If you spend much time on this blog you'll notice the many references to Seattle and breakfast/brunch. The two seem intertwined and something I always look forward to during trips back home. A recent trip over Easter weekend was no exception...
When touching down in Seattle I've taken to spending more and more time in Ballard, an area undergoing a revival on it's way to becoming industrial chic. The food - and restaurants - seem to be keeping pace. My recent favorite is Stoneburner which is a modern take on Italian food. And while the food is pretty stellar, like many locations in Ballard, it's the building, setting and aesthetic that do the trick.
Check out the bar when you're there (someone had a great eye for detail) and then dive into the food. Oh, and on Sundays the farmer's market is close and well-stocked with great vendors.
