Sexy Feast: Feeling the Heat and Affirming Homosexuality at How to Cook a Wolf

It had been a long time since I had stepped inside How to Cook a Wolf. I’ve long lamented the lack of good restaurants in upper Queen Anne, automatically choosing to travel elsewhere. So when I’m thinking about where to eat, Wolf always falls off…

Sexy Feast: Uneeda Do It, Al Fresco Style

Seattle is experiencing a burger boom. Among the best of the bunch is Uneeda Burger in Fremont. Uneeda is a casual new eatery from Scott Staples of Restaurant Zoe and Quinn’s fame, so it’s fair to expect something slightly upscale, but still at an affordable…

Sexy Feast: Marination Station’s SPAM Slider Stirs the Loins and More

I’m one of legions who have loved Marination Mobile long enough that it earned accolades as the country’s best food cart in a Good Morning America challenge. And now that Marination Station has planted itself in Capitol Hill, there’s no need to go chasing down…

Sexy Feast: Chiso’s Bento Box Is a Veritable Pleasure Chest

At Japanese restaurants, I’m usually all about the sushi. But when I went to Chiso during Seattle Restaurant Week (or partial weeks, as they actually are) to capitalize on a three-course lunch for $15, I was more impressed with the bento box than the sushi…
