Last week, Artboy and I ventured out for our Anniversary and an early Valentine’s dinner at local favorite El Gaucho. To be honest we had a $75 credit that was expiring so we went and spent $600 (after the discount) on steak and wine! I know, I know, that makes no sense at all. Especially considering my current health! I figured I’d share a bit of the love we received from one of our favorite PNW restaurants.
Not one to be thwarted by waking up at 2 am or running 13.1 (plus another 6.2) miles, I will not let a little thing like runDisney moving my favorite race to the morning (making it no longer my favorite race) ruin my Food & Wine plans. We made it through two rounds of booking and have a schedule fit for a very fat lush runner! Here we go…
We finally made it over to Culture Club Cheese Bar in Capitol Hill to enjoy our Kickstarter awards. Two pairings. I chose white and Ricky chose red.
This week’s Friday Five link-up hosted by Cynthia at You Signed Up for What, Courtney at Eat, Pray, Run DC, and Mar at Mar on the Run is about Food & Drinks. Since I so rarely write about Seattle restaurants and Valentine’s Day is this weekend, I thought I’d share five restaurants I love in the rainy emerald city. While the five are probably fully booked for Sunday, these are great spots for locals and tourists alike to experience anytime of year.
When we arrived a bit early at the Eiffel Tower (la tour d’eiffel–I have such a hard time saying it in English) for our 1:30 Jules Verne lunch, the day had already not gone as planned.
For Saturday night in Paris, I did a search on the Fork to see what popped up, looking for a gem in case one of the other reservations didn’t happen. Well, as it turns out, all of our reservations panned out, but we were so intrigued by the restaurant I found that we kept the reservation. Sola is a japanese fusion restaurant helmed by Yoshitake Hiroki with two floors, the bottom being a cave where diners eat on the floor without shoes. We didn’t get to eat in the cave, but we had one of the most thoughtful and well-crafted meals we’ve ever been served.
