  1. besides DeLaurenti there is a place called picnic on Phinney and they sell a gift pack of 4 Scrappy's Bitters made right here in Seattle. They also carry Dolin & Cocchi.
  2. absolutely! the food is wonderful and spring is a great time to go as they use so many in season items. They don't take ressies but you can put your name in and if they are busy head next door for a cocktail with 0ne bite amuse pairings. Lark is still my favorite. (casual dress)
  3. Oh that's good to hear--it's one of the places I'd been thinking about. Do you know if they take reservations? ← they do and I also think it's a good choice. I wouldn't do spur for my dinner though i love it for drinks and nosh bfore a dinner I like Spinasse and also would say that I still am a big fan of lark especially for a small group. Art of the Table is also just awesome. Union, Quinns, Boat Street or the much overlooked but really in the same price range le Gourmand (you don't have to do the tasting menu, they have ala carte) would be my choices~
  4. Amen!! I love Zig Zag and all the guys there but I hate it when all these others aren't mentioned as they rock! I was just at Liberty last night and had an Aviation old fashion- nice! If people do make it to Ballard for Hazlewood and Sambar I would add Traveler (on leary) to the list and the Copper Gater for their house infused aquavit
  5. Waterfront (they are owned by the same folks as Gaucho) has the tableside caesar.
  6. I'm pretty sure Gordo's is closed and the new location of Paseo took over that space. ← it has and it's worth going to this Paseo location! Also be warned, if you try to do a "Rocky" you need to train for that in advance! want to add in cocktails?
  7. we went and had an awesome dinner about 2 months ago. the food and wine pairings were sooooo delicious! and unlike eden I love the decor except for the weird puppets that were hanging on the wall. do get there early and have a cocktail next door at sambar
  8. my favorite drinks at the cocktail party were the punch and judy and also the pampanito. kudos to the juice team, nice job. my personal opinion was that this years Tales was much less organized than last year. I hope that they will hire a proper production company vs trying to do it all themselves, it has just outgrown that. The conferences also should be staggered to aleve congestion at the hotel, especially when trying to get all the way to the roof level. Of course it is always fun to connect with those we only chat with on line and see friends that we seldom see! great job to all of those
  9. I think Quinn's is all 21 or over? maybe only after a certain time? on another site this was listed: "Thank you everyone for all of the suggestions. My friends are leaving tonight, so here are the places we ended up going to eat: Marjorie Cactus - Alki (lunch) Ray's Cafe (lunch) Pink Door Belltown Bistro Steelhead Diner You can see the theme here was outdoor seating. If anyone else is looking for places in the future, I would say that all of the restaurants were very nice about accomodating us, but some were of course better suited than others. I think since Ray's sees so many visiting famil
  10. We have had cheeses vacuum sealed in Spain, Italy and Netherlands. Have never had a problem with it unless they xray and then I usually say it is cake. I do this too! I can name a billion snack foods. I generally bring back lots of tins of pates from France and although most are perfectly fine the TSA doesn't seem to know that which is why I kindof of fib about it. Also I have had sliced Serrano and Iberico vacuum packed and then slipped between double bagged shopping bags as carry ons. I have brought home lots of sausage from Spain and Italy- only loosing one that the damn beagle sniffed o
  11. Girls weekend is in vegas next weekend- we have ressies at Boulud and B&B for dinners. Looking for a late lunch spot on Sunday- say around 4pm. French bistro style preferred although american and italian are good too. We are staying at the Palazzo- suggestions? I wanted to do Bouchon but looks like just the oyster bar is open at 4?
  12. We just returned from a few days in Amsterdam- our first time there. Wow! What a beautiful city!! We stayed at 't Hotel on Leliegracht which is a wonderfully quiet and pretty canal just a few blocks from the Anne Frank House. The hotel was really cute, large rooms, breakfast included. We had a canal view which we loved. Next to the hotel is a nice little restaurant - de Luwte. The staff here were very nice, the food good. Nice outdoor seating on the canal, we ate here our first night as it was close, easy and not playing the football game that the entire town was watching! The next day was
  13. I have been to cafe NOLA a few times- breakfast items are definitely the way to go here, lunch items have been disappointing. the bloody marys are great! Haven't been to Madoka as they are only open for dinner and I'm usually doing a day trip to Bainbridge. The winery is fine but not a go out of your way destination.
  14. hmmm the only places I would consider to be fine dining in seattle would be Rovers and Le Gourmand Close to that tier but just a tad more casual in service would be Union and Crush My "must dine at" Seattle restos also include Harvest Vine, Lark, Tavolata, How to Cook a Wolf if you can get in (no ressies) & Sitka & Spruce. You can buy beers and drink them on the ferry to Bainbridge
  15. agreed and also if it is raining out the tourists aren't as bad. I love to go when it is raining!
