Magazine says Seattle is a sad place with good food
“You have to leave it to love it,” a waitress told writer Gary Shteyngart when he recently visited Seattle.
Shteyngart was penning a piece on Seattle for Travel+Leisure’s “Seattle State of Mind” feature in its latest issue, and he didn’t have to leave to love the city. His article is part love letter and part travel guide; he drops some names and raves about some of our restaurants. (Who else is worried they won’t be able to snag one of Ocho’s few and tiny tables anymore?)
Shteyngart writes that he wanted a new take on the city: “Avoid all weather clichés and weather by-products. No rain, no melancholy, no coffee, no flannel, no grunge.”
