News you can eat: The Nov. 21 week in food

by Bethany Jean Clement Seattle Times Food Writer SPAGHETTI WESTERN is open on Capitol Hill, serving barbecue and, yes, spaghetti. Spaghetti Western is chef/owner Aleks Dimitrijevic’s revamp of his La Bête; he says it’s “a lot more fun,” and it’s definitely more down-home, with Western knickknacks, tin trays, and Sergio Leone–style movies playing on screens above the…

Jaws drop all the time outside the Fremont and Ballard locations of Paseo, ready to take big, sloppy bites out of some of Seattle’s best and most beloved sandwiches.

Seattle restaurants on Yelp’s top 100 must-try list

We all have our ups and downs with Yelp, but it’s hard to argue with the Seattle restaurants on its list of the nation’s top 100 places to eat (or, as they lengthily described it, the “ultimate, try-before-you-die, food-coma-inducing, so-good-it-makes-you-want-to-slap-your-momma places to eat across the globe.”) Paseo, a mainstay on just about…
