Sexy Feast: LloydMartin Tempts with the Come Hither Motion

By coincidence, the Voracious crew has been bestowing a lot of praise on LloydMartin in Queen Anne. Yes, we’ve touted its social hour, Bolognese sauce, and feel as a first-rate first-date restaurant. And we just documented chef Sam Crannell’s love of antique plateware. The plateware…

Sexy Feast: La Vita e Bella Smells Like Teen Spirit of the Sexual Kind

It had been about ten years since my last visit to La Vita e Bella in Belltown. Back then I ate pizza, which I recall being decent, though I don’t think it would compare to the quality of what you can find elsewhere in Seattle…

Sexy Feast: Collections Café Serves Up a Lot to Swallow

Last week, I was lucky to attend an opening event for Collections Café at the new Chihuly Garden and Glass. The artist’s work is stunning and dramatic–a real feast for the eyes. And the artwork extends into the café, which houses fascinating displays of things…

Sexy Feast: Li’l Woody’s, a Lotta Crack, and Some Intellectual Foreplay

I was one of many who ventured over to Li’l Woody’s in Capitol Hill on Monday to celebrate National Hamburger Day. The line for free burgers was long, but worth it, as the hand-formed, Painted Hills beef patties had nice, smoky flavor. I especially liked…

Sexy Feast: The Coterie Room Promotes Spooning in Exclusive Small Groups (of Two)

During last month’s Seattle Restaurant Week, I wanted to try an “upscale” eatery offering a low-cost, $15 lunch. What better place than The Coterie Room? This relatively new restaurant from Spur chefs Brian McCracken and Dana Tough served a superb menu during SRW. I went…

Sexy Feast: Chen’s Village Serves Up a Scary Hookup

It’s rare that I eat dinner alone in Seattle. But two weeks ago, my partner had gone to Tokyo ahead of me, and I had eaten everything perishable out of the refrigerator, leaving only condiments and beverages. It was my last night in town, I…

Sexy Feast: Kisaku Will Make You Want to Swallow

I’m endlessly asked to recommend the best sushi restaurant in Seattle. Along with Sushi Kappo Tamura (featured in a previous Sexy Feast about head), I heartily recommend Kisaku in Tangletown. The fish is fabulous, there’s a neighborhood feeling, and the quality to price is probably…

Sexy Feast: Roxy’s Diner Serves Up “the Most Sensual of All the Salted Cured Meats”

What I miss from New York: choices of subway lines, reliably aggressive driving, and attitude. Food-wise, I miss pizza, bagels, and bialys. And good delis. Oh, we have some amazing sandwich shops in Seattle, like Paseo and Salumi. But I’d gladly trade a few of…
