Reading the Weekly's dining guide I pondered what the next hip restaurant opening in Seattle will start with the letters Cr.

Crustacean, Crack, Crust, and Crevice are my ideas. What's yours?

Crust would be a cute name for a pie bakery.

How about Crap? <extreme sarcasm>

OK, there's Carp, Craw, Crawler, Cork (wine bar), Cranberry, Czar, Car, (drive in) Cat, Cap, Cad, Café (I'm surprised someone hasn't hit on that one yet, probably not TM-able) Cape (sister restaurant to Veil :-) Crown, Crib (soul food :-) Crag (on a cliff overlooking the Sound), Chaff (bakery)... which may NOT be such a good word for a bakery, however I really didn't think a word that refers to a salad made with day old bread was either but it hasn't hurt their success (Panzanella).

OK, so they aren't all CR words. Sue me.

It is pretty endless isn't it. I like Café, very minimalist. Getting of the C words (and how about C-Word for a cutting edge restaurant?) it has been my longing desire to dine at a place called Eats.

Thanks! That sounds like a good place. Has anyone been?

Lord no. I wouldn't go anywhere called "Eats."

Isn't there a restaurant called "C" in Vancouver?

Frankly, the trend of the hip one-word name for stylish restaurants and stylish gift/card/furniture/candle stores is irksome to me.

Yes! C Restaurant

I love the name "Crust & Crumb" for a bakery.

Croquette? ("La Petite Croquette" instead of the more popular "coquette" would be such a cute name for a restaurant.)

or Croquant? Croquembouche? Crepinette? (Mistral in Vancouver does this pate en crepine...oh yeah...caul fat!) Or what about "Cracklings", a restaurant that serves those crunchy piggy morsels in different forms. Like chopped cracklings instead of croutons in your salad. Or instead of a pork loin sandwich, you could get a nice hunk of crackling in between some soft potato bread...with some tangy slaw.

...drooling :wub:
