Sexy Feast: Trellis, Flan, and a Stimulus for Sex Education

Trellis probably tops my list of the most underrated restaurants in the Seattle area. It’s low-key, it’s in a hotel (the Heathman), and it’s in Kirkland. No wonder I’m always answering the “Trellis…never heard of it…where is it?” question. This is a gem of a…

Sexy Feast: Pecado Bueno Wants You Hot and Bothered…with Your Permission

Across from the Fremont Abbey, appropriately enough, is a Mexican restaurant with a name that translates to “Sin Well”: Pecado Bueno. Sin well you will when tempted by a “fire and ice” experience at this new outpost from a co-founder of Taco del Mar. The…

Sexy Feast: Going Down at Blue Moon Burgers

Go to any of Blue Moon Burgers‘ three locations, and you’ll find the menu presents many options for building your own burger. For example, the “Protein” section starts with beef but also includes grilled chicken, turkey, salmon, and a couple of vegetarian choices. From years…
