Restaurants

  • 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 »

    Shawarma King

    Meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie is called by any number of names: Donair kebab, gyros, Tarna if you're in Armenia. But on The Ave, it's shawarma at Shawarma King. The small, but lavishly decorated dining room -- all done up in lipstick red,... More on Shawarma King »

Bars & Clubs

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Rickshaw Restaurant & Lounge

    Rickshaw Restaurant & Lounge

    The Rickshaw serves greasy Chinese food and American fare, but nobody ever goes there to eat. The establishment is much better known for satisfying folks who've got an insatiable appetite for karaoke. It's packed with singers until closing every... More on Rickshaw Restaurant & Lounge »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Conor Byrne

    Conor Byrne

    Narrow bars like the Conor Byrne Pub remind me of train cars. I love walking through the door and having the entire scene stretch out before me. The elaborate bar made of dark wood, the big brick wall, the tiny little stage in the corner, the... More on Conor Byrne »

    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 »
