What in the world is this meat?

alligator has a wonderfully subtle gamey flavor. it made me think of a lamb and fish mixed together. it was wet-brined for a few hours then sauteed with onions, garlic, white wine, and herbs.

Spending a Weekend in Seattle-- Food recs anyone? :)

Hello everyone,

I''ll be spending Thursday through Sunday in Seattle the 3rd week of October. I'm quite excited as this will be my first time visiting the city!

I was hoping some fellow Chowhounders could help me out and recommend some fantastic restaurants around town. I don't have a strict price range though I'd like to keep everything reasonable with perhaps one big splurge.

I'll be staying with a friend who lives near University Village but am willing to travel pretty much anywhere. I'm also based in Los Angeles, so I'd probably like to stay away from ethnic and asian food as we've got a surplus of that down here. Lastly, I'm a huge fan of restaurants with an emphasis on locally produced, fresh, organic ingredients, which I hear is quite popular in Seattle.

Also, if anyone could recommend some fun things to do around the city, that'd be much appreciated as well :)

My sister sent me this email asking me to guess what she's attempting to make for dinner. I was stumped.

Any guesses?

Good cheap eats in downtown, (around 4th/Hope St)

Hi guys,

I recently started work here in downtown LA and am looking for some good, cheap eats, preferably near my office which is on the corner of Hope and 4th. I was hoping someone could recommend some place within walking distance as I'm not familiar with the bus systerm quite yet and don't have enough time to get my car out and drive somewhere.

Currently, I've just been wandering around looking for food, but have found nothing great yet. I hope there's more than just fastfood around here! :)

Thank you so much!
