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 »

  • 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 »

  • URBAN Enoteca

    URBAN Enoteca

    Deep in the industrial guts of the southern reach of Sodo, this gorgeously rehabbed warehouse is part mega-tasting room, part special-event space, with a tasty restaurant on the side. The sweet-potato doughnut with maple glaze and tart cranberry... More on URBAN Enoteca »

Bars & Clubs

  • 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 »

  • Dante's

    Dante's

    Those people who claim the University of Washington lacks a consistently great bar within walking distance of campus-and there are many-have never been to Dante's. A self-proclaimed "U-District Tradition since 1966," the bar's air hockey, pinball... More on Dante's »

  • 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 »

Music Venues

  • 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 »

  • 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 »

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 »

  • 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 »

  • Northwest Film Forum

    Northwest Film Forum

    This Capitol Hill two-plex imports just about every art-house title direct from Manhattan, and along with concessions serves beer and wine. It also hosts mini-fests ranging from children's movies to New Croatian Cinema, as well as the annual... More on Northwest Film Forum »

Food Trucks

  • 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 »

  • Crisp Creperie

    Crisp Creperie

    The gourmet food truck offering rotating crepe options based on the season. Which means you have to wait until summer to delve into the delectable turkey avocado with onion marmalade crepe, but it's well worth the wait. The unusual crepe... More on Crisp Creperie »

  • 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 »

  • Bauhaus Books & Coffee

    Bauhaus Books & Coffee

    This place is just like your favorite pair of jeans. You might be tempted to try on a new pair -- or a new barista -- but you'll always slip back to your old friends because it's all about comfort. Bauhaus is the quintessential coffee spot,... More on Bauhaus Books & Coffee »

  • 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 »
