Interesting - I always thought that the kitchen at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center had promise but wasn't quite inspiring me. This might be the thing that frees up their creativity.
Very excited to go check it out....
I'd heard there was a connection between this place and Olympia. Fantastic.
Believe it or not, I have to watch the ads or find a workaround myself - to read my own articles.
But I appreciate each and every one of you that jumps through hoops if you are indeed reading my scribblings.
Check out the shop up on Eubank - Enchantment Chocolates. Their daily buttermilk cake donuts are freakin' amazing. Super deep-fried to a crispy crunch.
Good job on 'outing' Poncho for not reading between the lines. ;-)
...but Gruet was pretty darn good. They also have a sashimi appetizer that was killer.
And Paul's is just not the same vibe as Gruet.
But we have Marcello's, Savoy, and Rancher's for the over-the-top experience. And Monte Carlo, Paul's, the Brasserie, and several others for just darn good steaks.
Don't forget, the lauded writer Jason Sheehan who penned lovely reviews for the Alibi in the early part of this decade used to be a grill cook at the Range.
Yep. It's all in his book - a good read for most foodies, and edge-of-your-seat for his fans.
Cooking Dirty, the book.
But... I think Mannie's is one of the underappreciated awesome diners in this town. Great food, old-school waitresses, and drinkable coffee.
Last time I had one at Scalo it was pretty freakin' good.
And, the tableside one at Rancher's Club, if they still do it that way - cracking the raw egg in front of you and everything. Perfect.
I think the raisins are key - they probably elevate the loaf from actual strange sawdust-tasting stuff to "hey, that's sort of interesting" fare.
