in continuing with the tradition of hijacking friends’ christmases, i jumped on a bandwagon headed due north to vancouver. unfortunately, my audi-owner friend forbade in-car consumption, and thus i required sustenance to endure a snack-free three hour ride. this presented the perfect opportunity to stop in at seattle restaurateur tom douglas’s latest venture, seatown seabar & rotisserie (commonly referred to as seatown snackbar). it was breakfast time at seatown, but i figure, if a place can get breakfast right, then dinner service can’t be that far behind. they exceeded expectations with super simple but tasty morning munchies like my porchetta, red pepper and arugula fried egg sandwich and my accomplice’s chorizo, fennel aioli, and avocado doppelgänger. wash it all down with an a.m. fernet and we were on the road again.
