When we moved here 18 months ago one of the things we missed was good inexpensive restaurants. Boston has all the chain restaurants like Seattle, but we had a group of mom and pop places that we loved Cabby Shack, Hola, La Paloma, T Bones, The Milepost. The food here is different from back East and I have finally accepted that. We have found a few places that we like, but we are still exploring.
On Wednesday I met my friend Jamie at Machiavelli’s on Capital Hill. It is one of her favorite places for Italian. I had to go with the traditional chicken parm which was very good. The best I have had in Seattle. I only wish they had cannolis, but I will be back.
On Saturday Larry and I went to the Brave Horse Tavern in Southlake Union. It is a great pub/bar. The pretzels were awesome. The dips were peanut butter bacon, sour cream chives and roasted pepper cheese. My fish sandwich was not so good, an Arby’s fish sandwich would have been better for half the price.
Running is going well. I ran in Bellevue on Saturday with ESR and it was super hilly. 6.4 miles with an elevation gain of 1300! On Sunday Amy and I ran 5 miles then met the group at the Balanced Athlete. I saw a family of bald eagles on the run, they are pretty impressive.
Do you have any favorite restaurants in Seattle or Eastside?
