You should try Veil, where I work, at least for dessert!

I arrived in Seattle last night actually and I just made my set of dinner reservations: Lampreia, Mistral, Lark (we’ll walk in), Cafe Juanita and Harvest Vine. I wanted to try Nishino but my father does not want to have that style of cuisine. Should I swap my reservations for a place you think I am sorely missing? Thanks

Although I do force myself to order it out of “professional curiosity”. It’s nearly impossible to serve people portions appropriate to what they can actually eat. There is a deep tie in this country between value and large portions, and restaurants must accomodate that perception for their diners.

I know we’re in the minority, but we don’t mind having less if it means we don’t waste food, or over stuff ourselves.
