Barely a month old, The Lookout is striving to be your favorite neighborhood hangout, and has the easy-eating burger to prove it. It's a messy, juice-dripping, minimally dressed, hand-held meal in a soft sesame-seed bun that will fill your belly without too much fuss. The Lookout is the downscaled reincarnation of Artemis, whose owners, Oscar Velasco-Schmitz and Boris Gorodnitsky, saw the writing on the wall with regard to pricey fine dining. They closed Artemis in February and opened The Lookout in June. Take your burger in its plastic basket (filled with thick-cut battered fries), lean against the outdoor railing, and enjoy a view of the Space Needle, the Olympics, EMP, and Lake Union.
