Pioneer Square roundup

I work just north of PS and love some of the new things that are going in.

I just went to Rainshadow Meats on Occidental and the sandwiches are absolutely delicious (I had the Romanesco, my friend had the Reuben). The butcher case looks very nice. It's nice to have this option this time of year, when negoitating the Market is so hard due to cruise ship crowds. I'll probably be getting my prosciutto here rather than Delaurenti.

Bar Sajor isn't really my thing--I don't love any of Matt Dillon's restaurants (I don't think they are bad, but I just never love the dishes) but it's a great space and I had a nice time with some oysters and an after work drink recently. And I'm looknig forward to London Plane, the bakery Dillon is opening in the old BOA space.

Il Corvo is such a good addition.

There's a new farmer's market on Wed from 10-2 in Occidental Park that starts next week, which I'll be going to; I'm sure it will be small but it'll be nice to pick up some veggies/berries midweek.

I'm excited about some of the new things slated to open, like LIttle Uncle.
If anyone has any other PS tips/reviews, I'd love to hear them.

    I work around PS, too.

    There are several great sandwich places... if we got a branch of Paseo, it'd basically be sandwich heaven:

    Rainshadow Meats, which you've mentioned.

    Tats Deli, locally famous for having authentic and tasty cheese-steaks, they also have a nice variety of cold sandwiches.

    Salumi, a Seattle destination restaurant known for it's cured meats. Also packs a terrific porchetta sandwich.

    Delicatus offers very high quality sandwiches with a large, varied menu.

      It looks like the Pioneer Square outpost of Little Uncle opened yesterday. I'm looking forward to trying it, I'll probably wait a few weeks.

        I will probably be too excited to wait to try Little Uncle, but I'll cut them some slack at first.

        And there is Tinello, too:

            Little Uncle is well worth checking out already. You wouldn't actually know they just opened by the food or service (the space seems a little unfinished). What a great addition to the 'hood. I had some beautifully poached checken with winter melon soup, and catfish fritters. The only slight negative was that it's in a basement, and ventilation isn't great, and the room was a bit smoky/spicy. But it wasn't a deal breaker. We went at 11:30 and had no line but people started coming in droves after us. But they handled it well, and food was coming out of the kitchen promptly.

          I had a sour cherry and rhubarb shaved ice (with evap milk) today at Little Uncle that was terrific. An absolute knockout.

            That is a great tip, as the shaved ice doesn't appear on the online menu. I'd like to try their beef cheek sarabao as well. The Seattle hit list is growing!

              They often post specials on Facebook.

                Thanks for the reminder -- I often forget to look on facebook, and it doesn't seem to come up in google searches.

            il Corvo is awesome. Favorite restaurant in the city right now. The specials are great, and the al Inferno is really amazing.
