eG Foodblog: HhLodesign - On Food and Architecture in Food Traditions & Culture Posted March 22, 2006 great Blog, really enjoying it. Love your abode as well, reminds of a place i used to live in, esp. as we always have a skateboard floating around our place as well. Seattle is a great city, being from Vancouver, I come down there a few times a year, and tomorro is one of them, we are going to see a band (Gomez) at the triple door, can you recommend any places to dine near that venue.←Many people in Seattle seem to like Wild Ginger. It's just upstairs from the Triple Door. In fact, I think they share the same kitchen. I am not one of those people. Just down the street is a great place called Union. Nothing else in the area comes close. I might also check out the Library Bistro. I haven't been there since Matt Costello (the old chef) left for The Inn at Langely. But it was very good back then.It's also 25 for $25 month. 3 course dinners for $25. The participants near the Triple door are Wild Ginger, Tulio, Earth and Ocean, and Sazerac. You heard what I think of Wild Ginger.Tulio is fantastic since the chef came back from a stint at Troiani.Earth and Ocean I am boycotting because they refuse to serve foie gras. (Kidding, but it does make me pause) I hear Maria Hines is very good, but i haven't been there since she took over from Jonathan Sundstrom. Which reminds me, Jon Sundstrom at Lark is doing some great things.Sazerac I've never been to.Although I would agree wholeheartedly with this article:25 for $25 is bulls#@tGomez huh? You'll have to tell us how the show was. And where you ate!Edited to add: All the girls seem to like the Mango Daq at Wild Ginger. They probabley serve it at triple door too.←Thanks for all the recommendations. We actually got into town at around 3 and ate at Salumi, I had the porchetta sandwich and my husband had a salami sandwich and we were SO incredibbly full. By the time we got to the third Door, all we had were a few beer and a couple appetizers which were not that good at all. But thankfully show was amazing, one of the best shows i think i have seen and the venue was amazing. But thanks also for your sandwich and restaurant tour, we never really know where to eat in Seattle and now you have shown us the light!
