Restaurants

  • Revel

    Revel

    Revel, the new place in Fremont is the food-baby of culinary power couple Rachel Yang and Seif Chichri. They already have a loyal following due to three years of running Joule. Their approach to food at both Joule and Revel is pretty darned... More on Revel »

  • Eastlake Bar and Grill

    Eastlake Bar and Grill

    Wednesday is $5 steak-and-fries night, and Sundays and Mondays are $15 three-course dinner nights. Eastlake Bar and Grill has nice surroundings, Lake Union views, upstairs and downstairs bars, sports on TV, and one of the best bartenders, Brucie... More on Eastlake Bar and Grill »

  • Uneeda Burger

    Uneeda Burger

    If a chef smushed a multi-course gourmet meal between two buns, he'd end up with something like the sandwiches being served at Uneeda Burger, the immensely popular counter-service joint from Scott Staples. Burgers at this Fremont family-friendly... More on Uneeda Burger »

Bars & Clubs

  • Bathtub Gin

    Bathtub Gin

    Bathtub Gin is Belltown's version of the Seattle speakeasy. And one nice thing about the city's current trend of tucked-away bars is that every speakeasy does things a little differently. At Bathtub, you don't have to ring any doorbells or get on... More on Bathtub Gin »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

Music Venues

  • 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 »

  • Neumos

    Neumos

    Neumos on Capitol Hill is one of Seattle's hippest music venues, and unfortunately, the people who work there know it. They've got a talented booking staff with excellent, eclectic taste, but if you feel the cold shoulder, just brush it off and... More on Neumos »

  • 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

  • Harvard Exit

    Harvard Exit

    Located in a sleepy, tree-shrouded corner of Capitol Hill just off Broadway, the Harvard Exit was originally built as Woman's Century Club in 1925. It was converted to an art-house cinema in 1968 and acquired by Landmark in 1979. The venue has... More on Harvard Exit »

  • Grand Illusion

    Grand Illusion

    Named after the 1937 antiwar classic by Jean Renoir, the Grand Illusion has been around since 1970, when it was converted from a dentist's office into the Movie House by impresario Randy Finley. The nonprofit Northwest Film Forum took over the GI... More on Grand Illusion »

  • Cinebarre

    Cinebarre

    If fried pickles and pizza are the kind of concessions you like while taking in a flick--not to mention beer and wine, delivered right to your seat--then the age 21 and up (sorry, minors) Cinebarre is your kind of movie theater. If you're... More on Cinebarre »

Food Trucks

  • Here and There Grill

    Here and There Grill

    Julie Malcolm opened Here & There Grill three years ago, when Seattle's food truck scene just began to roll out. Her collection of 500 cookbooks feeds ideas for her revolving menu, and she repeats most menu items every few months, bringing back... More on Here and There Grill »

  • Tandoozy

    Tandoozy

    The once-a-week treat at the Sunday Fremont Market leaves fans hot for more, more, more. For starters, this mobile kitchen keeps it simple, offering chicken tikka masala and red lentil dhal, along with fresh-baked naan that makes other flatbread... More on Tandoozy »

  • 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

  • Starbucks

    Starbucks

    Since its founding by a trio of aspiring coffee roasters in Seattle in 1971, Starbucks has grown to become the largest coffeehouse in the world, with upwards of 20,000 locations in Seattle and around the world. Named for the chief mate on the... More on Starbucks »

  • Firehouse Coffee

    Firehouse Coffee

    There's a kids' play gym next door (Gymboree) which can be handy or noisy, depending on your need or mood. But it's a cozy coffeehouse atmosphere, with reliable sandwiches and tasty pastries. More on Firehouse Coffee »

  • Critic Reviews

    • 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 »
