TMA Mondays: Short and Sweet
TMA'ed while listening to We Don't Talk Anymore by Charlie Puth
Not much is happening in the Seattle food scene this week, so I'll keep it short and sweet.
The short : Maggianos Little Italy in Bellevue recently had to close their restaurant due to a suspected Norovirus outbreak. What's with all the food related outbreaks recently? More sad news, Inay's in Beacon hill closed this past weekend. They were known for serving traditional Filipino food, but a mainstay for their Friday night drag dinners.
The sweet: In the yummier horizon, Autumn Martin and Kari Brunson from Hot Cakes and Juicebox respectively, will be coming together to give us Frankie and Jo's a "dairy-free, plant driven" ice cream shop. They are currently trying to raise 50,000 through Community Sourced Capital. Find out more about their venture there.
Our Pick of the Week
Miyabi 45th, Wallingford - Chef Mutsuko Soma spent years perfecting the art of soba noodles and lately has been serving them up at Miyabi 45th. Good news, she is expecting a baby girl soon. Bad news, Miyabi 45th will be temporarily closing and it seems like when/if it reopens things may not be the same. Get those Soba noodles before they go on Feb 13th. I know I'll be.
Bison - I'm feeling very game-y this week. I'm also feeling hand-held foods. This recipe for bison burgers fits the bill for both my cravings. Enjoy!
New Sh*t In Town
Wicked Good Grinders, Capitol Hill - Joel Mathieson is bringing the New England flavor to the Northwest. His food truck will be serving "wicked" good subs. Find the truck in Pony's parking lot. It's only there on Tuesdays for now, but there are plans for more frequency in the future.
Great State Burger, Bar Noroeste, Saint Helens, South Lake Union & Laurelhurst - Josh Henderson is hitting us hard this month by opening 4 restaurants. Two of them will be Great State Burger locations, but Bar Noroeste and Saint Helens serving Mexican and American fares respectively will also be appearing on the scene soon. Be on the lookout for them in the upcoming weeks.
Seattle, What's Happening?
Whiskey and Chowder Festival, 02/04 - Get out of the cold and warm your insides this week at the whiskey and chowder festival. Enjoy tastings of whiskey and chowder, from local restaurant and distilleries and the Foundry in SODO.
Do these recent food disease outbreaks make you more wary of eating out?
