Fanciest shrimp in Seattle?

Where would you go for the fanciest shrimp in Seattle or the Eastside? I'm open to various interpretations of the word "fancy": most elaborate presentation, most decadent dish, etc.

Thanks!

Molly Moon ice cream in Wallingford (SEA)

Can you still get Fran's ice cream in Seattle? Last time I went by their shop in UVillage they said they didn't sell it there any more.

Gelato/Sorbet in Seattle

Hands down, the best gelato I've ever tasted is Capogiro, which comes from Philadelphia and is worth every penny of the $11 or so a pint it costs. You can find it at Evze on Eastlake. Definitely give the hazelnut a try - it's incredible.

Marcela's Cookery (SEA)

Went to Marcela's for dinner tonight. We were the only folks in the place, but had a good meal. For starter, we had fried crawfish tails, served with a cocktail sauce and a remoulade. I also had a cup of the shrimp file gumbo, which wasn't quite as flavorful as I might have expected, but still tasty. For entree, I had butterflied shrimp served with a crabmeat stuffing that was excellent. The pecan pie was also quite good. Marcela's has a really nice atmosphere, with exposed brick and murals on the walls, and the owner was friendly and chatty (he's a recent New Orleans transplant who moved to Seattle just 6 months ago). Overall I'd definitely recommend giving the place a try!

Korean Fried Chicken

That's a fantastic tip. Thanks, MightyMac! Discount guns and Korean chicken...sounds like a road trip in the making.

Black-and-white cookies

Does anyone know where I can find black-and-white cookies in Seattle? We used to call them "half-moons" back in Boston. In the best ones I've had (usually found in the grocery store in Jewish neighborhoods, not at the Italian bakeries), the icing would typically be a little bit hardened, and not too sweet.

Mmm, I've just finished my dessert for the evening (thanks for the great rum ball, B&O!), but my mouth is watering thinking about the perfect half-moon.

Seattle Brunch

Who's got a brunch that's worth waking up early for? I've heard that Macrina Bakery and Etta's are standouts, and I've been to The Dish and 14 Carat Cafe. I'd be interested in any other recommendations - you guys rock! Thanks.

Bread Pudding in Seattle

Who's got the best bread pudding in town? I seem to remember having a butterscotch bread pudding somewhere that was fantastic, but can't recall where it was. Any ideas?

Korean Fried Chicken

Hey fellow hounds - long-time lurker, first-time poster here. I'm on a quest for Korean Fried Chicken, the kind that was mentioned in last week's New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/07/din... ). What I had in Chicago last week was a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, moist and crunchy - just like the article says.

Anyone know if Korean fried chicken has made it to Seattle yet?

The Dak Kalbi at Old Village Korean Restaurant in Shoreline was excellent, but not quite what I'm looking for.
