  • Ivar's

    Ivar's

    Some people believe that in the best fish 'n chips, the fish serves simply as a vehicle for the thick herb breading it's fried in. Those people are incorrect. Truly great versions of the dish use the breading simply as an accessory to flaky,... More on Ivar's »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Tractor Tavern

    Tractor Tavern

    In today’s high-tech world, branding means everything. Ironically, one of the most reliable and identifiable music venues in town regularly hosts bands that draw their influence from the pre-computer age. For those with a hankerin’ for some... More on Tractor Tavern »

  • Tula's

    Tula's

    A break from the rowdy Belltown crowd, Tula's is in a pocket of Second Avenue that's a little older and quieter than the slew of neighboring clubs. Live, local and national jazz acts are featured seven nights a week on a large, low stage that... More on Tula's »

  • Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff

    Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff

    Don't forget to try the buffalo chicken cheese balls, spicy, gooey two-inch-in-diameter globs that seems like they'd be best paired with drinking a six pack and watching people play some competitive game on TV. These fried balls pack pieces of... More on Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff »

Coffee Shops

    Cherry Street Coffee House

    • 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 »
