Eatin' Good Outside the Hood

Not that there's anything wrong with Belltown, but it's good to get out. Reaching back into the hard drive, by-now month-old photos of dinner at Union Bay Café in Laurelhurst. The restaurant is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer with $25, three-course dinners like this one: capelli with fresh peas, sweetbreads with capers, shortcake with berries and crème fraîche. Savory food, appropriately modest portions, and every bite a sheer delight. Kudos to exec chef Mark Manley!

And, yes, a bottle of Tre Fanciulli, a luscious blend of cab sauv, merlot and syrah from JM Cellars, whose owners, John and Peggy Bigelow, live just down the street.
