Restaurants

  • URBAN Enoteca

    URBAN Enoteca

    Deep in the industrial guts of the southern reach of Sodo, this gorgeously rehabbed warehouse is part mega-tasting room, part special-event space, with a tasty restaurant on the side. The sweet-potato doughnut with maple glaze and tart cranberry... More on URBAN Enoteca »

  • Coastal Kitchen

    Coastal Kitchen

    The good and bad news about Coastal Kitchen's brunch is that it's almost always packed. But the rumbles (scrambled eggs with an array of veggies or salmon) are generally worth the wait. Both the breakfast and dinner menus rotate through regional... More on Coastal Kitchen »

Bars & Clubs

  • Pimienta Bistro & Bar

    Pimienta Bistro & Bar

  • Dante's

    Dante's

    Those people who claim the University of Washington lacks a consistently great bar within walking distance of campus-and there are many-have never been to Dante's. A self-proclaimed "U-District Tradition since 1966," the bar's air hockey, pinball... More on Dante's »

  • The Cuff

    The Cuff

    Many gay clubs on Capitol Hill have been infiltrated by heterosexuals in recent years, but The Cuff remains the neighborhood's biggest "bear" bar. Standout features include an S&M sex shop onsite, an enormous dancefloor, and a painting of a lion... More on The Cuff »

  • High Dive

    High Dive

    In the former Suite G space-about as centrally Fremont as you can get-High Dive's vibe is more backyard Americana than bike-riding activist, but that's more or less the way the neighborhood is going these days anyway. Serving hand-rubbed,... More on High Dive »

  • Last Supper Club

    Last Supper Club

    Boom Jinx, Armin van Burren, Lady GaGa - it's evident by the names that have graced the Last Supper Club (124 S. Washington St.) with live performances that the venue is a level above others in the city's limited club scene. Pioneer Square's... More on Last Supper Club »

  • Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

    Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

    Ireland meets the Pacific Northwest in this Pike Place Market back-alley pub, whose dim wooden rooms seem like they should smell like peat smoke and potato farmers (but don't) and where even craft-beer snobs will be tempted away from their brew... More on Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub »

Movie Theaters

  • Sundance

    Sundance

    Outside the city, new multiplexes rise amid seas of concrete, preferably located near a freeway off-ramp. But in congested Seattle, where the old single-screen movie palaces are too large and inefficient to run profitably (see the Neptune and the... More on Sundance »

Coffee Shops

  • Caffe Ladro

    Caffe Ladro

    Ladro has achieved small-chain status, whatever you may think of that. People love their espresso-made from excellent, fairly traded organic Tony's Coffee beans-and desserts, such as berry pies and a superlative carrot cake, are all baked at... More on Caffe Ladro »

    • Stalked by a shape-shifting, DNA-infiltrating alien on their Antarctic base, Kurt Russell and company dissolve into mutual suspicion and distrust. The beast could be inside any of them, so you have to shoot your pal—or incinerate him with a flamethrower—without hesitation to save your own skin. John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing is a reverse guys-on-a-mission flick, where unit cohesion falters and leader turns against crew. It’s morning in America, and utter darkness at the South Pole. The 1951 original came during the Cold War, when sci-fi... More on Egyptian »

    • Mel Brooks' inspired 1974 spoof is probably his best movie, affectionately rooted in the James Whale originals (particularly Bride of Frankenstein) yet knowingly updated with innuendo and vaudeville. Gene Wilder stars as the reluctant mad scientist who's determined not to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. The great Madeline Kahn plays his fiancée, destined to end up with quite another man (er, monster, played by Peter Boyle). Marty Feldman is the goggle-eyed hunchback. Wilder and Brooks are both credited with the script, which includes... More on Egyptian »
