My Edmonds Restaurant News: Nourish your brain and exercise it too with local game nights

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Nourish your brain and exercise it too with local game nights

Consider this. Many local eateries nourish our brains and exercise them, at the same time. Trivia Games and Quiz Nights are held on just about every night of the week. Here are fun-filled spots in our town and at nearby locations. A My Edmonds News reader reported her family had tons of fun at Hamburger Harry’s. Folks offer sage advice: “Get there early and save your team a seat.” Trivia nig... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Award-winning food, from spots nearby

I retired from my broker job in specialty foods, but still keep tabs on food trends and products that may be used in our local restaurants’ kitchens or can be found the shelves at our local stores like Cheesemonger’s Table or PCC Market, here in Edmonds. Each year at the Summer Fancy Food Show, exceptional food products are recognized with Sofi awards, presented by the Specialty Food Association. ... »

Simon Majumdar’s newest read, “Fed,  White and Blue,” has an entire chapter dedicated to his American experience brewing beer, right here in Edmonds at American Brewing Company. Our local libation location is listed in his final synopsis too of his top-10 favorite places visited on his culinary adventures across the USA. Simon signed copies of his latest book, mine included. Hey, I’m a... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: We dish on patio dining and College Cafe fare

My Edmonds Restaurant News: We dish on patio dining and College Cafe fare

Summer has arrived. Edmonds diners intent on exposure to the sun are parked on patios and camped out on chairs and tables at the front of many at local restaurants. I found over 30 locations that have “outdoor seating” as an option. You can see the list here. Coffee tastes better when your breakfast or brunch brew is accompanied by birds’ song. Benches full? Warm days mean Walnut Street Coffee wil... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Carnarino goes beyond gelato; Boiling Point brings heat to Hwy 99

My Edmonds kind of desserts. Canarino Gelato Caffé opened as promised on May 8 at its new location, 201 5th Ave. S., #105. Chandeliers’ sparkle and the elegant décor remind me of the “gelaterie” I visited in Florence, Italy. My taste buds experienced more Italian déjà vu as I sampled various Canarino’s gelato and sorbetto flavors. Owner Ali Ataman uses the same recipes as the Fainting Goat, ... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: My favorite kind of Edmonds dining — at the market

Our Garden Market is open and mobile dining al fresco style is in full swing. Here is my report on my favorite restaurant scene in Edmonds. The Garden Market opened on May 2 and ends on June 13, hours 9 a.m.-2 p.m. It’s followed by our more robust version, the Summer Market, which starts on June 20, closes on Oct. 3, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Located in the Public Safety parking lot at 5th and Bell in d... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: What’s brewing in Edmonds? Beer, the Garden Market and much more

May is chock full of holidays — many opportunities to celebrate with food and drink in our local community. May Day launches the month, and May 2 marks the first day of our Edmonds Garden Market, sponsored by the Edmonds Historical Museum through June 13. (The full-size Farmers Market starts June 20 and runs through Oct. 2.) I’ll report soon on new food options for hungry market shoppers to ... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Tea for you, tea for me, Baicha has my kind of tea!

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Tea for you, tea for me, Baicha has my kind of tea!

I’m on the road, at a writers retreat in Algonkian, Virginia. We plan a field trip to view Washington, D.C.-area blossoms, which arrive late this year, due to ice accumulation in the waters that only began to melt last week. Cherry blossoms in D.C. remind me of Japan, which reminds me of my favorite variety of tea. Gyokuro, also known as Precious Dew Pearl, is a highly famous tea from Japan. The d... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Easter brunches, pint-sized thievery and chickens for change

Spring has officially started. YAY. I hope to see outdoor patios in use soon, at our local restaurants, although a bit later than Easter Sunday since temps are listed in the mid 50’s that day. But this is not the “weather column,” so on to the restaurant news. Easter Sunday Restaurant Specials Contact the restaurant to check on availability/make reservations. And be sure to visit the My Edmonds Ne... »

Salt and Iron: My Edmonds kind of restaurant opening

Salt and Iron: My Edmonds kind of restaurant opening

Wow! My preview of Salt and Iron was called a “soft opening.” In restaurant lingo it means they “practice” on willing diners, to tweak any bugs in their menu or recipes and allow servers to get up to speed on technique. Believe me when I say “willing diners,” it was a full house. I was lucky to get a two top in the bar, on last Thursday at 5 p.m. When I walked up to the venue — windows... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Dinner and show, Chanterelle’s new bar and St. Pat’s Day dining

Years ago I saw the movie CHOCOLAT at our Edmonds Theater. I walked out of the movie house with a strong desire for anything chocolate. Hot chocolate, chocolate mousse, I’d have settled for a Dark Chocolate Hershey bar from the concession at the theater, but there was none at hand. The little café next door had closed for the night. Ditto at the restaurant across the street, they closed every even... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: A taste of house-made heaven at Epulo

My Edmonds Restaurant News: A taste of house-made heaven at Epulo

Research can be tough. Recently, as I read the description of Greek yogurt panna cotta on the Epulo dessert menu, I swear my jeans shrank a size. What can I say? I do love good food and especially desserts. Imagine my delight when Epulo Bistro owner Tim Morris invited me to learn about and sample their house-cured meats, sausages and their amazing house-made pouches of heaven, better known as Burr... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Valentine’s Day menus await you and your sweetheart

Extraordinary, Elegant, Euphoric, Ecstatic…mere words cannot describe our Edmonds Kinds of Valentine’s Day offerings! We all know that chocolate is good for us, right? Just in case you need supporting data, here is a direct quote: “Chocolate is made from the cacao bean, and beans are considered legumes, which are considered vegetables” So eat your vegetables! BTW —  almost every one of our l... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: A trip to the Mediterranean, without leaving our city limits

My Edmonds Restaurant News: A trip to the Mediterranean, without leaving our city limits

OK, it was a culinary expedition, Edmonds-style, of course. I had the good fortune to attend a company-hosted party at Demetris WoodStone Taverna again this holiday season. An opportunity to sample virtually every item on the happy hour menu and mini versions of their standard entrées and desserts and fond memories of their tender, crispy calamari, sampled during the Taste of Edmonds, inspired me.... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Help for keeping (or breaking) those resolutions

Need help keeping New Year’s resolutions or temptations to help you break them? I’ll bet many of us made the same commitment to ourselves, maybe aloud to others too, that this was the year we’d eat better. The parking lots at local fitness clubs are jammed, but this is only half of the battle. In order to get those pounds off and keep them at bay, one must eat less — and help is at hand! Man... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Edmonds kind of New Year’s

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. It’s time to plan where you want to enjoy this special holiday. Looking for a fun New Year’s Eve dinner or maybe a reason not to cook the next day? Once we’ve experienced the thrill of the Space Needle fireworks, and don’t want to be drivers in the destruction derby in the wee hours of the New Year, how do we pass the NYE event? Not to wo... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: A candidate for cheese and change plus latest on food scene

“Local” resident cheese monger Strom Peterson is a candidate for change in our community — an Edmonds small-business owner, a City Councilmember, and now the newly-elected 21st District Representative to the State Legislature. Nine years ago, Peterson opened Olives as a specialty food shop with a deli in back. Specialty cheeses played an important role. Gourmet condiments and a great selecti... »

My Edmonds Restaurant News: Breakfast in Edmonds, on a weekday?

My mate asked a favor. It involved getting up earlier than usual and following him to the repair shop so he could drop off his Jetta.” Sure, why not.” I must not have looked too enthusiastic, as he added “I’ll take you out for breakfast!” Great! I had a few days to plan out where…we do love our brunch on the weekends, but on a weekday… hmmm where to go? I polled several “locals” and here are sugge... »
