While I live in Seattle I do try to get out a bit and deliver views on food from all over the planet. That said, Seattle does have its own charm. And after all, it's where I eat most of the time. The New York Times wrote about four Seattle restaurants in the Sunday Travel section (free registration required). Mark Bittman writes about Lampreia, Salumi, Lark, and Cascadia. I think the write-up is pretty on target. The only thing I quibble with is the opening that "the restaurant scene in Seattle is among the country's most vital". Maybe I'm suffering from a "grass is greener" syndrome, but while Seattle does have several gems, (and it's certainly better than most cities) it still feels somewhat provincial to me. How can you say a restaurant scene is "vital" when you can't even get great Chinese food?

I should also mention that Lampreia which is featured prominently in Bittman's article currently is serving a tomato tasting menu that will blow you away. The gazpacho poured over super thin avocado slices draped over a stack of little parmesan crackers alternating with little patties of salmon will blow your mind. It's absolutely incredible. Go eat it before Chef Carsberg moves onto the next thing.
