Neighborhood Food News
Gordon Ramsay raises hell on Phinney Ridge, Blind Pig Bistro does discounts for Eastlake denizens, coho salmon abound in West Seattle, and more.
Skillet is making it easier than ever to get your hands on those bacon jam burgers. Boxed lunches and suppers for four or more are now available via delivery, and menu items can be procured through AmazonFresh (recipes included).
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood for those who live or work in Eastlake. Blind Pig Bistro is starting Neighborhood Nights, in which those who bring a work badge, ID, piece of mail, or any proof of Eastlake residency or place of work receive 10 percent off the bill. The deal begins November 25 and continues every Sunday through the end of the year.
No need to complain about slow service or anything, Gordon Ramsay is here to help. Phinneywood shares the news that the no-nonsense chef will film Fox's Kitchen Nightmares November 29 through December 2 at Yannis Greek Restaurant. Producer Joe Di Lauro is looking for patrons to fill the restaurant so if you’re interested, e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. The fine print: You have to pay for your own meal and must be 18 years of age or older.
After Black Friday and before Cyber Monday, there's Small Business Saturday, a nod to the independent retailers out there. Queen Anne Ave has plenty of shops and cafes joining the festivities: Chocopolis is handing free chocolate samples, and merchandise is $5 off at El Diablo coffee shop. Check out Queen Anne View for more specials.
Shop 'til you drop then stuff your face with breakfast food. Fresh Bistro is offering 50 percent off brunch from 10 to 3 on November 23, aka Black Friday. Not only does this include the coconut French toast Hawaiian breakfast and Dungeness crab eggs benedict, but even alcoholic drinks (and non-alcoholic ones, of course) are included.
The 18 counters had their work cut out for them at the Salmon Watch 2012 at Fauntleroy Creek. West Seattle Blog reports that between October 24 and November 17, 274 coho salmon were recorded swimming through the creek. Last year there were 167, the year before that only 11. That's a lot of lox.
