Favorite Late Night Snack
Theo's Chocolate. Pretty much any flavor, but especially anything salted.
Best Meal Ever
One of my favorite meals happened in a small restaurant in Udine in Northern Italy. It is an upscale place called Vitello di Oro but might have had the worst lighting of any restaurant I’ve ever been. But something about the restaurant made it feel comfortable and the food was ridiculously good. Langostine crudo that practically melted in your mouth, really delicate handmade ravioli; if I could be eating anywhere in the world tonight, it might be there.
Favorite Seattle Restaurants
Kashiba is #1, but Ethan is probably going to say the same. Best sushi in town. My very close #2 is Poppy. Love the thali-style dining, love the ingredients.
Restaurant Pet Peeve
Restaurants that don't live by their hours. If you say you are open until 10:00, don't tell me you are "wrapping up" at 9:45.
Favorite Place In The World
Can't Live Without
What's On The DVR?
I like bad TV. I plead the 5th.
What's On The Nightstand?
My Kindle and a bottle of water.
What's On The iPod?
I hate to say it, but my husband's love of Taylor Swift might be rubbing off on me.
What I've Learned
Work hard, but have a life outside of work. Be nice.
