So, people who watched last night, what did monsieur Bourdain miss on his trip?

I was surprised not to see Spinasse or Book Bindery mentioned (or maybe even Il Corvo, which is suddenly so hot in it's new spot).

And the nod to multi-culturalism with the trip to the Rainier Valley in the end seemed tacked on and lacking. I mean, if you're going to call it out as "the most diverse zip code in the country" with cuisines to match, how about actually spotlighting some of these places and visiting instead of just paying it lip service?

I also thought it was a dissappointing that even a non-conformist-type like him spent the time doing a Pike Place Market segment when he could have been in Fremont/Ballard, Cap Hill or even White Center, although he makes a good point that it's nice that even the "tourist trap" areas of the city have great food here.

Also, I wish did more with beer and all of fun micro/nano breweries that around, but that's more a personal preference.
