Puget Sound Bite: The Whale Wins

The Whale Wins just got named by Bon Appetit magazine as one of the best new restaurants in the U.S.  As if it wasn't difficult to get a table at TWW before, I can only imagine what it will be like now.  But that's ok.  Because this restaurant deserves every bit of praise it's getting.  And if you go at 5pm (like I have on the past two occasions), you can bypass all that waiting anyways. Which is important because the food passing by your table will begin to make you impatient for your chance to try. I liken The Whale Wins to a fine indoor picnic.  The food isn't fussy, much of it is room temperature, and their salads are the shining stars on the menu (imho). Please don't leave this restaurant without ordering the roasted carrots and yogurt. And do me a favor and finish off your meal with a slice of their life-changing zucchini bread. The Whale Wins is everything you'd want in a picnic, minus the bugs (and with the addition of great drinks). Can't get much better than that.
their amazing zucchini bread (the trick? they smother it in butter before roasting it)

The Whale Wins is located at 3506 Stone Way N in Seattle
