All You Can Eat

Trend-setting restaurants, Northwest cookbooks, local food news and the people who make them happen.

Who do ya love?

Last night, because our evening went sideways, timewise, my husband suggested we go out for dinner. When our son made a bid for his favorite Chinese restaurant, Szechuan 99, we agreed. The atmosphere at this little Lynnwood haunt may leave something to be desired (hello, 1970’s!), but they’ve got several dishes we’re collectively addicted to, like the tea smoked duck, hand-shaven noodles and Szechuan 99 Fish (I’m nuts about the housemade soft tofu, but my boys don’t do tofu). Yet the main draw here, for me at least, is this guy, Charlie, seen here holding our fish:

The look on his face says it all: Charlie likes his job. And when a waiter is as helpful and friendly as this guy — who frequently holds down the fort solo, but rarely stops smiling no matter how busy he gets — it adds a lot to the dining experience. So, I’m asking: What waiter (or waitress) makes your day and keeps you coming back for more? And where can we find them?
