TMA Mondays: Weather the Storm
TMA'ed while listening to The Mack by Nevada, Mark Morrison
Whether you updated your emergency kit, didn’t go into work and prepared for the worst or you decided to skip town like I did, we've survived the Seattle Storm of 2016. After such a weekend, you deserve to celebrate. Here are some fun food events happening this week. Also, Seattle Met has picked its restaurant of the year and…drumroll… it's Bateau! If you haven't visited, go try it and decide for yourself if it deserved the accolade.
Our Pick of the Week
Pam's Kitchen, South Lake Union & Wallingford- If you've only gone to Pam's for dinner, you have got to figure out a way to try their lunch because the coconut fried bake sandwiches are to die for. I always have trouble picking between the Jerk and the Geera pork, but you can't go wrong with either.
Peaches - I've be craving pie lately. I just want to bake pie. It's not even something I really know how to do, so I'm going to start small with this fresh peach cobbler by Sally's Baking addiction and hopefully by Thanksgiving my pie game should be 100.
New Sh*t in Town
Frankie and Jo's , Capitol Hill - Frankie and Jo's products are made by hand with whole, raw ingredients and no gums or stabilizers. After much recipe testing, owners Autumn Martin and Kari Brunson have figured out the way to creamy delicious frozen dessert is raw nuts sprouted overnight. Their scoop-shop will be opening next month, but they have 7 flavors ready to ship nationwide today.
Cursed Oak, Belltown - Co-owned by Mike Carroll, Josh Sharpe and Clif Ephan, Cursed Oak is the new Cocktail Bar/Lounge that'll be opening next month in the former location of The Coterie Room. The bar will be a cocktail heavy, spirit focused lounge with upscale New American cuisine. Keep an eye out for it on 2nd Ave.
Dueminuti, Capitol Hill - We briefly mentioned Dueminuti a few TMA Mondays ago, now their first location is open in Capitol Hill. It's a casual gourmet pasta restaurant and the owners have developed a proprietary pasta formula based on "natural flours, as well as nutrient-optimized recipes inspired by the Italian tradition". What you get is pasta that should leave you full sans the guilt.
Teku Tavern, Denny Triangle - Teku is the new kid on the block that wants to elevate your drinking experience. You can expect carefully curated beer, mead and cider options. They'll have 50 beers on tap, a 29-cooler selection of bottled beer, three cask stations and more. Outside food and man's best friend are welcome too.
Seattle, What's Happening?
Seattle Restaurant Week, 10/16-10/20 - It's the second week of Restaurant week. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat at that restaurant that has been on your list for a while for just $32. 3 courses for $32! Make your reservation now.
Cook's Science: The Burger Tour, 10/19 - From the description: "Cook’s Science: The Burger Tour will take you on a quest to answer one of America’s most pressing questions: What makes a burger so good?" Through various forms of interactive media, you'll get to learn things like how grass can change the flavor of beef fat and more!
Tequila and Taco Fest 2016, 10/22 - Eat and sip your way through a variety of tacos and tequilas at this food fest. The general admission tickets will get you two and a half hours to sample all the deliciousness and there are discounted tickets for safe drivers that include non-alcoholic drink tickets.
