Around the Paramount??

It's funny, how we can get stuck in our comfort zones! I live in Belltown, walk everywhere, and when I dine out I usually stay in Belltown. The Paramount is just a few more blocks away, but I feel almost like a tourist when leaving my neighborhood! So I'm at a loss to come up with a place to eat before seeing RENT on Friday evening with friends. Any suggestions??

      Also Urbane was very good on a recent visit. In the new Hyatt at Olive & 8th.

        I have been wondering about Urbane, as they advertise in the playbills. Can you expand your review?

    2. Machiavelli's. Be sure to arrive early to get on the wait list and enjoy a drink in the bar. It's my favorite pre-Paramount restaurant.
