The natural progression

A match made in heaven. The pairing of two like-minded souls. Call us what you will, but we were meant to be together, if nothing more than for our common desire for food that tastes good. Of course, we've been known to pig out on Ding Dongs and ice cream like the rest of 'em. But for the most part, Roth and I share a mutual love for going out to eat for a fabulous meal.

One of the reasons we decided to move from the Central Coast of California to a bigger city like Seattle was for the food. To actually have options when it came to choosing a restaurant. Now that we've had a couple months to settle in to our new surroundings, we're ready to explore all that Seattle -- the Emerald City -- has to offer in the way of food culture and restaurants. Whether it be an ongoing search for the perfect steak to the discovering the best french fries in the city, we want to document our (mis)adventures along the way. And hopefully, our fellow Seattle-ites and visitors alike will benefit from our real-deal opinions and reviews.

We have started compiling a list of "must-eat" restaurants from friends and acquaintances, but we welcome any suggestions for places we absolutely cannot miss in our journey. There will be much more in the coming weeks -- stay tuned for now!

I know you're not vegetarians. But, some of the best food in Seattle can be found at 'Cafe Flora' and 'Carmelita'. Check 'em out!

Congrats on the new foodie blog - can't wait to see what you guys review. It will give me and Daniel another reason to visit Seattle! :)

OK, here you go with some ideas. I've eaten at all of them...

Crab Cracker
452 Central Way, Kirkland
Get the Copper River salmon when in season. Order it poached. It's flown in from AK the same day it's caught. Sublime.

Ristorante Paradiso
120 Park Lane, Kirkland
Go with a large group and order family style. The veal melts in your mouth.

Salty's on Alki
1936 Harbor Ave SW
Great view to go with the great food. The sashimi was delectable.

2601 W Marina Pl
Possibly the best overall dining experience I've had anywhere ever. Not cheap. Salmon roasted on an applewood plank - whoa!

Etta's Seafood
2020 Western Ave
I remember some appetizer with roasted almonds and figs maybe... or something...

Anyway, there's plenty to keep you busy. Have a blast!

Have you guys considered doing group events? My wife & I recently (well, July 2004) moved to Seattle and love checking out new and yummy restaurants, and we're always up for meeting more people.
