I had a great experience with Bridgetown Moving. I hired them for a local move and they showed up on time and were extremely professional. One large/heavy piece of furniture required them to get very creative given the tight space and they persevered without any damage done to the house or the furniture. They were very accommodating when I had them move some of the furniture around in the new place while I figured out the best placements. Competitive pricing and very careful work.
It is very rare in this city to come across a store that combines great prices, selection and amazing customer service. This place feels like your neighborhood spot and I would literally rather spend my money here than anyplace else. They have a really nice assortment of beads (semiprecious, glass, horn, sterling, etc.), findings (silver and gold filled) and I can easily lose hours of time browsing around. I have yet to walk in and come out empty handed.
We all make bad decisions when we've been drinking-- whether it be giving your phone number to a guy in overalls, or putting that Toto song on the jukebox (did I say Jukebox? I meant ipod). But especially when it comes to culinary choices, my beer googles get the best of me. So I know I should forgive myself for returning time and again to the brite spot, but really, first time shame on you, next time shame on me!
The thing is, I want to like this place-- its convenient, open late, serves vegetarian philly steak sandwiches and soyrizo-- but each time I find myself disappointed and to be honest-- ashamed of myself (see man in overalls).
To be fair, you can't go too wrong with basic eggs and hashbrowns, but I wouldn't venture beyond that. And I certainly wouldn't wait in line for it.
Cannot promise that after a couple of peach schnapps I won't be back, but you're better off finding a tar-co truck.
I had been anxiously awaiting LAMill's opening for months because living on the other side of the lake (read: too far to walk to Inteligentsia) I was looking forward to a strong coffee close to home. On the opening day I walked up-- saw people inside-- but the doors were locked. I was annoyed at the lack of signage, but chalk it up to first weekend open. The next am I met my mom there for coffee and paid over $4 for an Americano. The condiment cart (if I may) was tastefully done with fanned cocktail napkins, but I imagined the chaos on a weekday morning when commuters are waiting in line-- it just seemed too precious. The interior is lovely, but honestly, at the risk of sounding like McScrooge, it just doesn't feel like a neighborhood spot-- expect Century BMW and Marina license plates in the parking lot.
With the Backdoor now shut down, I feel like our neighborhood is turning into Silver Hills. That said, I will still be paying almost 4 bux for an Americano- but it will be at Inteligentsia -- at least I feel at home there.
I've gone to a lot of eyebrow specialists (the eyebrow kings of the world, if you will) and no one compares to Jill at Bella Cara. I have my fellow yelp-ers to thank for the recommendation and so glad I went. She is sweet, quick and a perfectionist. You won't be disappointed!
My sister, who used to live in Seattle, crepes her pants about this place so I went in expecting a similar reaction. On the contrary. The barrista was rude even though I added a dolla to the tip jar Costanza style. My latte was good, but honestly no better than Starbucks.
Points for the condiment bar which includes chocolate chips of which my friend spooned copious amounts into her drink.
Strike for the gentleman in the corner whose hair smelled so bad we had to leave.
All I can say is the salsa here must be made in New York City. Get a rope.
Two stars instead of one because they were open late and were quick to the table with free chips.
I had the tortilla soup which was a huge bowl of tomato-y broth with a few bits of chicken and a slice of avocado. It was a-ight.
Friend was stoked because they sub veggie ground round for meat.
Sis got the refried beans and they weren't bad.
Left grateful to be living in SoCal...
We ended up at this restaurant because much to our surprise, the entire city of Seattle stops serving food at 10pm on a Friday night-- with the exception of Dahlia Lounge. They were serving till 11 so we wandered in having heard it was a nice spot. Immediately we were greeted by a very friendly and accommodating hostess as well as quite possibly one of the nicest servers I've ever experienced. At our table was one vegetarian who was pleased with the menu. She ordered a vegetable sampler which had five tastings including a carrot soup, asparagus and this amazing mushroom with cheese. I had the halibut which was prepared with broth and pancetta. Very yum. To start we ordered the french fries (as you do) which came with an amazing curry ketchup which my friend tried to eat with a spoon. However, though dinner was fab, the real pleaser was the dessert which included a PB&J cannoli and a little bag of hot, fresh donuts with a side of creme fraiche and clementine jam. WOW. My same friend who tried to eat the ketchup also tried to eat the cinnamon sugar coating of the donuts.
We then gorged on the delightful chocolate mints they have on the way out.
What a treat, would recommend this place to everyone!
When I wasn't shoving nuts in my mouth I was stuffing myself with the mini-donuts from this stand. They dont have a wide selection here, just the basics: plain, cinnamon & sugar, powdered and spinkles, but they were out of sprinkles when i went. However, was too distracted by the hot cinnamon and sugar to notice. Powdered was eh because they weren't hot but i managed to scarf regardless. The only downside is the inhale of crab leggz when you go to take a bite-- the donut stand is around le corner from the fish tossers.
