Seattle's top-rated local foodie radio show wants me on the air next week to discuss South Sound restaurants.
I haven't given the producer my answer.
Frankly, I'm terrified I'll speak my mind.
Here's the deal, if you haven't already figured it out: The South Sound doesn't have that many restaurants that are worth the 40-mile drive from Seattle. How's that for reverse discrimination?
Here's a short list of contenders: Primo Grill. Brix 25. Pacific Grill. Island Style Barbecue.
Here are several maybes: Quickie Too. The Mark. Il Fiasco. Marzano's. Over the Moon Cafe. JT's Original Louisiana Bar-B-Que. La Creme Brulee. Stadium Bistro. Asado.
Here are some that could have but won't: Masa. Indochine.
Here's what I ask of you: Give me a dope-slap reminder of what's worth recommending to out-of-town foodies.
