Favorite pork chop in Seattle?

I rarely order pork chops because I find that they're either hit or miss, and usually the latter, rather than the former. A good pork chop should be flavorful, reasonably fatty on the edges, juicy as hell, and in a perfect world, layered enough in flavor so that you don't get totally palate-fatigued 1/3 of the way through it. So if I were to jump back into the pork chop game, where would you suggest going for a no-fail PC?

    1. I love the pork chop at The Boat Street Cafe.

        Boat Street for sure. We just had it again last week and it was fantastic.

      2. Dot's Delicatessen, on Fremont Ave, cut me a couple delectable ones just the other day. I did not ask them to fry them up, but they do have fire, pans, and talent.

          Dot's had both smoked pork chops and non-smoked in the case today when we went for happy hour today.

        2. You maybe wouldn't expect it, but when it's on the menu at Oddfellows, it's great (10th/Pine).

          1. Nearly everything I've had at Local 360 has been disappointing, except for the pork chop. I loved it. I really want to like this place since it's close to me, but every meal has been a let down. Especially the breakfast/brunch items. Yes, I realize I am in the minority here. I've tried it 4 times now.

              I rarely order it as I think I can do better with a brined chop at home (based off Suzanne Goin's recipe from the Lucques cookbook) but I like the version that someone had at Lecosho when I went there earlier this "summer."

                Greg Atkinson also has a great recipe for a brined chop. I'll look forw Goin's too, love to try new methods.
