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.)
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. Be it Bakeries, Landmarks Eateries, Destination Dining or Specialty Markets and real favorite recipes, Food Lovers Guide to Seattle leaves no corner of Seattle unexplored.
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.
