No Soul - what now?

Being a Seattleite, years went by before I went to Alligator Soul, in Everett, but when I finally got there it was damn like being back in Alabama. Jambalaya a little purified for the true South, but much better than others of this coast. I see Everett in my schedule for February, and wonder if there is any other great venue I can kill by my visit?

  1. Mr. Nelso, I was sad to hear they had closed as well. (Although I never get to Everett, I used to frequent their Greenlake location when it was open.) Toulouse Petit, located at the base of Queen Anne hill, has been providing some excellent Southern and Creole dishes. Their shrimp & grits are wonderful as is their spicy fried chicken gumbo. For more edgy offerings try Tuna Tartare or Helix snails. With over 70 happy hour offerings, you'll not leave hungry.

    1. Celtic Bayou in Lynnwood is not bad. Marimba in Everett is great for unique spicy south american food instead of Cajun.

        My room-mate's friend reported to me tonight that Alligator Soul closed down their Everett location, and then subsequently re-opened in Lynnwood. I have yet to confirm this. Personally, I haven't been yet, but am really hoping that the rumor is true, as I was dying to try it.

      2. Nor Everett that I know of, but one in downtown Olympia. It's right across from the old capital building and park off of Soquel I think?

        1. Where Ya at Matt! http://www.whereyaatmatt.com/. This is actually a food truck but real deal delicious food. The shrimp and grits, yum but the gumbo is the best!!

          1. Apparently the original owners moved to Savannah, GA in 2001 and have a restaurant by the same name there.

              Try not to worry.
              Soon enough, they'll be back.
