Thanks to Dish, I just found this board - what a great resource. Already spent a couple hours reading through all the posts and I have a list of restaurants I want to try out (Nells, Stumbling Goat, Moonsoon (and a sandwich at the Crumpet Shop!). Usually I just lurk, but I would really like to see this community grow - which I know only happens when people participate, so here is a small list of some of my favorite casual spots/eats - typically I like the smaller neighborhood places vs. the Belltown scene:
Lago (seems like everyones favorite) - I crave their City Of Seattle eggplant
Hi-Spot - best cinnamon rolls and scones
Columbia City Ale House - a great neighborhood place- with excellent homemade soups
Snappy Dragon - i'm a little too far from Judy Fu's these days - but I miss it...
Jitterbug - their hamburger is good (esp w/blue cheese - fries are a bit greasy tho)
KingFish - I love the place, but I hate the wait...
