New Steakhouse in Town The soon-to-open Sullivan’s Steakhouse at Sixth and Union has put the polish on its Seattle menu, illustrating incredible cuisine at unexpected value. Chef’s Selections tempt with pure bliss. The bone-in Kansas City strip ($39) heaps on an 18-ounce steak to dominate the plate. Non-steak must-tries include the pan seared black cod “Hong Kong Style,” with baby Bok Choy and sherry-soy glaze ($34) and JL’s all-beef Meatloaf ($19) among many more! Complimentary salad is served with all entrees (choose from the Iceberg Lettuce Wedge with Blue Cheese Dressing or Caesar; other salads are a nominal charge). Doors open June 19!

Cherries are coming! The rise of June means Northwest Cherries are coming in the next few weeks! This seasonal (and highly freezable!) super food brings a super sweet, juicy punch to your eating repertoire. Energize, calm inflammation, and enjoy the low calorie, high fiber, no fat treat that you’ll love. After the deep red Bing cherries thrill you, those golden, blush-kissed Rainiers aren’t far behind to arrive at the supermarket. Stock up because you know half of your purchase might not even make it home (we won’t tell)!

Down on the Water After Memorial Day Weekend, Maggie’s is the scene for resort life at its finest. There are days when the huge patio fronting Maggie’s feels like something ripped from the pages of a J Crew catalog. The clatter of lines tapping the masts of sailboats docked at Elliott Bay Marina create summer’s natural percussion. Between taking in a fabulous view and the scent of salt water and a Northwest microbrew, your meal arrives. Maybe it’s a burger sizzled to perfection, a huge salad you’ll tackle now and then the rest later, or something a little more carnivorous; Maggie’s has you covered at lunch or dinner, indoors or out.

Chef’s expanded farm “doubles” your dining pleasure! Trellis’ Executive Chef Brian Scheehser enjoys a very close connection to the herbs, fruit and vegetables served at the restaurant, largely because he grows many of them himself. Recently, his five-acre parcel doubled in size after he took on a five-acre, former U-pick parcel located next to his original plot. The addition brings Flemish pears, six varieties of apples, seven varieties of blueberries, and three varieties each of raspberries and blackberries. Currently at Trellis, Scheehser is serving his baby leeks, baby red onions, baby garlic, mixed greens, leaf endive, sage blossoms, chive blossoms, Woodinville sweet grilling onions, purple passion asparagus, salad burnet, baby beets, sorrel, kale and mustard greens. Peas and strawberries are on the way to the restaurant soon! Experience this all-natural freshness and flavor for yourself at Trellis.
