El Gaucho in Bellevue opens tonight

Well, they just opened the doors at Bellevue’s El Gaucho, where dinner service makes its debut in, oh, about 15 minutes. Too bad I’m leaving the office to head up I-5 and grill some lamb chops at home, when I could be driving across 520 to eat a honkin’ Gaucho steak and drink a classic martini. Oh well: there’s gin at home. And olives. And a cold martini glass in the freezer. And after dinner, maybe I’ll take some fresh fruit, and a hunk of blue cheese that’s hiding in the “dairy drawer” in my fridge, arrange it on a silver platter and make pretend.
