I don't know about you but I find it frustrating trying to find more than one vegie option on local menus, plus I like the idea of a socially conscious restaurant. I'm thinking of something more like the Sunlight Cafe rather than something heuty teuty.. I've never worked in a restaurant, and don't have any money, but hey, that's what community is all about right?
La Medusa, Tutta Bella, El Sombrero, Wabi Sabi, Geraldine's, Island Soul, the Bakery, Both Ways Cafe, Flying Squirrel, …
Not that I wouldn't welcome another restaurant, but there's tons of veggie options on all of these menus.
Pretty much the BBQ joints and the Pho place are the only ones where you might run into a lack of options.
I'd love to see a Surrogate Hostess type coffee house/restaurant in CC. It was kind of a bohemian, veggie, local purveyor of the most delicious food ever. I'm still trying to find something to replace their delightful Autumn Bisque and thickly sliced homemade wheat bread. The placed oozed such charm and comfort… You could read the paper there for hours on a icky day and they were very family friendly.
It was around in the mid-to-late 90's on 19th Ave E and Aloha on north Capitol Hill. Across the street from St. Joe's, where sadly, Tully stands today…
Wow, haven't heard the name of that place in a long, long time. Miss that place.
I have fond memories of a certain day in there, years ago; met a woman who had just returned from an anthropological trip around the world, to investigate the origins of female lead societies.
Interesting timing because I'm now reading about Johann Bachofen and his research into "matriarchal clans around which primates evolved into hominids".
Anyway, would love to see a Surrogate Hostess-like place open in CC. BTW: I believe it's less about the business and more about the people who gather. There are current CC businesses that have the potential to become this type of place if they're willing to let go of their pretensions.
