It's never too early to start preparing for thanksgiving dinner. Bakery Nouveau has a lineup of classic holiday treats including pies, rolls and Stollen. They are all available for preorder and can be picked up from any of the Bakery Nouveau locations. Orders must be in by November 19th. Volunteer Park Café also has Pies available for order, all for $34 each. Place your order by Thursday November 16th.
Due to redevelopment plans in its current building, 99 Park in Bellevue has closed permanently. However, you can take heart in the fact that some of their menu items are available in its sibling restaurant 2120.
Our Pick of the Week
Bateau, Capitol Hill - I finally tried Bateau for a friends Birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. We had their preset dinner menu due to our party size and everything on the menu was delicious. By the time the steaks came out, we could barely breathe. Definitely try their dry aged beef meatballs and their bread pudding dessert.
Meatballs - Try a simple recipe this week. These Rosemary Thyme Balsamic Meatballs by Fit Foodie Finds seem easy to make and a healthy choice for the week.
New Sh*t in Town
The Wine Station, Beacon Hill - Hands up if you just want some unpretentious wine in a place with good vibes. If you put your hand up, look no further than The Wine Station. Owner Luis Rodriguez wanted to create an inclusive wine bar where people of color, people of different socio-economic backgrounds, anyone could come in and have a good glass of wine without the snobbery. I'm all about that. I'll definitely be checking them out.
'Table, Denny Triangle - This Vegetarian burger place is finally opening tomorrow. For their grand opening, you can try out their veggie burger for just $2 all-day.
Palmi Korean BBQ, UDistrict - There is a new Korean BBQ spot in the Udistrict. Their menu is pretty standard. You can order meats and grill them on your table or order cooked off the menu. They also have other common Korean staples like Bibimbap and Sundubu.
The Moo Bar, Denny Triangle - You know those teardrop looking cakes that sometimes appear on your Insta feed and have you wondering how they would taste? Well now you don’t have to wonder. Moo Bar, who is known for raindrop cakes amongst other things have opened a Seattle location in Denny Triangle. Get to tasting and Instagramming.
