I drove around eating roast chicken this week, but other local restaurant critics had different priorities:
In the Times, Providence Cicero reviews Thoa's, the Vietnamese restaurant with the best view. Meanwhile, in the Dining Deals section, Nicole Tsong reviews Gainsbourg in Greenwood, the Francophile bar owned by our Hannah Levin.
Seattle magazine releases its annual Best Restaurants issue, placing the Best New Restaurant sash on Spinasse and giving Miss Congeniality bouquets to a number of others.
Brendan Kiley at the Stranger searches for Seattle's best crab, and finds it at Sea Garden. Hmm...I wonder if the prices for the Sichuan crab at Seven Stars Pepper have come down?
