3 days in Seattle

We have been twice, and would be there much more often if we were not coming from the Anacortes area. Most dynamic and interesting seafood dishes we have enjoyed in Seattle in a long time.

California Extra Virgin Olive Oil

For various reasons, including illegal mixing scandal in Europe, and desire to buy more locally I am considering switching from the organic Montebello EVO from Italy that I buy at the Skagit Valley Coop to a high quality organic California brand. Suggestions?

Is Walrus & Carpenter “the most important” restaurant in Seattle?

Wow, I really like restaurants, and owned a couple in Ballard for 30 plus years, and I have to heartily agree with TheCarrieWatson on this, especially the school lunch part. That is important! Hunger in America is important. Restaurants are interesting and entertaining, not important.

In Praise of Le Pichet

I know that Greg is a good friend of Skagit River Ranch, but luckily for me he does not get all their organic chicken livers. The members, like me, of their three buyer's clubs are also able to order them. I am not sure about their farm store, but I would assume they are available there as well.

Bellingham restaurants - any great foodie & ambiance recs?

Prospect Street Cafe has been consistently good over six or so visits. Similar vibe as Tivoli, but the food is more adventurous. Downtown, across the street from the Whatcom County Museum. They are only open Wed - Sun for dinner.
