THE LAYOVER SEATTLE NOTES
Aside from Canlis, Tony also suggested Sitka and Spruce (although he
did not visit it on this episode) for “insanely high quality
produce-driven dishes”. However, Sitka and Spruce closed in December 2019.
If both are too much for you, Tony suggested Quinn’s Pub and its Wild Boar
Tony described Rainer Restaurant and BBQ as a “shrine
of Vietnamese home cooking”. For traditional Thai street food, he
suggested Little Uncle, but
it closed its doors for good in September 2019. For after-dinner drinks, Tony
stopped by Shorty’s for a
pint of Manny’s Pale Ale. He also suggested Sun Liquor Distillery, a bar
that makes its own gin and vodka. However, it has been shuttered for good on
June 25, 2017. For brown liquor, Tony suggested Canon.
