The Sandwich Goes Gourmet
Seattle Magazine » Eat & Drink

In 1987, Washington legislators gathered in Olympia to declare the smoked salmon sandwich the sandwich of the Evergreen State, but the decree never stuck. This smoked salmon sandwich has yet to make a lasting impression compared to Chicago’s Italian Beef, featured prominently on the TV show The Bear, or gain the widespread reach of New York’s chopped cheese. Nor does it boast its origins in its namesake like the Philly Cheesesteak. Seattle doesn’t have one reigning sandwich, but that hasn’t ruled out sandwich shops from taking root and, partially because of the pandemic, becoming key players i ..read more

We Need to Talk About Tivoli
Seattle Magazine » Eat & Drink
by Naomi Tomky

The first time I ate at the pizza-centric Fremont restaurant Tivoli, the Caesar salad haunted me for months: crisp romaine lettuce, a hint of bitterness from chicories, a creamy coating of dressing, generous crunch of seasoned panko, and, for those who want it, plenty of anchovies. I dreamed of it until I went back for another round. Each time I return, for the mortadella sandwich with whipped ricotta and “pistachio jazz” at lunch or the black garlic knots at dinner, I marvel that the massive crowds of Seattle dining scenesters have yet to find it. The Caesar salad at Tivoli is made with fre ..read more

Diaspora Presents a More American Americano

Seattle relishes its reputation as a coffee town, but a start-up beverage company hopes to help locals rethink their relationship to an industry with a history of colonialism and destructive monocropping. Diaspora Cafe Yaupon Espresso roasts, serves, and sells yaupon, the only native North American caffeinated plant — and along with it, a message of celebrating Indigeneity. The dried green leaves, roasted, ground, and brewed like espresso, produce a drink somewhere between coffee and tea. “It has an herbal chocolatey nose,” describes co-founder Ian McCluskey. “The body definitely has red ..read more

Seattle’s New Bagel Boom

With the recently opened second location of Rachel’s Bagels & Burritos, and the impending arrival of two more bagel specialists, Seattle feels on the precipice of something big. While previous bagel booms have gone bust, this wave feels different: These are proven bagel talents who know the business and come with experience, and they open in a different time and place than those previous waves. In a city that has long held hope for great bagels, the population is finally able to consistently expect it — and that sets the bar higher for everyone. “Fewer people come by and say, ‘This is a go ..read more

Renewal at the Farm Table
Seattle Magazine » Eat & Drink
by Alicia Erickson
2w ago
Slow food is a celebration of seasons, a reflection of the rhythm of nature as vegetation and animals move through the cycle of slumber, revitalization, and springing back to life, and the many moments in between.  Slow food goes beyond the plate and reflects the human experience. As days become longer and warmer, our bodies crave lighter, fresher meals and more time outside. Although farm-to-table has become a tired term in the culinary world, when done right, the concept of eating seasonally is anything but tired. It is an ode to nature and a love letter to the ever-changing pocket clim ..read more

Up-N-Down For In-N-Out?
Seattle Magazine » Eat & Drink

I was at my favorite burger spot last weekend (more on that later) when the subject of In-N-Out Burger inevitably came up. You’re a rock-residing recluse if you haven’t heard that the ridiculously popular burger joint is considering opening its first location in Washington state. If it happens — and recent history suggests “if” is truly the right word — you’ll only have to travel 152 miles south to Ridgefield to peruse the chain’s famous “Not So Secret Menu.” I’ve never been to In-N-Out. And while few will drive almost six hours round-trip just for Kennebec potato French fries or onion-laced p ..read more

The Region’s Best Mexican Food is in a Snohomish County Parking Lot 
Seattle Magazine » Eat & Drink
by Naomi Tomky
2w ago
Few places in the Northwest sell Sinaloa-style roasted chicken, pit-roasted lamb as served in the state of Mexico, or the Jalisciense drink tejuino, made from fermented corn. But on weekends from April to September, vendors sell all of them, plus dozens of other regional Mexican delicacies, in a parking lot behind the Tulalip Resort. Hidden Gems Weekend Market began its spring season April 6, running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Most years, it runs through Memorial Day Weekend, then closes for six weeks before reopening for the summer season after July 4. Among the 20 aisles ..read more
