Tall pines split the thin and rapidly moving clouds that quickly evaporated, revealing a golden sun and gentle blue sky. My light rail train had departed from a station at the airport where an art display honored Native American culture and a soundtrack of pulsing, meditative drum rhythms filled the air, and it weaved along the tree line and over cottage homes as we traveled into town.
Seattle is a gastronomical paradise with upscale and progressive food spots all over the city!
It’s drive-in, drive-through and road-trip season, and especially on sunny days, sometimes food doesn’t have to be goody-goody to be good. Here’s where some of Seattle’s top chefs go for fast food, here at home or when they’re on the road (including some in Eastern Washington — and North Carolina! — recommendations you might want to add to your list).
Buckle up, and strap on your bib. It’s time to explore the Pacific Northwest, taste buds first. Even if you’re a recent transplant to the upper left, no doubt you’ve already discovered what a mouth-watering place it is to call home. Take a ride with us to some of the region’s top dining destinations — from places in small towns, to big cities, to solitary hidden gems. We give you permission to plan an entire road trip dedicated to the pursuit of foodie bliss-dom.
