A tale of two fins

I was walking around Seattle recently, enjoying the atmosphere of a city that has finally settled into spring, and came across a restaurant called Red Fin. It’s in the Hotel Max on Stewart Street. The restaurant wasn’t more than a mile from Redfin, the real estate Web site and broker on First Avenue downtown, and I wondered if there was a link.

Redfin spokesman Bahn Lee said the only tie between the two were some awkward phone calls.

“There really is no connection other than that we receive a lot of misguided dinner reservation requests and their waiting staff is probably asked how to best apply their commission refund to their closing costs,” he said.

Perhaps the Fins can combine services. Would you like a duplex with your sushi?
