Where to eat North Seattle to Everett, Saturday.
We are heading northwards on Saturday afternoon to catch some roller derby in Everett. It isn't often that we are in that area during mealtime so I am looking for some recommendations. We will either make it an late lunch/super early dinner (round 3ish) or be looking for a later dinner (8:00-9:00). Open to any suggestions you have for good food done right. Not particular about ambiance or really looking for white tablecloths. Thanks in advance for any pointers! Budget is flexible so long as the extra expense is put toward the food rather than pomp and circumstance.
You might head down to Edmonds either early or late to eat; there is a great strollable downtown area, all decorated for the holidays, and some very tasty eateries.
My parents live there, and we like to eat at Demetri's Woodstone Taverna, right on Main St. down by the ferry - lot's of delish' small plates, and a big fireplace. Girardi's for Italian is also good, but my parents like it more than I - they have a great happy hour. Chanterell's is also nice, with daily specials best bets, and good if your a family.
I second the vote for Demetri's. It's a terrific place with lots of tasty small plates and good toddies. I especially like the bacon wrapped dates and the flatbreads. If you're looking for something a little more upscale, Epulo would be a good bet. I believe it's also on Main, but farther away from the ferry traffic and the water.
Pasteur Noodles has very good pho.
If you're a meat-lover, try Gabriel's Fire in Mountlake Terrace. He has a big menu, but I only like a few items. The ribs, brisket, and pulled pork are very good. They are done Texas-style with a dry rub and don't need sauce. Sides are just ok. Focus on the meat.
I love the burgers at Redline. They make hand-cut fries. It's a little place, and easy to fly past. Redline is the little grey building on the SE corner of Rt 99 and 208th st..
