Restaurants

  • 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 »

  • Shawarma King

    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

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Volume

    Volume

    Located in Pioneer Square, this club has a vibe similar to that of its neighbors Trinity and Aura. Low, white leather couches on raised platforms are reserved for VIPs, and the DJ's play mixes of Top 40 hits. A request on Volume's Facebook page... More on Volume »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

Movie Theaters

  • SIFF Film Center

    SIFF Film Center

    Originally designed by Paul Thiry for the 1962 World's Fair, the old Alki Room became headquarters for the Seattle International Film Festival in 2011. A smartly modernist $2.8 million makeover by Owen Richards Architects and favorable city lease... More on SIFF Film Center »

  • 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 »

  • Lincoln Square

    Lincoln Square

    With stadium seating and a skybridge over to Bellevue Square (i.e., free parking), Bellevue’s cushy Lincoln Square boasts 15 screens and one big IMAX theater. It's the biggest multiplex on the Eastside, and there are plenty of places nearby to... More on Lincoln Square »

Food Trucks

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

Coffee Shops

  • Cherry Street Coffee House

    Cherry Street Coffee House

    Unlike the coffee shops whose food options amount to nothing more than a pile of stale, unappetizing pastries, Cherry Street Coffee is one of the rare joints where you can get a decent cup of coffee AND a decent snack to go. The bagels and... More on Cherry Street Coffee House »

  • 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 »

  • Fuel Coffee

    Fuel Coffee

    This scrappy little Capitol Hill coffee shop's patrons are as loyal as the atmosphere is laid-back. Fuel represents the middle ground in Seattle coffee culture: It's a place for folks who are neither Stumptown nor Starbucks, aficionado or layman.... More on Fuel Coffee »

    • 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 »
