Yes, I (sparingly) use the term “foodies” — but only when I’m overcome by the need to alliterate. And oops, I did it again: in order to pass on some news via the “real-time” online reservations service that knows more about you than your next door neighbor does. Today OpenTable.com announced their 2009 “Fit for Foodies” Awards, in which those who make use of the service got out the vote, recommending restaurants fit for I-refuse-to-say-it-again. Among the nation’s top 50 vote getters were three Seattle restaurants: Restaurant Zoe, Spring Hill and Tilth. (Love them all.)
What they used to call us, before the word “Foodie” found favor.
Oh, and in case you missed it, Kathryn Robinson does a great riff on the subject in this month’s Seattle Metropolitan Magazine (read it here). All of which left me wondering: If someone asked you to list your top area restaurants fit for “GORMAYS,” what would you say?
