Restaurants

  • 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 »

    Volume

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • The Pink Door

    The Pink Door

    With its perch above Pike Place Market and a menu studded with salads and risottos, the 30-year old Pink Door has all the trappings of a destination for ladies who lunch. It's pretty tough to beat the outdoor seating at the Pink Door, one of the... More on The Pink Door »

  • Noc Noc

  • 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 »

  • Fusion on the Run

    Fusion on the Run

    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 »

    • 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 »
