Last meal I ate in Seattle was at FareStart. It's a hotel/restaurant that gets homeless back on their feet by helping them to be chefs.
A pretty nice place. Cool, pleasant, sleek black furniture.
I had the Gypsy Soup and Sourdough Bread. Both very good.
The coffee was awful, but it was Starbuck's, and they'd donated it. So put up with the bad coffee, or order the tea.
Good prices, nice people. If you're going to be downtown, eat there.
If I hadn't had that tooth problem, I would have tried one of the scrumptious-looking deserts.
They feature Seattle-area gourmet chefs once very week -- reservations recommended. August 14, it will be David Bramer, from the 35th Street Bistro.
