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 »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

Bars & Clubs

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • Pimienta Bistro & Bar

    Pimienta Bistro & Bar

    Chef Blanca Rodriguez, a veteran of Nordstrom department store kitchens, has transcended the strip mall setting of Pimienta Bistro with her artful, Latin-accented food. The menu is mostly what was once called Continental, but the delicious dishes... More on Pimienta Bistro & Bar »

  • Can Can

    Can Can

    Entering Can Can is like walking into Moulin Rouge-not the Parisian tourist trap, the Baz Luhrmann movie. The surreal dinner club serves up cocktails, dinner, and two burlesque shows a night, with servers doubling as cancan dancers.... More on Can Can »

  • 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 »

  • Last Supper Club

    Last Supper Club

    Boom Jinx, Armin van Burren, Lady GaGa - it's evident by the names that have graced the Last Supper Club (124 S. Washington St.) with live performances that the venue is a level above others in the city's limited club scene. Pioneer Square's... More on Last Supper Club »

Movie Theaters

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

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 »

  • Cheese Wizards

    Cheese Wizards

    At Cheese Wizards, avid sci-fi fans Bo Saxbe and his little brother Tom aren't just strictly relying on cheese to be their focal point. This truck offers a variety of sandwiches with a little bit of sci-fi and fantasy thrown into the mix. The... More on Cheese Wizards »

  • I Love My GFF

    I Love My GFF

    Situated on the outskirts of the food truck cluster of South Lake Union, the food cart GFF resembles more of a hot dog stand than a bona fide food enterprise. But this cute cart could not be any more different than a hot dog stand. I Love My... More on I Love My GFF »

Coffee Shops

  • Caffe Ladro

    Caffe Ladro

    Ladro has achieved small-chain status, whatever you may think of that. People love their espresso-made from excellent, fairly traded organic Tony's Coffee beans-and desserts, such as berry pies and a superlative carrot cake, are all baked at... More on Caffe Ladro »

  • Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe

    Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe

    This restaurant, coffeehouse, and juice bar, whose menu is "approximately 99 percent organic" and 99 percent vegan, serves good sandwiches, entrĂ©es, and desserts. About half of the restaurant's offerings qualify as "raw food," which means no heat... More on Chaco Canyon Organic Cafe »

  • 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 »

    • 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 »
