probably sound like relics (and wisecracks) to the egullet hyper-attuned. I'm curious what has evolved in my absence. I just managed to slip into Lark on my last visit. Liked it very much. What else is new in Seattle? Do you have heartthrob butchers with tattoos and master's degrees? Does every restaurant make their own charcuterie? Has Nathan Miervold cloned a Neopolitan Pizzaiolo for his new Hunt's Point pizzeria? I have three nights to hit the best of what is going to look to me like a new Seattle.
Will y'all please help me make a good list?

You shouldn't eat grouse and woodcock, venison, a quail and dove pate, abalone and oysters, caviar, calf sweetbreads, kidneys, liver, and ducks all during the same week with several cases of wine. That's a health tip.
