Bar Sajor opening.jpg

Everyone went gaga over Matt Dillon's Sitka & Spruce (above, left) when he opened in the Melrose Market three years ago. This winter--yesterday, in fact--he add an offshoot in Pioneer Square, Bar Sajor (above, right). Same cool vibe, same sort of big, wood-fired oven. Will the tribe of eaters on the hill find their way into the dinginess of P-Square? Yeah, probably.

Meanwhile, René Erickson's got a new spot of her own The Whale Wins, in Fremont. Same cool vibe, same sort of big, wood-fired oven.

It's the new Seattle norm: a room that looks set up to film a commercial for fabric softener, and a style of cooking that eschews classic à la minute preparation in favor of roasting stuff ahead of time, plating at a counter, and serving room temperature.

Fussy, self-absorbed and entitled eaters don't get it. Tough.
