Format: Paperback
I picked this up at the library and I'm not really impressed. This might have been a nice guide to have when we first visited Seattle for a long weekend, years ago. But, having lived here for over 2 years now, I think most of the places she recommends are pretty well known go-to places. I was hoping for something a little more in depth or to find some surprises. Also, I'm REALLY surprised at how sparse the coffee mentions are. I had to double check the publish date - there's some places she mentions that are NOT that great or have gotten to be awful. (For example, Lunchbox Laboratory has gone WAY down hill and is not worth a mention.)

I really waffled on the rating... I wanted to give it a "2" star, on the "jaded resident and I know what's good and what isn't" scale, but as a visitor, I'd have given this a 4 or 5. So I split the difference and gave it a 3. Like I said, this would have been GREAT to have when I knew nothing about Seattle and all the neighborhoods - although, again... had I followed this book's advice and gone to Lunchbox Labs in the last year, I'd have been pretty mad. (Seriously. Was once good, but DOWNHILL. AWFUL. AVOID.)

I initially purchased this book as a coffee table book. However, most coffee table books are glossy and sleek, and the pages of this book are not of great quality. Although it did not live up to my initial purpose for it, I find this book to be a superb guide for finding great places to eat when in Seattle. It's turned out to be far more useful than it would have been collecting dust on my coffee table. I'm pleased with my purchase.

I seriously carry this book with me every where I go. It's just the right size to fit in my purse so when I'm on the go in Seattle and I'm not sure where to go and don't trust the restaurant on the corner or my friends consistent poor taste in food then I whip out the Food Lovers' Guide! The way Keren Brown has organized it is flawless and so easy to use. It's sectioned into North, Central, Downtown, West Seattle and South so wherever you are you can easily find a great place to eat in and feel confident in where you're sitting down at. There's even an Eastside section, too! She has places in Redmond, Bellevue, Kirkland etc that all sound amazing that I haven't even heard of and I've been raised in Bellevue. So excited to visit every single place in this book!

This is a terrific book and if you live in Seattle or are visiting, you need to have it. Keren Brown has captured the Seattle food scene and done all the work for you of researching restaurants, festivals, local food shops and markets. The recipes she includes are an added bonus (Maria Hines' Chocolate Ganache Cakes look divine). I've already referred to it when in a particular neighborhood and found Keren's descriptions to be spot on for the restaurants I dined in. The smaller size of the book makes it perfect to carry in your bag when you're out. This is a marvelous resource for locals and visitors, and I just bought one as a gift, too. I look forward to working my way through the book and discovering new places to enjoy and revisiting old favorites!

I bought this book as a birthday present for my boyfriend and it's just great! I'm probably more excited by the book than he is but it suggests some really great restaurants and has an easy-to-follow format. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to delve a little deeper into the Seattle dining scene.

This compact book captures the Seattle food scene focusing on 5 major regions of the city of Seattle. Author Keren Brown keeps her pulse on the bountiful culinary scene by including the full range of foodie options from long time coveted Canlis to off the beaten track Oberto Factory.

This isn't your run of the mill laundry list of eateries. North, Central, South, West Seattle, and Downtown regions are showcased starting each chapter with some neighborhood background and history.

What a marvelous gift for any Food Lover or newbie to the city. Just make sure to buy two because once you start reading, you will want your own copy.
