His Good Food: Chef Tom Douglas


One of my favorite chefs, Tom Douglas is one of the million reasons why I love Seattle. A very, very important reason. Until I find a better pizza, a fresher grapefruit salad, or a better salmon kabob, he will remain a favorite of mine. Tidbits from Seattle.

I think I miss it already.

Chef Tom Douglas has a number of restaurants in downtown Seattle. I recommend Serious Pie for a casual lunch (no reservations and there’s usually a wait, so get there early, or late). And the “pizza special of the day” is almost always divine because of the fresh and seasonal ingredients he uses. For a more intimate dinner, I recommend Dahlia Lounge. For a people, open space, louder scene, I recommend Palace Kitchen. For sunday brunch, I recommend Lola. For the triple coconut cream pie that you can’t get enough of, go to Dahlia Bakery. Oh, and if you’re a fan of seafood, you can never go wrong with ordering anything from the sea.
