I've eaten some delicious meals at numerous restaurants since moving to Seattle, but only two so far that are in the Seattle Weekly 2009 Dining Guide. Here's one:
Skillet Street Food on a Friday at its Lower Queen Anne location. At 12:30, the line was about 15 people long and I waited about 20 minutes total. The airstream trailer is definitely a fun concept and the fresh, local food was delicious...but it was a bit pricey for a non sit-down lunch and the portions were modest. I had Penn Cove Mussels ($7) and a Watermelon Fresca ($3) that was so fresh and light it almost made me forget it was 48 degrees and raining outside. $10 isn't too bad for a good lunch in the city. Problem was, I was still hungry. A friend had the burger: grass fed beef, cambazola, arugula & bacon jam on brioche with handcut fries ($9). He was much more satisfied with the portion size.
Farewell, Modernist Cuisine. Hello Sansaire.
