Best From The House

Volterra: Tagliatelle with Lamb Ragu

Volterra Seattle

Just right al dente pasta is handcrafted and cut in house at Volterra. Made with organic egg the organic egg noodles tossed with a rich ragu made with Anderson Valley Lamb, sangiovese and plum tomatoes; garlic and rosemary are added to taste then everything topped generously with freshly grated pecorino Romano cheese.

The Dog Gone Best

Comet Dogs: Beef Seattle Dog

Comet Dogs Seattle

Comet Dogs slangs Seattle dogs to the Capitol Hill crowd like it’s going out of style (it’s not). Comet Dogs may not have invented the Seattle Dog but they certainly have kept it alive and well. Open after 11 PM this well-loved and highly trafficked god-send delivers your style dog – beef, polish, hot link or veggie with sinfully satisfying cream cheese and grilled onions all for the affordable price of $5.
922 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122



The Swinery: Danger Fries

The Swinery: Danger Fries

This unsuspecting premiere butchery in West Seattle has gourmet fries with a gluttonous twist. Take their swine fries – handcut and fried in rendered pork fat, tossed with salt, fresh garlic and chives then smother them in an edacious bacon blue béchamel sauce.
3207 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116; (206) 932-4211; swinerymeats.com



Chow on Down

RN74: Taylor Shellfish Clam Chowder

RN74 Seattle

Taylor Shellfish Clams are the most local you can get in the seafood scene. Saturated in creamy, steamy broth, these clams taste like little pockets of butter and garlic filled balloons. Mix in potatoes, housesmoked salty guanciale, and warm up after a day downtown.
1433 4th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101; (206) 456- 7474; michaelmina.net


Dare To Try

Poppy: Grilled Red Braised Beef Tongue

Poppy Seattle

Think about the decadent delicacy of liver and tweak it a little to embody a smoky, substantial rarity. Poppy enlists the sweet acidity of caramelized carrot and a seasonal balancing herb salad. Just try it, we dare you.
622 Broadway E, Seattle, WA 98102; (206) 324-1108; poppyseattle.com
