If my belly had its way I could nosh hop along 12th Avenue the way other people tackle bar crawls, but one Café Presse chicken in and my senses get the better of me. They tell me I don’t need pretzel dots from Licorous. That Lark ’s pork belly would be downright piggy (on more than one count).
To this logic I always listen, but on August 15, pssshhh. That’s when the first-ever 12th Avenue Neighborhood Festival takes place, for which nearly 20 food mongers are tapped. They’ll be dishing up bites costing $5 or less noon-6pm.
Retail vendors and buskers will be there, too, but here’s the lineup of participating restaurants so far: Café Presse, Osteria La Spiga, Lark, Barrio, Boom Noodle, Zobel Ethiopian Restaurant, Elliott Bay Cafe, Marjorie, Plum, Ethan Stowell’s Lagana Foods, Kokeb Ethiopian Restaurant, Bluebird Homemade Ice Cream, High Five Pie, Ambassel, Molly Moon’s Ice Cream, Cupcake Royale, The Tea Suite, Tavern Law, Elliott Bay Cafe, Kokeb Ethiopian, Quinn’s Pub, and Tidbit Bistro.
See you there.
